Find Out How Security Ratings can Reduce Your Company's Risk.
The BitSight Security Rating Platform gathers terabytes of data on daily security outcomes from hundreds of sensors deployed across the globe.
All of the data is externally available and collected without any intrusive testing. Data is classified into several risk categories, including botnets, spam, malware, unsolicited communication, DDoS, and system configuration, and then mapped to an organization's known networks.
BitSight’s sophisticated algorithms analyze the data for severity, frequency, duration, and confidence to create an overall rating of that organization’s security performance.

This past May, over 300,000 computers in over 150 countries were affected by the WannaCry ransomware attacks. Despite an available patch from Microsoft, many of the companies failed to install critical updates prior to the attack-- leaving them vulnerable. Thousands of machines were infected and the worm caused network outages, flight cancellations, and ATM failures. Given the increasing number of endpoint devices connected to corporate networks, the ever- expanding supply chain, and the complexity of cyber attacks, are companies adequately updating their operating systems? In this webinar, BitSight Data Scientist Dan Dahlberg will discuss:
-BitSight’s own research on outdated endpoints and their correlation to the May 2017 WannaCry attacks
-The risk of running outdated systems on your business’ bottom line
-The risks organizations face if companies in their supply chain are not keeping up with their patching process
