Cyber Risk Quantification: The Quest for TransparencyBitSight's Stephen Boyer Says Regulations Are Driving Better Board-Level Awareness
How can companies make their cybersecurity posture more transparent to stakeholders? That's a question being asked by both boards of directors and potential investors, says Stephen Boyer, founder and CTO of BitSight.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Boyer also discusses:
- Working with Moody's Analytics to better detail cyber risk;
- Investors' quest for cyber risk quantification;
- The impact of new regulations and guidance from agencies such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Boyer co-founded BitSight in 2011 and leads the company's technology program. He previously served as president and co-founder of Saperix, which was acquired by FireMon in 2011. Prior to that, while at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Boyer was a member of the Cyber Systems and Technology Group, where he led research and development programs solving large-scale national cybersecurity problems. Before MIT, he worked at Caldera Systems, an early Linux startup.
