The FICO® Cyber Risk Score is an empirical score that relies on a comprehensive and diverse set of cybersecurity data signals, collected at an Internet scale, to determine the risk profile and posture of any organization. These signals reflect key risk indicators including the health and hygiene of IT systems, network infrastructure, and software and services. These current and historical data signal behaviors are compared to past behaviors of organizations that have, and have not, suffered a material data breach.
Together, this information is used to train a machine learning model that produces a risk score that forecasts the likelihood of a future breach event in the next 12 months.
FICO® Cyber Risk Score utilizes time-series observations associated with the internet-facing assets on your network. These risk indicators are augmented with corporate demographic details and compiled cyber risk information. Rather than simply inventorying temporal vulnerabilities or issues, these indicators are used, in aggregate, to help form an understanding of network hygiene practices, consistency in policy, and the network management track record of an organization.
