SecurityScorecard’s Fall 2020 Release: Driving Cyber Resilience and Agility

By Michelle Wu

Posted on Oct 13, 2020

2020 has brought countless changes to our personal and working lives. The sudden shift to remote work has created a new normal which, for IT and security teams, means engaging with new vendors and pivoting from longer-term goals to secure an increasingly complex attack surface. The need to adapt to these new challenges while supporting business continuity has put the spotlight on cyber resilience and agility.

At SecurityScorecard, we believe that simplifying cyber risk monitoring and third-party risk assessment workflows allows organizations to build resilient cybersecurity teams. We are thrilled to announce the newest enhancements to our platform, which are designed to help teams succeed in a shifting risk environment.

What is cyber resilience and agility?

So what does it mean to be cyber resilient and agile? It means having a streamlined and effective cybersecurity program that allows you to prioritize your organization’s most pressing security and business demands. It means reducing the impact of security issues with rapid and effective responses and minimizing downtime.

A cyber resilient organization thrives in a dynamic risk environment because its operations are efficient and unencumbered by unnecessary time-consuming manual processes. These strengths allow security teams to meet today’s top challenges, such as securing digital supply chains while operating on static or shrinking budgets.

How can your team become cyber resilient?

Our work with Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) all over the world has shown us that those who are successfully managing the shift to the new normal have embraced scalable, automated workflows to gain the flexibility needed to secure a newly remote workforce and a complex vendor ecosystem. By implementing the right tools and procedures, and choosing solutions that integrate with one another, security teams can gain more leverage out of their existing resources and technology, which helps manage costs.

In our latest ebook, How Security and IT Teams Can Manage the Shift to the New Normal, we outline three key processes of cyber-resilient organizations:

  1. Manage third-party risk at scale. Using security ratings data to gain an instant view of vendor security posture, and prioritizing due diligence and oversight accordingly, prevents cybersecurity procedures from becoming a costly bottleneck in the supply chain management process.
  2. Enable resilience through automation. Leveraging continuous monitoring—as well as automated alerts and actions—improves speed and consistency of response to cybersecurity events, resulting in fewer business interruptions
  3. Optimize spend. Using Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and universal language to gauge and communicate risk drives informed budgetary decision-making.
