Managing digital business risk has become a critical success factor for board members and senior executives. High-profile losses and new regulations across many industry sectors make it crucial to monitor and manage these risks closely. Even the best cybersecurity tools and all the data they produce cannot predict the business impact of unexpected digital exposures lurking around the corner.


The only Dynamic Digital Risk Platform

The Instinct Engine implements a dynamic quantitative risk model to capture inputs from your key business and security stakeholders. It combines this expert information with targeted metrics and analytics to help organizations manage their cyber risk appetite at the second line of defense. The Instinct Engine provides consistent visibility into risk posture across business units, technologies, and assets—comparing the total impact an organization is willing to tolerate against tomorrow’s scenarios, predicting where attacks may occur and the damage they can cause.


Easy to Deploy, Self-Learning, Instinctive Interface

The Instinct Engine installs easily on-premises or in the cloud and only needs two to three data sources to begin providing a picture of your digital risks.

It takes a multidimensional compound-metric approach to answering the question “should we be nervous?” about risk exposures ranging from:

  • Cyber Exposures
  • Personnel Factors
  • Process Breakdowns
  • Technology Impact
  • and more.

The engine assesses hundreds of potential loss scenarios created by these exposures and prioritizes those that are the most likely and could create the biggest business impacts.

The Instinct platform enables users to build and track large numbers of digital risk scenarios with simple metrics and visualizations to help understand overall risk across their business. Taking advantage of existing data sources, the Instinct Engine applies advanced data analysis and swarming AI to measure risk and exposure, including comparison across different leading government and industry security frameworks. This combination of business and security assessment intelligence sets a new benchmark for effective digital risk management.

Scenario Risk Modeling

Emergent’s Instinct Engine uses real-world risk scenarios to show exposure to top-level business impacts. The platform has a large scenario library out of the box and includes a scenario-building module that enables users to quickly model and assess other situations of concern.

Machine Imagination

The Instinct Engine also uses powerful machine imagination AI to generate new scenarios. This feature expands the predefined core scenarios to find areas of weakness and higher risk that might be overlooked.

Flexible Deployment and Data

Instinct Engine can easily be installed on-prem or in the cloud and integrates with 50+ out-of-the-box data sources. No sensitive data is stored in the Instinct Engine. Installation and data connections can be completed in as little as five days with no additional deployment needed. Learn more about data sources.
