Preparing For Your Cyber Risk Interview

When we “measure and score” customers’ cyber risks, we ask their experts to respond to each of our questions using a numeric scale from zero to ten.

If you have received an invitation to speak with us, then you are an expert on how well your company manages certain cyber risks. This short video and the graphic below will help you get ready in less than ten minutes.

This video (3:30) explains how our “Zero to Ten” scale works.

Now, we want to give you some insight into how you will use the “Zero to Ten” scale to answer the cyber risk questions.

We’ll be asking you a series of questions. Each one will begin with “How well does your organization…?”

Here’s an example:

How well does your organization enforce cybersecurity roles and responsibilities for the entire workforce?

Here’s the score key you’ll use to choose the score that best represents your past, and expected experience, over six to twelve months.

Here’s how it works: After hearing each question, you will read each statement in the first column, starting in row two. When you read a statement that matches your experience, tell us the number in the right column. You are free to choose any number between zero and ten.

For example, in your experience, if your organization consistently enforces cybersecurity roles and responsibilities for the entire workforce, then you would choose a score of 5 after reading the statements for 0 and 3.

OK, your prep work is done. Thanks for your time. We’ll see you at the interview!
