This report forms part of our Cyber Risk Register (CRR), a sister product to Sibylline’s core strategic risk advisory service, the World Risk Register (WRR). It comprises a suite of analytical products covering political, economic, criminal and activist-motivated cyber threats and can be subscribed to alongside or independently of WRR. The CRR service is underpinned by Cyber ASTRA, a database that gives numerical risk ratings to every country in the world according to several threat categories. This is designed to support clients in quantifying cyber risks across their portfolio of interests, monitor trends and make comparisons between countries. Sibylline’s cyber service is focused on understanding the human and institutional agency behind cyber threats, including geopolitical and military rivalries, commercial and activist agendas and the nexus between criminality, terrorism and business. By treating cyber as a vector within this broader threat landscape we seek to help our clients in mainstreaming cyber risk management.
