Advancing Cyber Resilience

Cyber risk has gone from being barely mentioned by CEOs and government leaders to becoming one of the first, if not the first question executives ask about the state of an enterprise. This is because large scale breaches have continually made headlines and caused the downfall of executives over the past several years.
This initiative was launched in 2012 in response to the growing importance of cybersecurity. More than 100 organizations are now actively involved. The project’s current phase focuses on quantifying the impact of cyberthreats and creating industry-wide risk assessment models that will allow leaders to ask more sophisticated questions about the threats most relevant to their own industry. This is a vital component to the risk normalization that must occur in order for business leaders and regulators to make informed decisions about what steps they should take to make the economy and society more resilient to cyber risks. The project will also broaden the current dialogue, centered around information security, to examine the new risks represented by networked technologies, including the internet of things.


The project is tasked with enabling the digital economy to grow and thrive in the face of determined cyber-attacks. Its specific aims are to:

  • Highlight cyber-resilience as a strategic focus for the leadership agenda
  • Develop approaches towards measurement and quantification of cyber threats
  • Create  industry-specific cyber risk models, which will allow industries to more clearly understand the actual risks they face
  • Facilitate dialogue across different sectors, industries and regions on the key issues of cyber resilience (including information sharing, protection of critical infrastructure, and policy development)
