Boardish is a risk quantification tool specifically designed to communicate cyber ROI to decision-makers to streamline the IT & Cyber budgeting process. 

 

The TPF (Threat Protection Factor) is a unique metric in Boardish that allows you to measure efficiency of solutions rather than using a probability of threats methodology that doesn’t always provide accurate results for Zero-Day or unknown variables. 

 

Boardish is NOT a risk assessment tool – it works WITH risk assessment tools to bridge the gap between risk assessment reports and quantification/practical approval.

Boardish is free for a 14 day trial, after which you can cancel without paying anything. After 14 days if you don’t cancel, you’ll be charged for the plan you chose when you signed up. 


For more information on our plans and roadmap visit our Pricing page.

Boardish isn’t just designed for you to use for IT and cyber budgeting but helps IT professionals understand the type of answers they need for a full proposal and analysis. Not having all the answers is okay, it can help you start a conversation in your own organisation to get the answers you need and bring in all departments. 

If you discover a bug or you’re struggling to use Boardish first refresh the page you’re on as this often solves the problem. Then, if this doesn’t solve the problem, please contact us directly on [email protected] 

Within the Input Wizard in both the Threats and Solutions section there is a button where you can input your own custom threat or solution. This will then add it to the normal dropdown list. 

It is our recommendation that you only ‘disable’ the threats and solutions that you don’t want showing on your dashboard. Otherwise you’ll have to go through each stage of the input wizard deleting the relevant information. It’s quicker and more effective to disable, and then you can enable again in the future if necessary. 

Currently, Boardish only supports GDPR but other regulations will be added in our next update version. This is because the legal minefield is hard to quantify specifically for each situation and often has a lot of other factors involved. We would rather our algorithm is accurate without the regulation impact than inaccurate with multiple regulation options. 

We understand the importance of information security and do our best to keep your information secure. One of the ways we do this is to use OKTA as our authentication system so we don’t store your passwords.

 

We also use a dedicated token for each database access so that we can segregate and protect your information to the best of our ability.

 

On top of these we have mandatory MFA (multi-form authentication) for all accounts that are signed up.

When you log in to Boardish for the first time you’ll have to consent to our T&Cs. When you confirm, an Okta account will be created for you and Okta will log your email address and name. Okta cannot and will not be able to access your email account or see your emails. 

Boardish uses its own innovative methodology designed and adapted based on years of CISO experience quantifying cyber threats and solutions.

 

You can view our methodology by visiting: https://www.boardish.io/the-boardish-methodology-budget-approval-framework/ 

Signing up is completely free for the first 14 days so you’re welcome to sign up, add historical data to test and confirm the calculations before making a financial commitment.  

At present, information is stored in a US data centre, but we’re planning to roll out to Europe in 2021 as well.
