New York, NY, October 9, 2018 - SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, will host the company’s annual CISO User Conference on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at SecurityScorecard headquarters in New York, New York. At this year’s SecurityScorecard CISO User Conference attendees will be exposed to the latest research and findings in the vendor risk management arena as the recognized top innovators in the cybersecurity space.

“As SecurityScorecard continues to expand globally, the annual CISO User Conference serves as a cybersecurity consortium to brainstorm the next phase of understanding the vendor risk ecosystem with the top minds on the front lines,” said Sam Kassoumeh, Co-founder and COO of SecurityScorecard. “SecurityScorecard customers and partners are at the heart and forefront of our product innovation and roadmap for the company’s security ratings platform.”

The conference keynote, Translating National Risk to the Enterprise Ecosystem, will be delivered by SecurityScorecard advisor and former 75th United States Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus. Mabus served as Secretary of the Navy under President Obama from 2009 to 2017. As Navy secretary, Mabus oversaw an annual budget of over $170 billion and almost 900,000 people.

SecurityScorecard continually monitors over 200,000 businesses across the world and rates them on an easy to understand A-F scale. Companies that rate as a D or F are 5.4 times more likely to be breached than companies that rate as an A or a B. The platform also provides ratings across 10 risk factors, which give deeper insights into the company’s security.
