New and existing SecurityScorecard capabilities are designed to create a more secure and resilient world:

  • SecurityScorecard’s commitment to free security ratings
    Any organization can view its rating, see the data that impacts a change in score, and access guidance for improvement – all at no cost. SecurityScorecard ratings are based on accurate data to objectively measure cyber risk and facilitate collaborative, risk-based conversations between organizations.
  • Setting the gold standard in methodology transparency
    SecurityScorecard stands alone in offering complete transparency in its scoring methodology. SecurityScorecard monitors hundreds of different cybersecurity signals and calculates a score based on a defined subset of issues. Each issue is associated with one of ten risk factor groups and is assigned a weight reflecting its severity.
  • Introducing new user-contributed data integration
    Any organization can now supplement its security rating with internal data, awarding achievements such as certifications, penetration testing, and cybersecurity training with positive scoring. SecurityScorecard provides a secure repository for certifications such as SOC 2 and ISO 27001 in its Evidence Locker. Once documentation is verified, organizations receive an evidence-based score improvement, encouraging a proactive cybersecurity ecosystem.
  • Ensuring the most transparent refute process
    Unlike other solutions, SecurityScorecard provides true transparency in the rating dispute process — this is equally open to customers and non-customers. All organizations have the right to challenge their rating and provide corrected or clarifying data. Disputed ratings are notated as such until resolved, and SecurityScorecard promptly reflects the inclusion of corrected information upon validation. All organizations receive a response from SecurityScorecard within 24 hours, and scores are adjusted within 72 hours.
  • Improving unrivaled accuracy: false positives now under 1%
    SecurityScorecard leads the industry in eliminating false positives. Through partnering with organizations, SecurityScorecard delivers statistical confidence and defensible data, guaranteeing precision in its ratings. SecurityScorecard’s unique approach includes rigorous validation of security data and training of AI models, resulting in a precise representation of cyber risk.
