Security Risk Assessment Service
Standard & Poors and Moody's are incorporating IT security risk into their credit scoring models. Failure to maintain good security will jeopardize your company's ability to borrow money - just when it is needed most. Now is the time to move beyond "check-the-box" security risk management.
Convergency partners with you to implement a Security Risk Assessment Program that pays for itself.
What is your risk score telling others?
Up-to-Date Security Insights
Your Peace of Mind
Convergency’s Scorecard provides a comprehensive overview of how well your security team and the security teams of each of your vendors are managing risk. As risks become issues, scores drop, email alerts are sent to relevant parties and remediation steps clearly defined.
Common examples: Know when a vendor misses a critical security patch, when a server has been incorrectly configured or when a system is nearing end of life.
Contracts & Negotiations
Security is weak if it cannot be enforced. Your legal team is looking for advice and direction on how to hold your vendors accountable for good security standards and to bind negligence to penalties or contractual termination. Your procurement team is looking for information that can help shape price negotiations. That's where Convergency comes in. As part of our service, our team works with your legal and procurement teams to establish standards, assess the intrinsic value and enforce oversight.
A security assessment questionnaire becomes viable when it covers sufficient risk criteria, adheres to a regulatory security framework and when it is measurable. Too long and the responders becoming unresponsive. Too many "yes" or "no" responses and the answers become meaningless. Convergency's assessment questionnaires and workflows automate scoring and provide actionable insight, reducing the time it takes to complete the collection and governance cycles.
Credit Scoring Impact
Security risk management is about to undergo a significant shift. As Standard & Poor's and Moody's roll-out their revised credit scoring models, the ability for organizations to borrow money could be negatively impacted by poor security posture. It is not just about your security. Thanks to the latest set of tools, it is now very easy to understand how you and your vendors implement security and where your data is most vulnerable.
