"There's a lot of buzz about cybersecurity ratings, but most businesses don't understand how they work or know how they rank," said
The free subscription enables organizations to curate the assets upon which their score is based, tagging the correct assets and removing assets that are not connected to their network. This provides transparency, enables fair assessment, and improves accuracy in the security scoring process.
"Organizations need to trust that their score is based on accurate data," Clare said. "With this free program, FICO is the first ratings provider to bring total transparency and self-service asset curation to the process of cybersecurity risk assessment."
The FICO® Enterprise Security Score is based on billions of cyber risk indicators that are monitored at Internet scale. It relies on machine learning to interpret the network hygiene practices of thousands of previously breached organizations and form predictors that amplify the signals associated with behaviors proven to increase the risk of data loss. The FICO Enterprise Security Score is part of the FICO® Enterprise Risk Suite.
Organizations subscribing to the Portrait portal within the FICO® Enterprise Risk Suite can view their own three-digit Enterprise Security Score, on a scale of 300 – 850, and use it to understand and track their own performance. The score can also be shared with business partners as an easy-to-understand surrogate for a more in-depth exchange of security posture details.
