Risk quantification defines an IT security risk’s impact on the business in terms of a dollar value. This enables CISOs to speak to business executives in a familiar language, which can significantly facilitate the process of obtaining necessary support for InfoSec investment. Yet, while risk quantification empowers businesses to proactively manage risks, protect valuable assets, and maintain a competitive edge in an ever-evolving risk landscape, few InfoSec teams successfully achieve it.

It also explains why every moment without risk quantification is a missed opportunity to safeguard your organization’s future — and highlights steps InfoSec professionals can take to get started.
