Performing Cost-Benefit Analysis on Hospital Risk


The Cost-Benefit Analysis

The cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is invaluable for making investment and budgeting decisions for many leaders. A well-developed CBA gives decision-makers a more objective and defensible way to assess the tangible and intangible costs and benefits of a project or solution. 

Risk managers and cyber security teams often struggle to develop meaningful CBAs because they rely on qualitative risk analysis methods that use colors (e.g., red/yellow/green) and risk scoring systems (e.g., 1 - 25) that are not up to the task. To perform a meaningful cost-benefit analysis, you need to measure and express risk quantitatively, in dollars and cents. Quantitative analysis should provide decision-makers with a simple yet effective way to compare each option side-by-side when evaluating risk treatment options.
