Have you ever wondered if there could be a silver bullet for cybersecurity? I argue that there can be, and it might not be what you think: I believe the silver bullet is a process.

Recently, ISACA published a white paper on the importance of digital trust to which, cybersecurity is a foundation. The article called digital trust an imperative, but did not offer any real solutions for business. I argue below that the silver bullet is third-party risk management (TPRM) and that ISACA can pull the trigger.

Thomas Lee Ph.D. is the CEO of VivoSecurity, a Silicon Valley based company focused on data collection, regression modeling and A.I. to bring predictability to the randomness of data breach. In cybersecurity, Thomas has developed models to forecast fraud in online banking, forecast data breach costs and probability for lawsuits in the event of a PII data breach. He has developed models to forecast PII data breaches by state and models to forecast the number of data breaches in the healthcare industry and probability of a PII data breach for companies and third-parties. Thomas has been an invited speaker at the Richmond Fed research conference 2018, invited participant at Richmond Fed cyber security workshop 2019, invited speaker at O.R.X Toronto & Milan 2018, speaker at OpRisk North America 2018, ACAMS panelist 2019, PRMIA NYC & BCG 2018, invited speaker at WiCyS Silicon Valley chapter in 2022, and ISACA Silicon Valley chapter in 2022.

Outside of cybersecurity, Thomas has pioneered computational techniques in medicine for refining x-ray diffraction data, noise reduction in electron micrographs using in 2D Fourier filtering, and singular value decomposition applied to electron micrographs to determine molecular packing of hemoglobin molecules in sickle cell anemia. In the industrial controls industry, he has pioneered pattern matching in the Fourier domain for particle size analysis and pattern matching for acoustic range finders.


Thomas has multiple patents and publications in peer reviewed journals and holds BS degrees in Physics and Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington, and an MS and Ph.D. in Biophysics from the University of Chicago. Thomas can be contacted at
