BitSight Security Ratings for Benchmarking

BitSight Security Ratings for Benchmarking enable organizations to assess and monitor their cybersecurity posture, benchmark their security performance against industry peers, measure the impact of risk mitigation efforts, and report security progress and results to Boards of Directors more clearly and effectively.

Do you know how your organization’s cybersecurity program is performing in comparison to your industry average?

While other corporate functions have embraced benchmarking, risk and security teams have been left in the dark. Existing tools for network security are unable to compare security performance against industry averages and peers.

To effectively understand the impact of security programs and communicate changes to key decision makers, companies need tools that provide a quantified and comparative view of cybersecurity performance over time.

BitSight Security Ratings for Benchmarking deliver a continuous, data-driven measure of security performance, giving businesses a quantified baseline and comparative data. These ratings enable organizations to measure the effectiveness of risk mitigation programs, compare performance to industry peers and communicate key indicators to the Board.

BitSight continuously analyzes, rates and monitors companies’ security postures with externally observable data, accessible without permission from the rated company. Security ratings are updated daily and alerts are generated if there are significant changes in your company’s rating. In addition, users gain visibility into a wealth of risk vector data on themselves and peer companies, allowing them to benchmark their performance on a wide set of actionable security metrics.
