The World Risk Register

ASTRA & Cyber

As a strategic risk advisory company, Sibylline provides our clients with a range of products that seek to perform complementary functions, meeting the clients individual and specific needs. Our work seeks to outline, analyse and assess events and trends, strengthening our client’s understanding of inclusive politics, political processes and accountability (1).

The World Risk Register that comprises our core service achieves this through the production and distribution of daily, weekly, monthly and annual analysis, plus regular briefings, podcasts and webinars that pertain to regional and global trends outlined annually. Your subscription also includes direct 1 to 1 access to our senior analysts.

These trends tackle kinetic security issues and address the evolution of physical threats along with the impact of governance issues and the challenge of opaque regulatory environments. Our World Risk Register service is complimented by the production of specific reports or projects tailored to individual clients’ intelligence requirements.

Cyber:

We fundamentally see cyber issues as an extension of geopolitical risk, and treat cyber threats as simply another vector. Our cyber service is pitched at the strategic level and is intended to fit cyber issues into the broader context of global risk. For all readers, we write in plain terms that are understandable without a deep background in either technical affairs or geopolitics. The service is made up of a top down series of reports covering strategic to more granular level issues

The service is underpinned by Cyber ASTRA which numerically risk rates every country in the world according to a number of cyber risks. The data is then used in a variety of different ways:

It provides the quantitative component to all of our qualitative analysis.  

It can be used to create graphics to further define risk levels at a glance.

It is used to create country cards to provide a one page overview of cyber risks in a country.

The scores can be offered as a bespoke service to you, with categories and individual risks weighted to reflect your own concerns and exposure, thereby manipulating the figures to give a truer risk level to you. The tailored cyber ASTRA scores can then be mapped to your own mitigations globally in order to identify gaps where you may be exposed, or overspending.
