What is Cybernomics? 

Coined by Keyun Ruan in 2016, Cybernomics is a new field in the intersection between cyber risk and economics, tailored for the 4th Industrial Revolution. It is a field dedicated to study 1) the valuation of all digital assets 2) the measurement of risk exposure of all digital assets and 3) the capital optimisation for managing risks of all digital assets. Cybernomics concerns the accurate valuation of our global digital economy as a whole, as well as accurate measurement of its associated risks. 

 

The key novelty of Keyun's cybernomic theories include introducing six new laws of cybernomics, the invention of novel digital asset valuation models for the digital economy, as well as the invention of bitmort and hekla, a pair of measurement units for cyber risk.
