Scott Borg

Director and Chief Economist
U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit

Scott Borg is Director of the U.S. Cyber Consequences Unit, an independent, nonprofit research institute that investigates the strategic and economic consequences of cyber attacks. Widely recognized as the leading authority on the economics of cybersecurity, he has been the principle proponent of a quantitative, risk-based approach to cybersecurity for more than fourteen years. Along with John Bumgarner, he is co-author of the new US-CCU Cyber-Security Matrix, the most comprehensive survey of cyber defense measures.

His other technical contributions have included pioneering work on the techniques for hiding and finding malware. Because of the way he has employed economic models to analyze potential attackers, he has been able to anticipate most of the new developments in cybersecurity since 2002. He comments for NBC, CNN, the BBC, NPR and other broadcast media, served on the Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th Presidency, and has lectured at Harvard, Yale, Columbia and other leading universities.
