‍ ‍ ‍Private equity (PE) firms are becoming increasingly attractive targets for cybercriminals. Malicious actors are keen to capitalize on the ecosystem's access to an incredibly extensive and diverse array of sensitive data, particularly susceptible during and after M&As, as well as the notoriously low cybersecurity measures in place among the smaller businesses that some PE firms chose to hold.

‍Since the SEC's latest cybersecurity regulations went into effect, thousands of companies have already been compelled to submit their annual Form 10-K with the novel Item 1C. Similarly, dozens of organizations have filed updated Form 8-Ks to disclose cybersecurity incidents. Slowly but surely, these public reports are helping investors become more aware of the intrinsic relationship between cyber risk and market value.

‍Successful entrepreneurs all have one thing in common: they know how to manage business risks effectively, even as they evolve. Since the inception of the modern marketplace, and arguably before, innovative leaders have been able to assess their organizations' internal and external vulnerabilities and develop mitigation strategies accordingly.

‍The process of achieving goals, whether long-term, short-term, personal, or professional, starts with harnessing the available relevant data. In fact, the more information gleaned beforehand, the more likely the mission will be a success. However, the details required for devising an effective plan exist at various granular levels, some overarching, focusing on the broader elements, and others more minute.

‍The power of an on-demand cyber risk quantification (CRQ) platform lies in its ability to harness an extensive amount of data, filter it, and consequently produce an objective assessment that offers key stakeholders an understanding of how likely their organization is to experience certain cyber events, along with the respective financial losses.

‍ “All models are wrong, but some are useful.” ‍ In the earliest days of cyber risk management, chief information security officers (CISOs) generally relied on matrices and other subjective risk assessments for strategic planning.

‍ Over the past few decades, cyber attackers have increasingly wreaked havoc on the market, taking advantage of newer, more sophisticated ways to exploit system vulnerabilities. However, in fear of losing competitive advantages, organizations had notoriously downplayed the impact of these attacks, misleading investors and resulting in stock prices that did not accurately represent the risk landscape. ‍

‍ ‍ Chief information security officers (CISO) or respective organizational cybersecurity leaders are most likely well aware of the cybersecurity risks their organizations face. However, being aware of and communicating important cyber risk management data to the board of directors are two entirely different matters.

Cybersecurity maturity assessments play a fundamental role in helping chief information security officers (CISOs) determine the level of risk their organizations face due to cyber activity. By illuminating the various areas that are exposed to exploitation, these evaluations serve as a blueprint for cybersecurity leaders tasked with making the business secure amid an increasingly risky operational landscape.

‍ ‍No organization, no matter the industry, is exempt from suffering from a cyber attack. The European Union formally recognized this modern-day reality in late 2022 when it published Directive (EU) 2016/1148, more commonly known as the NIS 2 Directive. As an updated version of the original directive enacted in 2016, this newer, sweeping cybersecurity regulation expanded its original scope to encompass even more business sectors.

By its nature, cyber risk is dynamic. New events happen and evolve all the time, making it difficult for enterprises to financially quantify their financial exposure to cyber attacks. Around two years ago, for example, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks were making headlines, and now ransomware has come into heightened focus. It's reasonable to believe that other types of attacks will emerge in another two years and continue to change thereafter.

The number of data breaches reported in the first 6 months of 2022 has put this year on track to be the lowest year of reports in the last 5 years for large US corporations. By looking at the rate at which data breach events have been reported so far this year, we predict that the number of events reported is expected to be 15-20% of the number of breaches reported in 2021

The 2022 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), the fifteenth such report in as many years, leads off with a startling statistic: Credentials are the number one overall attack vector hackers use in data breaches. Use of stolen credentials accounts for nearly half the breaches studied by Verizon, far ahead of phishing and exploit vulnerabilities, which account for 19% and 8% of attacks, respectively. Botnets, the fourth most common entry path for hackers, represent a mere 1% of attacks.
