Publisher's Summary

A ground shaking exposé on the failure of popular cyber risk management methods.

How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk exposes the shortcomings of current "risk management" practices, and offers a series of improvement techniques that help you fill the holes and ramp up security. In his best-selling book How to Measure Anything, author Douglas W. Hubbard opened the business world's eyes to the critical need for better measurement. This book expands upon that premise and draws from The Failure of Risk Management to sound the alarm in the cybersecurity realm. Some of the field's premier risk management approaches actually create more risk than they mitigate, and questionable methods have been duplicated across industries and embedded in the products accepted as gospel. This book sheds light on these blatant risks and provides alternate techniques that can help improve your current situation. You'll also learn which approaches are too risky to save and are actually more damaging than a total lack of any security. Dangerous risk management methods abound; there is no industry more critically in need of solutions than cybersecurity. This book provides solutions where they exist, and advises when to change tracks entirely.

  • Discover the shortcomings of cybersecurity's "best practices"
  • Learn which risk management approaches actually create risk
  • Improve your current practices with practical alterations
  • Learn which methods are beyond saving, and worse than doing nothing

Insightful and enlightening, this book will inspire a closer examination of your company's own risk management practices in the context of cybersecurity. The end goal is airtight data protection, so finding cracks in the vault is a positive thing - as long as you get there before the bad guys do. How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk is your guide to more robust protection through better quantitative processes, approaches, and techniques.

    "Not appropriate for audio, buy a hard copy instead"
    Would you try another book from Douglas W. Hubbard and Richard Seiersen and/or Patrick Cronin?

    Yes, it was obvious that they knew their stuff


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book, I wish I could return it for a hard copy. This book is well done but really hard to follow as an audio book, which is how I bought it. Audible says I can't return it.

    "Great book to understand Cybersecurity Risk"

    Cybersecurity risk needs to adopt a quantitative risk metric driven approach. This book will help you understand why and walk you through some of the methods. It has a very applied hands on approach with links to downloadable spreadsheets.
