Third Party Supply Chain Risk Management

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

“Even if an organisation has excellent cyber security, there can be no guarantee that the same standards are applied by contractors and third party suppliers in the supply chain. Attackers will target the most vulnerable part of a supply chain to reach their intended victim.”  (UK National Cyber Security Centre”)

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.” (UK National Cyber Security Centre)


The Problem

Supply chain security has never been so important. Adversaries are increasingly targeting your third parties as a component of your attack surface because they are usually less protected, and because increasingly your third parties have access to your data, your systems or their compromise will result in disruption to your business.

Because supply chains provide a weak link for hackers to exploit, your cyber risk profile is also being reviewed by your customers and partners to see whether you present a risk to their business – using tools such as the Orpheus platform to do so

Most traditional cyber risk rating dashboards 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

A scalable, cloud based subscription to the industry’s most comprehensive Cyber Risk Management platform. 

Orpheus has developed a fundamentally different, threat intelligence 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.

Our dashboard allows you to:

  • add multiple organisations to monitor their cyber risk ratings 
  • view changes in each entity 
  • view, print and share summary reports for all organisations 
  • be aligned to the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre’s Principles of Supply Chain Security
