Doug Hubbard and his team’s work is mentioned in high regard often in articles, by peers and clients alike. Perhaps it’s because HDR utilizes native Excel to create custom automation models for each client’s specific needs – without any limitations of an existing software solution and without annual licensing or subscription fees that often come along with traditional software solutions.
This week an article in InfoSec 2020 was brought to our attention where Doug is mentioned specifically by the Union Pacific CISO, Rick Holmes. Union Pacific is the second largest railroad system in the United States and is one of the largest transportation companies in the world.
A portion of the article reads, “UP assesses and analyzes risk from four different perspectives – those of an insurance company or actuarial expert, a compliance auditor, a legal advisor and the mind of an attacker. Key to the process, however, is the risk probability modeling that the cyber risk assessment team developed in order to statistically convey to upper management the likelihood of a cyber event occurring and the calculable monetary loss that would result.
For this, UP recruited management consultant and author Douglas Hubbard, who helped devise a framework that analyzed and categorized UP’s computing environment into various asset classes.”
