Silicon Valley analytic software firm FICO today announced a strategic alliance with enterprise security firm TSC Advantage that will help companies better assess their risk exposure and prevent cyber attacks by improving security posture across all business functions. The partnership combines the FICO® Enterprise Security Score, which quantifies the risk of a debilitating security event, with the TSC Advantage Secure Halo assessment, which reveals vulnerabilities across six major risk domains, including insider threat and third-party relationships.

The combination of FICO's empirically derived security score with Secure Halo's control-based assessment provides a uniquely comprehensive view of cybersecurity risk posture. The FICO® Enterprise Security Score helps clients predict their likelihood of a breach, and Secure Halo Domain Risk Profile reveals security gaps and provides a roadmap for strategic investments. This objective assessment is particularly useful for clients that want to purchase cyber insurance, meet regulatory requirements or have increased visibility of cyber risk across their portfolio or supply chain.
"We're on the front line of cyber threat trends, through 10 years of federal government cyber security support and our team's backgrounds in U.S. intelligence, national security, military and IT security," said Sean Doherty, president of TSC Advantage. "Threats like the explosion of ransomware and the exploitation of third-party weaknesses are not static. To defend valuable data and information assets against dynamic attacks, organizations must quickly detect breaches as well as identify risk across multiple enterprise domains, particularly from trusted insiders and external business dependencies."
"Predictive analytics play a critical role in assessing the current state of cybersecurity factors, how these factors are managed over time, and how they correlate to past breaches at other institutions," said Doug Clare, vice president of cyber security solutions at FICO. "Organizations around the world are trying to understand their security risk exposure — we provide the answer in a clear, concise score. With TSC Advantage, we give businesses critical information they need to shore up defenses."
