Gartner®: Hype Cycle™ for Cyber Risk Management

Regulatory changes, ransomware, cyber attacks, and data breaches have transformed cyber risk in organizations.

This Hype Cycle demonstrates the need for organizations, including critical infrastructure operators, to respond, restructure and rebalance their approach to cyber risk management.

Organizations are evolving their cyber risk management programs by:

  • Adapting risk identification and evaluation efforts to match the changing ways in which cyber risk is manifested due to rapid changes in technology, business and threat landscapes.

  • Adopting agile exposure management and risk management techniques to support the digitization of business processes.

  • Bringing balance to technology adoption and a cybersecurity-related friction reduction.
