SecurityScorecard - The Business Case for Investing in a Security Ratings Platform

According to the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report, 75% of breaches are a result of issues around third-party security. Unfortunately, most assessment techniques used to determine a business partner’s cyber readiness are point-in-time and only express a vendor’s cyber health at a particular moment. The problem with these types of audits is that a vendor’s cyber posture can change overnight due to systems and network modifications that are made. In this white paper from SecurityScorecard and HMG Strategy, discover how a security ratings platform can help companies to continually monitor and respond to changes in the cyber health of their vendor ecosystems.

HCL Technologies - Bridging the Digital Disconnect - Modernizing Infrastructures to Deliver a Cohesive Customer Experience

Companies are under mounting pressure to deliver digital customer experiences that are fast, easy, effective, safe, and secure at each level of every interaction.
