Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ)

Cyber Risk Quantification (CRQ) allows a security organization to quantify cyber risk in monetary terms that resonates with business leaders, CFO, CEO and board members. Calculating cyber risk in monetary terms provides a common language that can be used to prioritize projects and spending, and track the overall effectiveness of a cybersecurity program.

Please join us as we explore the cutting-edge world of CRQ and the transformative role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) within it. AI and ML are revolutionizing how organizations measure and assess the potential financial impact of cybersecurity threats, enabling better decision-making and prioritization of risk mitigation efforts.

Speaker Topic Submission Form


 Title:   Dealing with a stubborn small company


Presenter:  Susie Gilson



How do you create incremental serial numbers when a small company refuses to let go of their “sticky note” ways? Can creating related records in another table be automated?




After 23 years of developing and using many database applications for her various roles with Girl Scouts, Susie is retiring in June 2023. She also "fixes" the databases her husband brings home from work. Susie chides him on using outdated and complex Excel files and converts those to Access for him, also.


Q&A Session:

Bring your Access questions for the group to answer, explore or brainstorm ideas.

Security of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)

A foundational element of innovation in today’s app-driven world is the Application Programming Interface (API). From banks, retail and transportation to IoT, autonomous vehicles and smart cities, APIs are a critical part of modern mobile, SaaS and web applications. By nature, APIs expose application logic and sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and because of this have increasingly become a target for attackers. Without secure APIs, rapid innovation would be impossible. API Security focuses on strategies and solutions to understand and mitigate the unique vulnerabilities and security risks of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Please joins us as we hold an open discussion on the security of API:

  • What is API Security?
  • What are the most common API security risks?
  • What is API Sprawl?
  • How are attackers abusing APIs?
  • What are different API protection approaches?
  • Is there API Governance that should be followed?
