A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11909757B2) outlines a method for assessing cybersecurity risks in a computer network. The method involves receiving input data on operational characteristics of the network at different times, using a risk model to determine cybersecurity risk parameters based on this data, and generating risk score trend data. Additionally, the method includes analyzing operational characteristics modified by a configuration file to forecast cybersecurity controls, monitoring data feeds for threat alerts, and transmitting risk scores to a client portal. The risk model incorporates modules for threat likelihood, business impact, and control effectiveness, allowing for a comprehensive evaluation of cybersecurity risks.

Furthermore, the patent describes a system that includes a processor and memory storing instructions for executing the method outlined above. The system is designed to receive input data on network characteristics, determine cybersecurity risk parameters using a risk model, generate risk score trend data, and monitor data feeds for threat alerts. Notably, the system is configured to implement proactive measures in response to threat alerts, showcasing a dynamic approach to cybersecurity risk management. Overall, the patented method and system offer a structured and comprehensive framework for assessing and mitigating cybersecurity risks in computer networks, providing valuable insights for enhancing network security and resilience.
