    One thought on “How to Measure Anything in Cybersecurity Risk”

    1. First, this was just a good read on how to get started on quantifying and managing information security risk. If your organization needs some improvement in this area, start here.Secondly, apparently I'm late to the game because this book is now on a dozen desks in my office and nobody told me it was all the rage!

    2. The book mostly repeats the message of How to Measure Anything: Finding the Value of Intangibles in Business - now with cybersecurity focus. The authors show how statistical methods help to bring understanding in cybersecurity even when the historical data is not available. Very interesting information and models, which could help in cysbersecurity management. This book makes you seriously doubt current defacto risk analysis frameworks.

    3. This didn't give me many new insights from the original "How to measure anything" However, the cyber examples were of value. I gave the first HTMA 5 stars. Without having read the first HTMA, I would rate this 4 or 5 stars.

    4. Everyone working in software should read this book to get a good idea of how to think about risk not only around security but also other aspects of software engineering.
