You can view the findings in the Threat Intel control.

4. Out-of-the-box (OOTB) Risk Scenario Library

We've made all Risk Scenarios fully FAIR-compliant. We've added a few additional attributes and refined the definition of Risk Scenarios to generate Likelihood, Loss Magnitude, and Annualized Loss outputs. One significant feature is the Out-of-the-box (OOTB) Risk Scenario Library, which is now an integral part of SAFE and built upon the FAIR methodology. This library offers a wide range of pre-defined Risk Scenarios to expedite your risk assessment process.

5. BYOR: Build your Own Risk Scenario

We are introducing a new process for the creation and management of Risk Scenarios in SAFE, empowering users to align their risk assessment with the FAIR methodology. This release allows the definition of multiple Risk Scenarios based on selected Business Resources, Threat Actors, Attack Outcomes, and Initial Attack Methods on a per-group basis. 

We are introducing a 5-step, wizard-based, custom Risk Scenario creation process. This intuitive and user-friendly workflow simplifies the process as follows:

  1. Select Group: Choose the group to which the scenario belongs.
  2. Review Business Resource: Identify the relevant business resource for the scenario.
  3. Select Threat Actor: Define the threat actor involved in the scenario.
  4. Select Attack Outcome and Initial Attack Method: Specify the attacker behaviors related to the scenario.
  5. Review and Create the Scenario: After completing the previous steps, review your selections and create the scenario.


6. Model risk scenarios for business units or application groups 

With the goal of providing a more comprehensive business context from a risk perspective, we have introduced the concept of building Groups. This release empowers our users to define groups based on their business requirements. A Group can reflect any entity such as a business unit, a division, a department, a data center, or an application. Business context and control assessment attached to the Group is then used to model risk scenarios on top of it. 

Here's what you can expect:

  • Wizard-Based Group Creation: Create groups with ease through our intuitive, 4-step wizard. This streamlined workflow simplifies the process and ensures we capture all necessary information for risk estimation.
  • Group Metadata: When creating a group, you define group details that include, Name, Description, Firmographic Details (Industry, country, revenue, employee count, Internet-facing), Group Type (Smart, Static, or No Asset groups), and select the applicable Questionnaire. Firmographic data for groups are a snapshot of the enterprise group and can easily be modified.
  • Group Types: There are 3 distinct approaches for creating a group, each tailored to different needs. These group types enable you to seamlessly connect technology assets or people with the appropriate groups.
    • Smart Group: A group that the platform continuously updates by automatically associating technology assets and/or people based on specific filters you define, simplifying the grouping process and ensuring automatic updates.
    • Static Group: You manually specify the exact technology assets and/or people by applying filters.
    • No Assets Group: The No Asset Group proves beneficial when you lack information about assets for inclusion in a group but intend to model a Risk scenario. This group type enables you to select the Attack Surface Type from predefined options like Applications, Cloud, End-points, SaaS, etc. Users can later convert this group into Smart Groups once they activate integrations or receive assets with smart tags, allowing them to create more advanced and dynamic Smart Groups.


  • Questionnaire Association at Group Level: The Financial Impact Questionnaire is used to calibrate drivers for loss magnitude calculation. NIST CSF Questionnaire assessment can aid in conducting the security control assessment. 

7. Understanding and Tuning Likelihood Factors

  • Control Maturity: Control maturity indicates the level of capability, coverage, and reliability of cybersecurity controls within an organization. The maturity of controls is typically assessed in various dimensions, including:
    • Capability: This aspect evaluates the efficiency of implementing each control. It is often classified into maturity levels such as M0 (Not Implemented), M1 (Foundation), M2 (Advance), and M3 (Expert). A higher maturity level indicates a more advanced and proactive approach to control implementation.
    • Coverage: Coverage refers to the extent to which each control is implemented across the organization. It is measured as a percentage and classified into maturity levels, such as M0 (Not Implemented), M1 (Basic Coverage), M2 (Advance Coverage), and M3 (Comprehensive Coverage). Higher coverage maturity implies a more thorough implementation of controls across the digital landscape.
    • Reliability: Reliability assesses how systematically and regularly the effectiveness of controls is validated. It is categorized into maturity levels, with M0 (Not Implemented) indicating no regular assessment and M1, M2, and M3 representing increasing levels of reliability maturity. Higher reliability maturity ensures that security measures remain robust and effective over time.
