Peer Analytics: Understand cybersecurity performance in the context of your peers

It has never been more important for security and risk leaders, executives, and board members to know their industry’s security performance standards and perform peer and sector-wide security benchmarking.

Knowing and meeting the industry security performance standard is critical for organizations to win new business and remain competitive in their respective markets. Furthermore, organizations face legal liability for failing to meet customer requirements and standards of care for cybersecurity. 

But due to the ever-changing nature of the cyber landscape, expectations and standards of care are constantly in flux – what was “adequate” security yesterday may not be today. Traditional approaches to cyber assessment (like point-in-time security audits and compliance reviews) provide only limited internal security performance analysis with no insight into industry-wide standards for a comprehensive, real-time comparative assessment. 

To address this need and help our customers meet industry standards of care, in early 2019, we launched BitSight Peer Analytics.

Achieve critical peer group cybersecurity performance measurements

The latest Security Performance Management offering on the BitSight Platform, Peer Analytics enables organizations to meet and surpass their industry standard by helping them discover the security performance standard within their markets and identify performance gaps and discrepancies with their peers. Using this insight, they can then identify a security performance target that makes sense for them in relation to that group, effectively allocate limited resources, and create improvement plans. 

With Peer Analytics they can also report critical, meaningful metrics about their security program to executives, directors, and customers and regulators.
