In recognition of Resilience's leadership, CEO Vishaal "V8" Hariprasad leads panel on combating global cyber crime initiatives in Geneva, and joining world leaders at the Annual Forum in Davos

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Resilience, the next-generation company for assessing and managing cyber risk, was invited to join the World Economic Forum's Global Innovators Community supporting their Annual Meeting on Cybersecurity in Geneva on November 15th and at the Davos Annual Meeting on January 16th, 2023. The invitation to join the Forum comes as Resilience expands its global footprint into the U.K., E.U., and Canada this year after successfully launching in the U.S in 2020.

As companies continue to accelerate their investment in digital transformation, losses from cybercrime are expected to significantly outpace investment in cybersecurity and the cost of cyber insurance. Global cybercrime costs are estimated to reach a staggering $10.5 trillion?by 2025, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. This is supported by survey data from the World Economic Forum's Global Cybersecurity Outlook 2022 report that found, "only 19% of cyber leaders feel confident that their organizations are cyber resilient," and 81% of respondents said that "staying ahead of attackers is a constant battle and the cost is unsustainable."

Resilience believes that companies can't just be cyber covered or cyber secure; they need to be cyber resilient. To do this, risk managers, cybersecurity experts, and financial leaders at a company must break their silos to assess and manage cyber risk holistically.

"It is an honor to join this group of esteemed political, business, and cultural leaders in shaping the agenda for how our society addresses growing cyber threats," said Resilience CEO and Co-founder Vishaal "V8" Hariprasad. "Resilience joining as part of the World Economic Forum's Global Innovators community is a great step toward our mission of making the world Cyber Resilient. We look forward to sharing our perspective on assessing and managing cyber risk with this esteemed network of start-ups, scale-ups, and global enterprises."

As a current cyber operations officer in the U.S. Air Force Reserves and member of the Ransomware Task Force, Hariprasad led the WEF's educational session on "Cybercrime: Staying Ahead of the Curve." The session leaders discussed scalable approaches to sharing actionable intelligence and staying ahead of bad actors as their tactics grow more technologically advanced, complex, and malicious. This session was held in advance of the Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos, where Hariprasad will also be participating.

The Global Innovators Community is a group of the world's most promising start-ups and scale-ups that are at the forefront of technological and business model innovation. The World Economic Forum provides the Global Innovators Community with a platform to engage with public and private-sector leaders and to contribute new solutions to overcome current crises and build future resiliency.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
