IRIS 2022 Cyentia


The Information Risk Insights Study (IRIS) is a research series dedicated to clearing away the fog of FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) that has clouded cyber risk decisions for far too long. Each report leverages real-world data and rigorous analysis focused on key aspects and challenges of managing cyber risk.

We’re extremely excited to be able to share the IRIS 2022 with you. There’s a stigma that sequels are rarely better than the original, but we’ve worked hard to improve this edition in every way. We examine more data than ever, our analytical techniques have matured, and we’ve greatly enriched the data to yield insights that would have been impossible two years ago.

Come join us as we focus the IRIS on 77K cyber events resulting in $57 billion in total reported financial losses and 72 billion data records compromised over the last decade.

The Cyentia Institute wishes to acknowledge and thank the Cybersecurity Division and the Office of the Chief Economist at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for sponsoring this study. It is our sincere hope that this research will lead to better cyber risk assessments and cyber risk reduction decisions for years to come.
