SPOKANE, Wash. & BANGALORE, India–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/CRQ?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#CRQlt;/agt;–Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global
information technology, consulting and business process services
company, and RiskLens, the leading provider of cyber risk quantification
(CRQ) software and cyber risk management solutions, today announced a
partnership to deliver quantitative cyber risk assessments to enterprise
customers and government organizations.

As part of the agreement, Wipro will leverage RiskLens’ CRQ platform to
perform quantitative risk analysis, measure the effectiveness of
cybersecurity controls and provide the rationale for adequate
cybersecurity investments.

The RiskLens CRQ platform is the only application based on the Factor

(CRS) division will offer FAIR methodology based risk analysis through
the RiskLens platform and aid organizations in the development of cyber
risk quantification programs along with its extensive practice in risk
intelligence, integrated threat management and security management
services. Several members of the Wipro CRS team will be trained and
certified as FAIR risk analysts through the FAIR Institute, the
non-profit expert organization that promotes education on FAIR and
sharing of best practices.

Nick Sanna, CEO, RiskLens, commented that, “After many
devastating cybersecurity attacks on global companies, the realization
that cyber risk equals business risk has been brought home to senior
management and boards of directors, who are now demanding a quantitative
accounting of the loss exposure their companies face. FAIR analysis and
the RiskLens CRQ platform answer their questions in definitive terms.
For Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and their teams, this
cyber risk quantification enables better decision-making from the
strategic to day-to-day levels and finally aligns security operations to
the needs of the business. Our partnership with Wipro expands our reach
across the world, and we are delighted to work with a company of such
stature and global reach to spread the benefits of cyber risk
quantification through the RiskLens CRQ platform.”

Sheetal Mehta, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Cybersecurity &
Risk Services, Wipro Limited,
added, “Wipro strives to deliver value
and derive the most for our clients with regard to their security
investments. Through this partnership, we look forward to maximum risk
