Financial organizations are prime targets for hackers.

Remediate vulnerabilities that expose you to attack and noncompliance.

Safeguard your business and brand reputation.

Financial institutions are magnets for hackers. Successful attacks reap huge benefits. Ongoing reliance on legacy systems and insufficient third-party risk management practices make commercial and investment banks especially prone to increasingly hostile data breaches and ransomware. One incident can threaten short- and long-term business value and brand reputation.

Financial institutions must make significant strides in basic cybersecurity hygiene by continuously assessing and monitoring their own security posture as well as the cyberhealth of their vendor and partner ecosystems.

Security Ratings

The SecurityScorecard Ecosystem Risk Management platform analyzes risk across 10 factors encompassing millions of unique data points. Our proprietary algorithms leverage this threat intelligence to calculate an overall security score for your organization as well as for every one of your service providers. Recognized as the industry standard for financial institutions, our security ratings form the backbone of risk management in some of the world’s largest commercial and investment banks.

Vendor Risk Management

Regulators continue to scrutinize and crack down on enforcement related to third-party risk management. The Federal Reserve Board mandates specific characteristics, governance, and operations for financial sector service provider risk management. Comprehensive oversight and continuous risk monitoring are required for the complete contractual lifecycle of all outsourced relationships. Vet the security posture of every service provider and look at common security issues correlated across a group of companies or portfolio to determine which vulnerabilities to focus on first. Gain unprecedented visibility into vendor systems and data that integrate with your infrastructure. Reduce your liability. Secure your ecosystem.

Threat Reconnaissance

Rely on the most accurate security ratings and detailed threat intelligence available. Identify data assets at risk, and proactively eliminate vulnerabilities before attackers exploit them. Our best-of-breed data collection and precise attribution capabilities reveal malicious activity in your IT infrastructure as well as in service provider environments. Proactively address cybersecurity to prevent damaging data and financial losses.

Self Assessment

Discover, monitor, and report on the cyberhealth of your infrastructure from the outside in – see what a hacker sees. Evaluate your risk with our proprietary data collection and analytics capabilities. Our security ratings allow you to drill down into specific issues and seamlessly collaborate with service providers to expedite incident response and remediation.


Map vulnerabilities in your ecosystem to any financial industry security standard or framework, including SOX, PCI DSS, and ISO. Combine SecurityScorecard security Ratings with FFIEC’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool to measure and evaluate preparedness and maturity. Assess and analyze vulnerable behaviors, practices, and processes in specific cybersecurity domains to achieve the level of security commensurate with your risk profile.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Higher valuations are contributing to increased consolidation. Banks continue to fuel growth through acquisition. During M&A transactions, outdated and vulnerable legacy systems are absorbed by the acquiring institution and often not updated or secured for years to come. Before you merge or acquire, investigate your M&A target’s IT infrastructure compatibility, ease of integration, and most importantly, security posture with the most powerful and accurate tools and technologies available to the financial industry.

Cyber Insurance

Insurance providers leverage our platform when underwriting cyber insurance policies for their customers. We enables financial institutions to take control of their risk profile while giving insurers visibility into the cyberhealth of their prospects and policyholders.
