In 2018, the team produced an analysis of the factors influencing the rise of new global data powers (data tigers) and identified which countries are likely to emerge as major players in this landscape. The team created a Data Tiger Probability Index that scored and evaluated 162 countries for their global data hub capacities.
To make this index, students examined elements of systemic cybersecurity risk, researched nine country case studies, and reverse–engineered the attributes that made Ireland a technology hub. In a second GRG report for Microsoft, a team used financial systemic risk as an analogy for a hypothetical systemic cybersecurity risk regime. The report addressed how cybersecurity may be defined and analyzed in terms of risk and identified high-risk institutions and countries as well as mitigation strategies.
