CIQ360 is the cyber risk rating service for insurers and businesses bringing on partners or customers that assesses that prospect's cyber risk. By scanning the same external domains as "the bad guys" to assess the prospect as a target, CIQ360 rates their risk in cyberspace. Cyberspace is the internet, social media and the darkweb. Your prospect has no significant control over these three domains, but they will likely be active in, promote their business and even transact in. This creates risk, which CIQ360 measures and reports on.
CIQ360 works in cyberspace, a world outside of the control of your clients. CIQ360 does not need access to the client's offices, network or data, as the information being gathered and assessed is in the public domain. As it is not owned or managed by the client, CIQ360 does not need their permission to create the report. CIQ360 uses ethical processes and techniques to generate its report and does not breach any laws or ethical codes to deliver this service.
Reporting the results of the CIQ360 scans combines easy to read graphics with explanations that provide both a top level summary with the detail for the business analysts and IT to be able to act upon. All specific risks are rated using a traffic lights system and are provided with recommendations that can help improve the cyber risk rating for the prospect.
Do you give customers special access to your website or systems?
Do you know if they have good cybersecurity?
Will they bring unwanted risk to your business?
Cyber or Cyber Risk Insurers do not have the tools to accurately assess their prospects and client's cyber risk. Yet policies for millions are issued with a simple survey about their security systems. 70% of the risk they face is external. Use a CIQ360 assessment to find out what that risk might look like.
Privileged access to your systems that you give to software providers, website designers, reseller partners or suppliers exposes your business to risk beyond the security that you have for your network and infrastructure. Using a CIQ360 assessment to check what level of risk a partner might be is good business practice.
