Assess your outside threats and those of your vendors
Cloud technologies and wide nets of companies connected to supply chains have recently formed a larger attack surface for cybercriminals than ever before. Organizations are not single players on this battlefield; they entered a multi-player game and have to trust and rely on all members of this “community” to do the best possible cybersecurity job and build cyber resilience. SecurityScorecard* risk rating solution can help you achieve your goal by continuously monitoring the attack surface.
The only reliable way to know precisely how well you and your vendors rank in terms of cybersecurity risk is to constantly keep an eye on the attack surface. Every change in system architecture and configuration may change the organisation’s ranking. Interconnections make companies more vulnerable since one security breach in one chain link poses a threat of disruption and business loss in any other supply chain link.
All these are the reasons why it is highly recommended to monitor your and your suppliers’ attack surface and respond accordingly. SecurityScorecard is a state-of-the-art solution that does a great job in this respect.
SecurityScorecard ranks identified risks from A to F
SecurityScorecard is a solution that uses a transparent methodology to scan each organisation’s attack surface and ranks it according to the specified security risks. The final outcome of the assessment is a scorecard with security ranks for ten risk factors:
- Network security
- DNS health
- Patching cadence
- Endpoint security
- IP reputation
- Application security
- Cubit score
- Hacker chatter
- Information leak
- Social engineering
The score is calculated in three fundamental and transparent steps.
First SecurityScorecard picks up signals from the outside corresponding to the ten factors mentioned before. Signal picking is done 100 % harmless and does not influence the network operation. Furthermore, upon signal picking, the solution also monitors when and how infected services communicate with the central unit.
In the second stage, the solution identifies the attack surface (including affiliates, subdomains, etc.). The accuracy rate is 99 %; the KPIs and algorithms are publically available, so the users can always check how the rating was calculated.
Once the first two steps are finished, the score is calculated. The result is based on historical data collected in the SecurityScorecard database, which enables the solution to predict which findings make the organizations more prone to security breaches.
