Using BitSight Security Ratings to Ensure Cyber Hygiene

Bryana Dacri | March 24, 2017

Last week, one of BitSight’s board members, Venky Ganesan of Menlo Ventures, gave a testimony to the Senate Commerce Committee on “The Promises and Perils of Emerging Technologies for Cybersecurity”. Watch his testimony here.

Ganesan provided five recommendations that the federal government can do to win the cyber war. He suggested that the government help drive market solutions by setting standards around cyber hygiene. The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a great first step, but Ganesan recommends that NIST update the framework periodically and develop test guidelines to objectively compare all security products against. Making sure that there is a secure framework for IoT will be critical for adoption.

“In cybersecurity, we are only as strong as our weakest link so it is imperative that we create incentives for industry participants to practice cyber hygiene.” - Venky Ganesan, Menlo Ventures

Watch the clip below to hear Ganesan explain how using BitSight’s Security Ratings can give visibility into a company or industry's cyber hygiene.

To learn more about how BitSight Security Ratings can help measure how well your organization or business partners align to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, download our datasheet or watch this video.
