BitSight Security Ratings as Your Credit Union Solution2016 innovation award winner seal partners

With the BitSight Security Ratings solution, credit unions can continuously monitor and manage risk associated with their own network and those of their vendors, strengthening their overall security posture.

Traditional strategies and existing tools for measuring and mitigating third party vendor security risk are inadequate against the constant stream of new and emerging threats facing your credit union. 

Many global financial institutions have experienced major third-party breaches, but credit unions are also a target for cyber hackers and the “vendor-related risk for credit unions is severe.”

According to the 2015 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 70% of breaches stemmed from a third party.

Credit unions need a continuous solution that identifies, quantifies, and mitigates risk without being intrusive or resource-heavy – and that doesn’t require any information from the company being rated. 

Get a quick overview of BitSight Security Ratings, which are similar in nature to credit scores by watching the following video, BitSight Security Ratings: A Data-Driven Approach to Vendor Risk Management (VRM)

  • helps your credit union identify issues that put your data at risk
  • fosters better communication with third parties
  • integrates into your vendor risk management program
