This Is the Reason Behind 70% Of Data Breaches

70% of the data breaches involve the negligence of a 3rd party.

Let’s understand this with Target’s classic example.

In 2013, they were using a contractor, Fazio, to do maintenance of their air conditioning systems.

The hackers got into the Fazio systems and used it as a jumping pod to infiltrate and hack into Target’s infrastructure.

Big companies like Audi and Volkswagen have also suffered such cyberattacks due to 3rd party negligence.

This is a problem we solve at SecurityScorecard.

Before we came into the scene, organizations dealt with security concerns regarding vendors and partners in a very subjective, manual way.

They’d hand over a piece of paper and ask them to fill in their answers.

But with SecurityScorecard, we pioneered how those assessments are done through metrics and readings that provide a complete picture of their cyber risk exposure.
