How it worksThe Verizon Risk Report enables enterprises to quantify their current exposure to cyber-related risks, and obtain an understanding of the probability of a potential future breach. In addition, it provides a quantitative and qualitative assessment of preventative measures, all underpinned by a framework for sustainable and measurable improvements. Customers benefit from three service modules that integrate the specialized threat data sources via a consolidated customer security portal:
- Level 1 - the 'outside-in view': This initial view uses BitSight's security rating service combined with deep web and dark web information from Recorded Future for external assessments. This data is enhanced and contextualized with insights from the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR).
- Level 2 - the 'inside-out view': The external risk score obtained in level 1 can be enriched with an internal analysis of the business' in-house systems using Cylance and Tanium software agents. These are deployed on critical customer endpoints to provide an external and internal risk profile. The threat intelligence provided at this level is specific to the customer's individual industry.
- Level 3 - the 'culture and process view': Finally, information obtained by levels 1 and 2 can then be combined with qualitative assessments of an enterprise's security policies, processes and organizational behavior. This step concludes and completes the crucial 360-degree assessment of customer's cybersecurity posture.
