SecurityScorecard — the global leader in security ratings founded in 2013 by security and risk experts Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy and Sam Kassoumeh — announced that it has signed a partnership with Craft. Craft is an enterprise intelligence provider that integrates data from both SecurityScorecard and Craft into their respective offerings. And this will enhance their abilities to meet the needs of supply chain customers that are looking for a 360-degree view of risk — which includes both cybersecurity and credit risk.

This partnership will integrate SecurityScorecard’s Security Ratings into Craft’s enterprise intelligence platform, offering deep insights into the cyber risk associated with any company that Craft’s customers are tracking. And in addition, SecurityScorecard will be receiving a number of complimentary data sets from Craft that speak to tangential areas of risk, which will be integrated into the SecurityScorecard platform.

Both of the companies see this partnership and the enhancement to their respective supply chain offerings as timely given the increased focus on the security of the supply chain. And with the recent health and economic struggles, there have been numerous failures across supply chains — which are translating into disruptions and shutdowns for businesses. And the increased remote environment has pushed companies to move all communication and collaboration to online forums, further elevating the importance of cyber-specific supply chain risk.

With more than 1.4 million companies rated, SecurityScorecard is the global industry leader in security ratings. And SecurityScorecard collects and analyzes global threat signals that allows organizations to have instant visibility into the security posture of vendors and business partners as well as the capability to do a self-assessment of their own security posture. Plus the technology continuously monitors 10 groups of risk factors to instantly deliver an easy-to-understand A-F rating.
