SecurityScorecard to Help US Counties Better Assess Cybersecurity Posture
Information security company SecurityScorecard announced a partnership with the National Association of Counties that would allow county governments in the United States to access its cybersecurity rating platform for monitoring and risk reduction purposes. The platform for assessing cybersecurity postures is already being piloted in 38 counties, SecurityScorecard said Monday.
The New York-based company said its platform is capable of collecting and analyzing global threat signals that give organizations instant visibility into the security posture of vendors and business partners and their capability to assess their own cybersecurity status. The platform continuously monitors 10 groups of risk factors and delivers an easy-to-understand A-F rating.
Sachin Bansal, chief business and legal officer of SecurityScorecard, said his company is committed to keeping counties’ information secure.
For her part, Rita Reynolds, NACo’s chief information officer, said that the partnership with SecurityScorecard will help improve the health of county networks and provide immediate access to information about cyber threats and risks.
SecurityScorecard said that it had recently established partnerships with the New York Department of Financial Services and the Conference of State Banking Supervisors. The company is also working with multiple congressional committees, federal and state agencies, and local authorities, meeting regularly with government agencies for policy and operational collaboration.
