Cyber Transparency


Measure a company's security and privacy posture from the outside looking in.

The cyber risk ratings industry is ushering in a new age of transparency. They continuously measure numerous external risk factors, and develop a FICO-like rating that indicates the vulnerability to a data breach. A demonstrably higher, objectively-measured, security and privacy posture can help a company gain market share and be more highly valued by investors.

We show clients how to use BitSight, the industry leader, to gain insights on their own performance, as well as that of their vendors, M&A targets and competitors. Private equity firm clients monitor their portfolio companies, so they can identify areas in need of attention. 

Self-Awareness and Reputation Management

Your customers, prospects, regulators, cyber insurance underwriters and others are already sizing up your security posture using BitSight. Boards incorporate BitSight reports in their periodic reviews of cyber security because they distill technical information into a form that lay people can understand. You should understand how the ratings are derived and take action to maximize them.

Vendor Risk Management

The 2013 Target Corp. breach via an insecure HVAC vendor demonstrated that a company's security is only as strong as its weakest link. Every company needs to understand the risk associated with their vendor community. Traditional tactics involving questionnaires and onerous, expensive and time-consuming penetration test, are part of the answer. It's not enough to measure cyber hygiene at a moment in time, because the conditions could be completely different a day later.

BitSight objectively, externally and unobtrusively measures the security posture of any organization across numerous attributes, resulting in a rating that can change from moment to moment.

The BitSight platform promotes active collaboration between a company and its vendors. 

M&A / Corporate Finance Due Diligence

Data security and privacy is now an issue that corporate development officers, M&A advisors and corporate finance professionals want to address early in the due diligence process, before valuation and terms are negotiated. We help investment bankers, equity and fixed income research professionals, private equity sponsors, and the companies they all cover, understand data security and privacy issues, as well as data value creation opportunities.

Cyber Insurance Renewal Prep

Seven of the ten largest cyber insurance underwriters use BitSight when setting a company's premium, so you can lower your costs by understanding your vulnerability and taking steps to raise your rating.
