With spending on information security products and services forecast by Gartner to increase 8.7% to $124 billion in 2019, management is rightly requesting financial appraisals of cyber security investment proposals. Security solutions are implemented to reduce risk but, until now estimating potential reduction in risk has been very difficult. The emergence of quantitative techniques and tools for assessing and aggregating cyber risk have changed this and it is now possible to get much better data to inform our investment decision making.
Acuity Partner, Simon Marvell will discuss the issues around quantifying the benefits of security investments and will demonstrate with a practical example by forecasting the reduction in potential financial loss from implementation of an enterprise security solution. Simon will use STREAM v5.4 to support the example and demonstrate the results.
