Our Principles for Fairness and Accuracy

BitSight is committed to creating trustworthy, data-driven, and dynamic measurements of organizational cybersecurity performance derived from objective, verifiable information. As the pioneer of the security ratings industry, BitSight established the guidelines for responsible development of security ratings. In 2017, BitSight helped create the "Principles for Fair and Accurate Security Ratings,” a series of practices developed alongside some of the world’s largest and most risk-focused companies. These Principles affirm the critical role of security ratings in society and the important responsibility that BitSight holds in creating these measurements.
