Cisa Adds Securityscorecard To Free Cybersecurity Resources For Vulnerable Critical Infrastructure Sectors
Fremont, CA: Cybersecurity has always been a never-ending race, but the pace of change is picking up. Companies are continuing to invest in technology in order to run their operations.
SecurityScorecard, the global leader in cybersecurity ratings, has been added to the catalog of Free Cybersecurity Services and Tools, founded by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to improve the cyber resilience of vulnerable and under-resourced critical infrastructure sectors. The security ratings provided by SecurityScorecard provide an objective, data-driven view of an organization's cybersecurity risk exposure as well as cybersecurity hygiene, which are quantified and scored on an easy-to-understand A-F (0-100) scale.
The CISA Cybersecurity Services and Tools catalog, launched in February 2022, is a collection of free tools made available by government agencies and private companies to assist organizations in reducing the likelihood of a harmful cyber incident, either through rapid detection of malicious activities or by amplifying resilience through incident response.
"SecurityScorecard pioneered assessments that use metrics and readings to provide organizations with a complete picture of cyber risk exposure," remarked Sachin Bansal, Chief Business and Legal Officer of SecurityScorecard. "As threat actors proliferate and the world grows increasingly more risk-averse, our security ratings and data provide the valuable insights needed to maintain a more resilient posture. We are pleased to work with CISA to expand access to this much needed resource."
According to the CISA website, it "applies neutral principles and criteria to add items and maintains sole and unreviewable discretion over the determination of items included. CISA does not attest to the suitability or effectiveness of these services and tools for any particular use case. CISA does not endorse any commercial product or service. Any reference to specific commercial products, processes, or services by service mark, trademark, manufacturer, or otherwise, does not constitute or imply their endorsement, recommendation, or favoring by CISA."
