New York, NY, December 11, 2018 - SecurityScorecard, the leader in security ratings, and Cybernance Corporation, a thought leader in the business of cyber risk governance, announced today a technology integration partnership, extending the SecurityScorecard security ratings platform to Cybernance customers.

- Prioritize Vendors for Review: Use SecurityScorecard ratings to determine which vendors to prioritize for deeper reviews based on their cybersecurity risk posture.
- Validate Assessments: Validate or invalidate assessment responses from vendors by leveraging data from SecurityScorecard.
“Enterprise customers turn to Cybernance to evaluate where they stand against national security standards and recommendations, like the NIST Cybersecurity Framework,” said Bob Barker, Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, Cybernance Corporation. “Through the partnership with SecurityScorecard, our customers can now better manage their cyber risk and, ultimately, the steps to take to increase overall security posture.”
