A basic cyber risk matrix
Cyber risk comes in various shapes and sizes.
What it looks like influences how you prepare.
- Likely and high impact: Fix this now. Deploy changes and hunt down threats.
- Likely and low impact: Focus on prevention. Manage risks, inventory assets, and model threats. You want to be systematic.
- Unlikely and high impact: Focus on recovery. Have a contingency plan, build redundant systems, and train people. You want to be ready.
- Unlikely and low impact: Follow best practices. Stay vigilant. Remember that small things add up.
You control likelihood by making sure it doesn't happen. And you control impact by being ready to adapt.
