The company

C-Risk was started in 2016 when the co-founders realized that communication and decision making about technology risk between business stakeholders, IT teams and cyber security experts was often ineffective.

C-Risk provide solutions to quantify information security and technology risk in financial terms to improve decision making and communication.

We help organisations understand information risk in business terms, decide how to prioritize investments to improve cyber resilience and information security compliance.

Our expertise in quantifying cyber risk is based on the FAIR™ standard. In 2017, C-Risk’s founders launched the European chapter of the FAIR Institute to promote the standard.

C-Risk provides the following set of solutions: to help its clients on their Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ) journey:

  • CRQ Enablement services to kickstart internal programs
  • CRQ as a managed service (definition of main risk scenarios, financial impact and controls that help reduce those risks)
  • CRQ Consulting services
  • Training services – from an Executive brief on Cyber Risk to full training on the FAIR™ standard taxonomy and methodology.

At the end of 2022, C-Risk closed a seed round of funding to accelerate its growth in the enterprise market and develop new offers targeted at mid-sized companies.
