Navigating the Cybersecurity Landscape with 'The Risk Business'
In the ever-evolving world of enterprise security, finding the right approach can often feel like navigating through a maze. Traditional methods have leaned heavily on threat-based or compliance-based approaches, but these often leave organizations grappling with a delicate balance between technical tools and practical outcomes.
Enter "The Risk Business: What Leaders Need to Know About Intelligence and Risk-Based Security," a groundbreaking book by Levi Gundert, Chief Security Officer at Recorded Future.

Aimed at security professionals looking to up-level executive buy-in on cybersecurity within their organizations, this second edition emphasizes the importance of communicating intelligence to decision-makers in a language they understand - the language of risk.
The book introduces innovative concepts like the Intelligence to Risk (I2R) Pyramid and the taxonomy of the five leading types of risk impact. It emphasizes the importance of second-order thinking for effective intelligence assessments and provides leaders with a decision advantage in a complex, rapidly shifting cyber threat landscape.
