The Evolution and Proliferation of Security RatingsSam Kassoumeh of SecurityScorecard on the Past, Present and Future of Ratings
Five years ago, rating the cybersecurity posture of organizations to help reduce risk and improve their security posture was a new idea. Since then, the concept has been expanded to include everything from threat management to cyber insurance premiums, says Sam Kassoumeh, COO of SecurityScorecard.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Kassoumeh discusses:
- The evolution of security ratings;
- Why and how security ratings are being applied, including for cyber insurance purposes;
- Considerations when using cyber threat intelligence signals for third-party and overall IT risk management.
Kassoumeh is co-founder and COO at SecurityScoreCard. He formerly was head of security and compliance at Gilt Groupe and worldwide information security lead at Federal-Mogul.
