The data obtained from the analyses are integrated with information obtained from Mastercard’s Threat Intelligence, which continuously monitors, 365×24, the cybersecurity risk of more than 15 million companies in even the most highly regulated industries, from finance and insurance to aerospace and healthcare.
The data is correlated to provide a quantitative and objective assessment of the risk level of one’s business environment, with summary and detailed views: the data obtained has an accuracy of 99.1 percent, as certified by independent third parties.
In addition to assessing one’s own exposure to risk, Cybersecurity Rating & Assessment services also allow one to assess and monitor the security level of one’s suppliers and partners over time, ensuring that one’s entire supply chain is meeting expected security levels, promptly identifying any vendors that could pose a risk to the Company.
