This innovator is new in the Class of '17 and it is so innovative that we couldn't resist. What if there was a Moody's-style service for determining the cyber risk associated with any organization, including governments? There is and it's this innovator. The best description of BitSight's service comes right from its web site landing page: The BitSight Security Rating Platform generates objective, quantitative measurements on a company's security performance to produce daily security ratings ranging from 250 to 900. BitSight analyzes existing security incidents and practices and applies sophisticated algorithms to produce these ratings, which are based on externally observable, non-intrusive data and methods. This is a subscription service very much like the familiar credit score model.
