Threat-Led Cyber Risk Rating

Orpheus is the only Government-accredited cyber threat intelligence company providing accurate Third Party cyber risk rating.

We have used our expertise to develop a new threat-led approach to cyber risk rating because:

  • All risk management should start with an understanding of threat;
  • Established cyber risk ratings platforms do not currently do so;
  • Combining an understanding of your threats with your vulnerabilities enables fast and effective improvements to your cyber security.

“Cyber risk management techniques define risk as a combination of threat, vulnerability and impact.”

(NCSC Guidance, ‘The Fundamentals of Risk’, 13 December 2017)

The Problem

Most traditional cyber risk rating platforms do not use threat as the starting point in their risk calculations. Instead they focus mainly on an organisations’ vulnerabilities and the possible impacts of a breach, meaning that risk is likely to be miscalculated.

Without a threat-led approach to cyber risk calculation, organisations will fail to identify:

  • supply chain cyber risks
  • partner cyber risk
  • cyber insurance policy risk
  • investment issues
  • client cyber security problems 

The Solution

Orpheus has therefore developed a fundamentally different, threat-led approach to cyber risk rating. 

We combine our unique understanding of the threat to any company with a detailed insight into the current vulnerability of that entity. By doing so we are accurately calculating the likelihood of the entity being victim to a cyber attack.

Because our Cyber Risk Rating Summary reports detail our findings and set out clearly how to reduce the identified vulnerabilities, that means you can stop cyber risks before they happen.
