Your Security Score

Your security score is a measure of your organization's commitment to cybersecurity and is based on three primary areas: Audit, Tools, and Education.


The audit portion of your score is calculated based on several factors:

  • The number of audits your organization has undergone. More audits typically indicate a higher commitment to security.
  • The time since your last audit. Regular audits demonstrate a continued focus on maintaining secure systems.
  • How you handle findings from audits. Resolving findings quickly and thoroughly contributes positively to your score, while unresolved or unacknowledged findings can lower your score.
  • How often critical findings appear in your audits. If you have consistently had audits with no critical findings, it demonstrates a mature security posture which enhances your score.


The tools portion of your score is influenced by:

  • The number of security products you use. Using more security tools shows a greater investment in cybersecurity.
  • The relevance of the security products you use. Your score can be positively impacted if you are using products that are relevant to your specific needs.
  • The impact of the security products you use. Using security products that have a high impact on your cybersecurity health contributes positively to your score.


The education portion of your score is based on:

  1. The number of security awareness sessions your team has attended. Regular participation in these sessions indicates a commitment to cybersecurity knowledge.
  2. The variety of security sessions completed. Attending a variety of sessions suggests a comprehensive approach to security education.
  3. The rate of employee participation in these sessions. Higher participation rates demonstrate a company-wide commitment to security education.

Please note that all these components play a vital role in the calculation of your security score. By focusing on these areas, you can take concrete actions to improve your organization's overall security posture and your security score.
