Apply scientific rigor to your measurement practices for better decisions

Evaluate and improve your company's risk management practices

Used in the curriculum for the Department of Defense CISO program at Carnegie Mellon University, The Society of Actuaries Exam Prep, and numerous universities across the country, How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk offers a series of techniques that every cyber security professional should learn. 


A guide to robust protection through quantitative processes, approaches, and techniques.

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.
