Innovus Consulting Services, an international consulting company in the fields of cybersecurity and digital transformation, along with Silicon Valley analytic software firm FICO announced today that Innovus has joined the FICO® Enterprise Security Score partner program. Through the partnership, Innovus Consulting Services will incorporate the FICO® Enterprise Security Score into its portfolio of solutions and services. The FICO Enterprise Security Score enables Innovus clients to accurately assess cybersecurity risk within their own organisation, as well as monitor the risk of their vendors.
"Executive leaders are looking for a trusted benchmark to help them quantify cybersecurity risk as well as measure the performance of their cybersecurity investments," said Doug Clare, vice president of cybersecurity solutions at FICO. "Innovus Consulting Services’ capabilities in digital transformation — including penetration testing, security process and posture assessment, remediation and customer awareness — enable outcome-based solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts. Our Enterprise Security Score complements these capabilities with an empirical, data-driven approach to ongoing cyber risk quantification."
“Our customers are embarking on a digital transformation journey, and it’s imperative that they know where they are in the process, what they need to do and who they are doing it with, especially in regard to cybersecurity," said Lou Cirillo, Sr. Partner, Innovus Consulting Services. "The FICO Enterprise Security Score enables customers to get a sense of their current risk and benchmark their journey to accelerate risk mitigation and monitoring across the enterprise. The industries where we are most active, including smart cities, mining, retail, health and government, will benefit from the empirical risk assessment and visibility that the FICO Enterprise Security Score provides."
The FICO® Enterprise Security Score provides an easy-to-understand metric that facilitates empirically informed board-level risk assessment, third-party vendor management, and cyber breach insurance underwriting. The FICO Enterprise Security score gives organisations a quantitative measure of the likelihood of significant cyber breach in the next 12 months. The solution outlines current threat profile characteristics and granular insights into potential security issues to facilitate security posture remediation and continuous improvement processes.
