I have 35 years of experience in network design and security. I got involved in risk quantification because a client (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) requested it. This was a challenge. There is extraordinarily little published on the subject written from the cybersecurity professional's perspective. Although there is a published standard there are no tools available. To solve this problem, I hired a mathematician and built the tools I needed to support my client.
I realized; this really should not be this difficult. Why don't we have quality tools and training for cyber professionals to do this important work?
That is when I decided to democratize cybersecurity risk quantification.
I'm pleased to tell you that I am an Adjunct Professor at Boise State University and I'm developing a 3-credit hour course "Cybersecurity Risk Quantification" for undergraduate and graduate students. The course will be available in January of 2024.
The video training and tools are being released under a Creative Commons License and will be available for other Schools, Community Colleges, and Universities to add to their curriculums.
