The Boardish Methodology

Budget Approval Framework

The current IT & cyber budget approval process is broken...

It’s no longer good enough to take 6 months for budget approvals and leave huge exposure gaps for organizations. 

Follow the Boardish framework instead for: 

  • Faster approvals
  • To make the whole process more accessible for decision-making.
  • Demonstrate ROI of security spend.
  • Show cybersecurity and IT risks and solutions in financial exposure and mitigation.
IT and Cyber budget approval process

The Current Challenge...

Right now IT and Cyber speak in technological terms whilst decision-makers speak in risk and financials. That’s why budget approvals and proposals take so long to get approved! Boardish quantifies the technological into the decision-maker language to speed up decision-making, improve business responsiveness, help you mitigate risks, and ultimately get budget or proposal approval.

What our users say...

"Before [Boardish] we were unable to demonstrate the ROI of security spend with spreadsheets, numbers, and emails. After, with the financial metrics displayed we were able to get the approval to go forward with Boardish."​
Ross M, Security Consultant, Passageway
"We used the dashboard to show the exact financial sum of exposure we were trying to mitigate with our project proposal which helped us get the board onside. The comparison and filters were also useful when they wanted to delve deeper and outline exactly where the exposure was coming from."​

Creating Simplicity & Decision-Making From Complex Cyber Security Quantification

You Control The Effectiveness of Your Solutions

Measure Multiple Solution Effectiveness in Two Environments using your company-specific knowledge (on-prem/cloud)

One of the unique elements of Boardish is the TPF algorithm that allows you to weigh up the effectiveness of a solution at mitigating threats in the cloud and on-prem. You can do this for multiple solutions of the same threat to find your perfect mitigation combination.

This section is manual which means you can run simulations with effectiveness giving you complete control over the solutions and quantification, keeping the human in control. 

See a Snapshot of Your Organisation's Threats & Solutions Right Now

Capture and maintain security posture as it stands right now, rather than predictive for the future giving you immediate figures to work with. 

Your overall security status will fluctuate based on ever-changing cyber threats. Take a snapshot of your organisation and it’s security posture right now, and then easily update and monitor it in the future! 

See The Results That Are Important To You Using The Filters

Regulation loss, salary loss, sales loss, and market loss are all available. 

Give decision-makers and the board the custom results they ask for by being able to focus on one area at a time. For DPOs this could be regulation loss, for CMO this could be market loss, or you can bring it all together to share. 

Give Accurate Solution Costs That Include 'Time Spent'

Quantify The FULL Costs of Solutions By Assigning Your Experts

Solutions aren’t just the cost of software or hardware, or even per user licenses. They are the time, effort, and energy you put into implementing them over the course of the project. Plus you can include yearly maintenance figures and multiple ‘experts’ in the cost too for the most accurate figures.
