The Probity Group


Probity helps Corporate Executives and Public Officials quantify the enterprise/national impact of cyber risk.

CEO’s Cyber Risk Dilemma:

80% of cyber-crime may be managed by responsible IT hygiene.

But how do we cope with systemic risks and exploitable vulnerabilities - from nation states or organized crime - which present high-impact enterprise consequences:

  • Affecting financial statements and SEC filings.
  • Eroding shareholder, donor and public confidence.
  • Inciting legal and regulatory action.

(How) can we quantify consequences to allocate resources commensurate with exposure?


Agency Director’s Cyber Risk Dilemma:

Mission critical systems have become complex cyber systems-of-systems, which give rise to  new systemic risks and exploitable vulnerabilities.

The sophistication and frequency of APTs strain the financial, human and technical resources needed for prompt detection and response.


That changes everything.


(How) can we triage risk from financial, political and mission consequences, to focus limited resources on the most impactful incidents?


What We Do
