Minerva is a resilient and secure cloud based platform that provides real time dynamic insight into security programs. Unencumbered by legacy infrastructure or legacy code, we have leveraged being born in the cloud to provide a highly scalable and performance driven architecture.
The Minerva platform is the implementation of our four step approach to solving problems that Cybersecurity leaders have chased for years.
Using innovation to address unsolved problems and underserved markets
The End of Consultative Captivity
Maturity assessments are a core component of most of the cyber consulting firms portfolios. In addition, organizations rely on maturity services to provide visibility into their performance and relative posture against peer organizations. Therein lies the issue.
Current assessment models only show snapshots of historical information up to the time a report is created. Traditional reports do not provide visibility over time and require the purchase of another assessment to track progress . While many cyber leaders are left frustrated with the result, these engagements remain a critical component of visibility in most cyber programs that can afford them.
The Minerva Platform provides a SaaS based alternative. Minerva is a real-time maturity platform built to measure and track your organization’s progress while identifying areas of risk optimization in a rapidly evolving threat landscape. There is simply no better way to demonstrate value, set organizational goals, and establish the standard of care.
business context and visualization unlock program performance and effective communication
Context Drives Optimization
Unfortunately, most organizations have vast amounts of operational data that means nothing to the stakeholders driving the business. While operationally relevant, without context the data carries little meaning and does not provide the insight needed to help guide effective business decisions.
The inability to translate these operational terms into meaningful business terms leaves most Cyber programs struggling to find effective ways of communicating value and alignment with the company goals.
The Minerva platforms context and visualization are guided by a highly credited and experienced advisory board from industry and academia. We have brought together the best in both business and cybersecurity to provide easily understood solution to the complex world of cybersecurity.
The ability to quantify risk has been called the holy grail for Chief Information Security Officers. In the journey to quantify risk, many have asserted that it is not possible to quantify risk due to the qualitative elements involved in risk such as reputation risk and the liability incurred as a result of a security event, or data leakage. The holy grail is not out of reach, but merely has been hidden from the security community in its battle against bad actors and the ever increasing number of threat vectors that are being addressed.
The Minerva Exposure Engine is a proprietary method that combines event notification and publicly traded stock prices to derive the value of security related events to companies. This unique view incorporates all quantitative and qualitative measures and can be applied to all organizations in the evaluation of their security posture.
Roadmap development remains an annual exercise aligned with budget cycles for most organizations. The exercise for most organizations relies on compliance findings, skilled security staff, and supplier promotion. These elements neglect two of the most critical components of any security program, stakeholder buy-in and organizational goal alignment.
The Minerva Roadmap Engine is focused on driving integration of cross functional stakeholders into the roadmap process. Stakeholders are identified and the core organizational goals are defined. Projects can be submitted for review by anyone in the identified organization. The projects are anonymously reviewed by the stakeholders against the defined criteria. The projects are then ranked dynamically and able to be viewed and communicated by the leadership team. The Minerva Platform drives the integration of the business units into the process.
