What other cyber risk company is willing to do that?
In 2015, Ryan Dodd (founder) was an institutional shareholder in companies whose data and software code was the primary source the companies’ value. Frustrated by corporate boards’ inability to clearly report to him and other shareholders on how their executives were managing and protecting their companies’ valuable data, he began creating financial models to help “hedge out cyber risk” in the fund portfolios. This model was the first step in creating Cyberhedge.
Drawing on Ryan’s 20 years in finance, including proprietary risk modeling in complex environments, derivative structuring and allocation of risk capital as a successful hedge fund manager, it took 2 years to develop the data platform powering Cyberhedge that now gives corporate boards and executives an instant cyber risk rating with significance—i.e. in monetary terms, and backed by market data—on which they can rely for more accurate business risk measurement, tracking and reporting.
We believe a cross-disciplinary approach differentiates the research driving our service.
Led by Founder and CEO, Ryan Dodd, Cyberhedge has expanding teams in Europe and the United States. Our team includes PhD’s in biological networks, experts in econometric modeling and seasoned policy wonks. To ensure we have a wider lens for asking the right questions about the economic impact of technology risks, our team also includes global financial professionals and risk managers. Together with our investment partners, we have a deep bench for insights from senior national security officials, cyber tech leaders and regulators. With our diverse backgrounds, we look at technology risk from multiple angles, helping to deliver a straight-forward analysis with richer context.
