In addition to striving for high performance in cybersecurity for their companies, when the consequences for a breach can be as high as job loss and reputational damage for a CISO, it’s no surprise that every CISO is looking to stay at the top of their game. They are paying close attention to their progress relative to cybersecurity preparedness, to how much they have improved their organization’s and vendor ecosystem’s cybersecurity health, and how they will stay ahead of risk factors that could result in breach. With hackers becoming increasingly savvy and cyber resilience taking precedence over the strength of the perimeter, the measure of CISO is no longer just about the cybersecurity health of their organization at a point-in-time, but instead is about how their risk management programs can continually measure and document improved cybersecurity health of their ecosystems over time.
To that end, to understand which CISOs have developed programs that have pushed their organizations forward in terms of cybersecurity, SecurityScorecard ran an analysis, looking at the security ratings of organizations over a six month period and identified which organizations improved those scores the most; whether overall or within a specific risk area.
