Evaluate. Optimize. Improve.


Whether you are regrouping after a previous cyber attack or looking to prevent or detect one from
occurring, there are some key cyber risk questions you need to ask.

What are my top five cyber risks?
Am I getting the most business value for my cyber risk management dollars?
Do my executives understand our cybersecurity plans?
Does everyone at work know how to mitigate our top cyber risks?
What do I tell our clients when they ask, “What are you doing about cybersecurity?”

Having trouble answering? We can help.


Just because you don’t know the answers or your answers are not up to par, that doesn’t mean all is lost. A good Cyber Risk Managed Program can help identify internal problems and improve processes moving forward.

Too many companies banish their cyber risk management strategies to the IT department. They treat cybercrime as purely a “tech” issue, even though cyber risk can hurt your business’ finances and reputation. Our practical and effective cyber risk strategies will help you think about and measure cybersecurity differently. You will learn to measure every facet of cybersecurity including people, process, management, AND technology across every department in your company.

A New Way of Thinking about Cybersecurity

Cyber As Business Risk

In today’s digital world, business owners and corporate executives need to understand and manage cyber as a business risk, not just a technology risk.

Business Value Lens

Our strategic advisory services help executives navigate the confusing world of cyber risk management through a simplified, but effective, business value lens.

Cyber Risk Managed Program

Using the Business Value Model above, our approach to cyber risk helps executives understand the full value of their spend.

Turn Cyber Risk Management into a Competitive Advantage


Most of the time, when executives mention cyber risk, they’re talking about a potential crisis, an actual crisis or a crisis narrowly averted. ‘Cyber Risk’ isn’t normally associated with positive outcomes. We get that.

But cyber risk doesn’t need to be ALL downside.

Think about it. If your major competitor is struggling with the economic and legal fallout from a cyber attack, you can keep going at full speed, and that presents a clear competitive advantage.

Unfortunately, executives are commonly presented with a ‘rock and a hard place’ choice when it comes to determining their firm’s cyber risk priorities. Simple and impotent (high/medium/low grids) or complex and convoluted (statistical probabilities). Neither option is particularly effective, and both consume time and energy. There are few practical, middle ground strategies that treat cyber risk as a business issue, rather than a tech problem.

At Cyber Risk Opportunities, we want to change that. Are you ready to start capitalizing on your cyber risk opportunity? Schedule a call now.

Cybersecurity is not my area of expertise. Fortunately for the organization and me, CRO was able to walk us through a systematic process to be both effective and efficient to ensure we adequately assess risks and protect our customer information. Through his work and guidance, we have implemented policy and procedures that enhance cybersecurity for the people we serve. He took the time to understand our organizational needs, our (my) limited IT experience to create a cyber risk plan and system that works.
