DeNexus Launches New Risk Platform

DeNexus has announced the launch of DeRISK 5.0 Platform, a new version of its evidence-based, data-driven cyber risk quantification and management tool that aims to help risk owners – industrial organizations, underwriters, reinsurers, and insurance-linked securities (ILS) investors – better understand, mitigate and transfer the risks associated with cyber breaches.

DeRISK 5.0 offers a uniquely integrated set of data from external sources and from the organization’s internal OT (Operational Technology) infrastructure. This enables executives to make reliably informed cyber risk management decisions and allocate cyber resources more effectively, based on credible data. In addition, DeRISK 5.0’s new intuitive user interface makes it easy to extract actionable cyber risk insight.

“DeNexus represents the second generation of cyber modelers; using data from inside a client’s network contextualized with the underlying industrial process and the business layer gives specific insight about risk exposures and their management,” said Jose Seara, Founder and CEO of DeNexus. “The second generation also understands the need for differentiation of type of cyber risk, whilst the first generation of cyber modelers was non-specific and took a ‘one size fits all’ approach.”

DeRISK is the platform which goes inside the large industrial facilities leveraging telemetry to gather data. It calculates the facility owner’s financial exposure to cyber risk and provides them with risk mitigation strategies, using broadly implemented cyber security frameworks.

Renewal energy company, EDF Renewables, has been an early adopter of the DeRISK platform. Jonathan Alexander, Cybersecurity Director, commented:

“The DeNexus software acts as a bridge between the cybersecurity team and the executive leadership group, as it allows me to quantify risk with defendable probabilities, event loss amounts, risk reduction metrics, and ROIs. My executive group can set its risk tolerance and the cybersecurity team can deliver the risk reduction remediation needed to hit that target.”
