Confidently measure risk with actionable insights
Resilient organizations must focus on three main areas when it comes to cyber resilience—being hard to hit, being ready for the cyber attack when it comes, and being able to recover quickly.
RedSeal’s Digital Resilience Score (DRS) is the trusted “board level” metric and executive summary report enabling organizations to easily measure and benchmark their risk. It is built on vulnerabilities, compliance and the completeness of information about your infrastructure. The insights from the score can help set team goals to focus on high risk issues and view the trending information to flag deviations. Turning these capabilities into cyber risk measurements gives the boards of directors, executive management, chief information security officers and managers the understandable and actionable security metrics they need to drive towards digital resilience.
RedSeal’s Digital Cyber Resilience Score focuses on three essential questions:
- Do you have defects that are easy to hit? RedSeal’s Digital Cyber Resilience score evaluates how weaknesses from incorrectly configured devices and third-party software could impact your digital resilience and help organizations to embed best practices in network security.
- Can an attacker reach your valuable assets? RedSeal’s Digital Resilience Score evaluates cyber risk by measuring how well your network is structured, identifying attack pathways and chains of vulnerability that reduce your ability to withstand and recover from network vulnerabilities and network security threats.
- Is your network understanding complete? By identifying previously unknown parts of your network, RedSeal’s Digital Resilience Score evaluates how well you know what your digital infrastructure looks like. With a complete picture, you can be sure you’re managing all assets on your network. During an attack, you’ll be able to understand where an attacker can reach. And, you’ll be able to recover much more quickly.
A higher score means you’re becoming more resilient.
RedSeal’s Digital Resilience Score tops out at 850, like a creditworthiness score. The Digital Resilience Score deducts points for defensive gaps, weaknesses revealed by attack simulations, and blind spots in your infrastructure awareness. A higher Digital Resilience Score means there is a higher likelihood that your business can withstand a security incident and keep running. Raising your score means you are heading in a more resilient direction. These security metrics are normalized so that the score doesn’t get distorted as your organization grows, and it provides valuable information when you’re evaluating potential mergers or acquisitions.
