Fulton, MD ‒ May 24, 2021 ‒ SightGain, the only cybersecurity risk management platform that tests and analyzes organizational readiness across people, processes and technology – has launched an Advisory Board comprised of business leaders and cybersecurity experts.

“I am very excited be building an accomplished team of advisors,” said Christian Sorenson, CEO at SightGain. “We believe that the SightGain Readiness Platform brings a transformational for ensuring cybersecurity readiness and reducing financial risk. Having outside points of view, based decades of successful experience are essential for guiding the company forward. Our advisors will play a critical role in our decision making.

SightGain is the only risk management solution focused on cybersecurity readiness. Unlike typical cybersecurity risk management solutions that estimate readiness using industry benchmark data and compliance checklists, SightGain tests and measures readiness using real-world attack simulations in a customer’s live environment. These results are used to make improvements across cybersecurity people, process, and technology. Once current readiness is tuned, SightGain combines empiric readiness data with business information and threat intelligence to build the business case to prioritize long term investments.
