Solving Cyber Risk. Protecting Your Company and Society

The non-technical handbook for cyber security risk management Solving Cyber Risk distills a decade of research into a practical framework for cyber security. Blending statistical data and cost information with research into the culture, psychology, and business models of the hacker community, this book provides business executives, policy-makers, and individuals with a deeper understanding of existing future threats, and an action plan for safeguarding their organizations. Key Risk Indicators reveal vulnerabilities based on organization type, IT infrastructure and existing security measures, while expert discussion from leading cyber risk specialists details practical, real-world methods of risk reduction and mitigation. By the nature of the business, your organization’s customer database is packed with highly sensitive information that is essentially hacker-bait, and even a minor flaw in security protocol could spell disaster. This book takes you deep into the cyber threat landscape to show you how to keep your data secure. Understand who is carrying out cyber-attacks, and why Identify your organization’s risk of attack and vulnerability to damage Learn the most cost-effective risk reduction measures Adopt a new cyber risk assessment and quantification framework based on techniques used by the insurance industry By applying risk management principles to cyber security, non-technical leadership gains a greater understanding of the types of threat, level of threat, and level of investment needed to fortify the organization against attack. Just because you have not been hit does not mean your data is safe, and hackers rely on their targets’ complacence to help maximize their haul. Solving Cyber Risk gives you a concrete action plan for implementing top-notch preventative measures before you’re forced to implement damage control.

Andrew Coburn

Andrew William Coburn (born 1956 in Chester, England) is a well-known expert of catastrophe modeling. He is Vice President of catastrophe research and Director of terrorism research at Risk Management Solutions.

Professional life

After training in architecture at Christ's College at the University of Cambridge, Andrew Coburn completed a PhD thesis in July 1987 on "Seismic vulnerability and risk reduction strategies for housing in Eastern Turkey". He worked extensively with Robin Spence, currently President of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering, on analysing earthquake risks and the effects of seismic activity on the built environment.

Since the 1980s, Coburn has studied many natural and man-made catastrophe events, including earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami, terrorist attacks, and disease pandemics.

He has taken part in 15 earthquake field damage surveys, including:

*Irpinia in Italy, 1980
*the Spitak in Armenia, 1988
*Mexico City, 1985
*Erzurum-Kars in Turkey, 1983
*San‘ā’( _ar. صنعاء) in Yemen, 1982
*Luzon, Philippines, 1990
*Gujarat in India, 2001
*Kobe in Japan, 1995.

He attended New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, 2005.

His research work has included investigations into human casualties in natural catastrophes, disease pandemics and terrorist attacks. He has held visiting research fellowships at Hokkaido University in Japan, Virginia Polytechnic Institute in Washington DC, U.S. and the University of Naples, Italy.

In 1987 Coburn was one of the founders of Cambridge Architectural Research, an independent architectural consultancy in Cambridge, England, providing consulting advice to the construction and development industries. A subsidiary, CARtograph Ltd., was established to model risk and develop building and engineering strategies to protect buildings from seismic activity. CARtograph attracted investment funding and in 1997 was merged with RMS. In 2002, Coburn moved to California - where he stayed until 2005 - to develop the risk analysis division of RMS.

Coburn is a leading expert on terrorism and has worked closely with the RAND Center for Terrorism Risk Management Policy, and the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence, University of St Andrews, Scotland. He has pioneered leading risk models for natural and man-made catastrophes in the following categories: terrorism, pandemic influenza, earthquake, volcanic eruption, flood, tsunami, hurricane, and wildfire.

Most recently, he has developed a controversial risk insurance model for pandemic influenza which demonstrates that the loss of life and financial loss of a major pandemic have been underestimated by many governments and corporate bodies.

Personal life

Andrew Coburn has one brother, Nick. He attended King's School, Chester and sang in Chester Cathedral Choir. He married Helen Mulligan in 1987; they have a son and a daughter. They live near Cambridge, England.
