Commenting on his appointment, Johnson said, “Cyber represents an existential risk to trust-based, digital organizations, and as cyber threats continue to grow in frequency and sophistication, managing cyber risk is critical. It is incumbent on all business risk executives and stakeholders – to include board directors, corporate and C-suite executives, business leaders, technologists, auditors, regulators, etc. – to assess, prioritize, and manage security risk. A contextual and real-time quantification of cyber risk is an absolute imperative to ensure proactive and predictive cybersecurity. I am excited to continue to help Safe Security standardize quantitative cyber risk management and communication for organizations around the world.”
