The FICO® Enterprise Security Score provides an easy-to-understand metric that facilitates board-level risk assessment, third-party vendor management, and cyber breach insurance underwriting. Along with a score, the product provides current threat profile characteristics and granular insights into potential security issues to facilitate security posture remediation and continuous improvement processes. The score also helps organizations manage cyber-risks from vendors, business partners and other third parties.
In generating the Enterprise Security Score, FICO uses supervised machine learning algorithms to analyze thousands of components of an organization's cybersecurity posture and behavior over time, and correlate these with observed data breach patterns. The result is an empirically derived view into cyber risk based on real mathematical equations, rather than arbitrary judgements or categorical assignments of points or grades. The score is based on data that is continuously collected at internet scale, allowing users to leverage the score and the underlying data infrastructure for continuous monitoring of risk – and ongoing remediation of issues – as threats, conditions and organizational behaviors change over time.
"The guidelines in the President's executive order on cybersecurity line up perfectly with the FICO Enterprise Security Score," said
