SecurityScorecard’s Co-Founder and CEO was honored for his leadership and commitment to strengthening cybersecurity trust and transparency across the digital ecosystem.

SecurityScorecard MAX builds on the company’s decade of experience in supply chain cyber risk management. MAX efficiently identifies, prioritizes, and resolves critical vulnerabilities across third-party and extended Nth party supply chains.

Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO and Co-Founder, SecurityScorecard, said: “Trust and transparency are key to securing the supply chain. The responsibility of maintaining robust cybersecurity goes beyond individual companies. It takes a collective effort to elevate the cybersecurity of the entire global ecosystem.”

The most innovative and forward-thinking cybersecurity solutions

The Global InfoSec Awards reward the organizations and security solutions demonstrating a forward-thinking approach to managing cyber risk and protecting against increasingly complex cyber threats. The awards honor companies and products for their efforts to give the advantage to defenders in the face of ongoing cybercrime. Judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of each company. 

Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine, added: “SecurityScorecard embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution, and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach.”
