San Francisco – Nov. 7, 2017 – RiskIQ, a leader in digital threat management, today announced that the company believes that its approach to automating attack surface reduction and targeted attack protection aligns to technical guidance offered in Forrester Research’s new November 2017 report, “Assess Your Digital Risk Protection Maturity.” To address the increase in web, social, and mobile external threats, the new Forrester Digital Risk Protection Maturity framework was designed to help enterprises identify gaps and next steps toward mitigating digital risk with the appropriate oversight, people, process, and technology.
RiskIQ is pleased to offer the Forrester report to organizations for download.
As companies continue to invest in their digital presence to better engage with customers and enhance their products and ecosystem, they often lose sight of the inherent risks of this digital business transformation. Cyberthreat actors are taking advantage of lax security oversight across a business’s web, social, and mobile assets. Without proper governance and technical controls, an organization’s operations, employees, consumers, and brands are susceptible.
The Forrester report asserts that too many companies are underprepared and ill-equipped, with major strategic and operational gaps in their digital risk protection (DRP) efforts. In large part, this is because:
According to the Forrester report, “From massive botnets to frequent account takeovers, brand impersonations, and continued weaponization of social, mobile, and web channels, security and risk pros are inundated with new digital risks. Rapid proliferation of digital channels generates a massive, chaotic digital footprint, a burgeoning digital attack surface, and diminished control to protect critical digital assets and channels.”
Forrester says that a company’s “digital risk protection objectives must shift to address digital risk from prevention to detection and response.” The three steps to achieving this include:
Among the four digital risk protection capability domains referenced in the report, Forrester notes: “Technology enhances techniques to analyze data and automate mitigating actions. This domain describes the technical capabilities to access, aggregate, and analyze data from disparate digital channels and other sources to discover and monitor a firm’s digital risk exposure. It also details the capabilities to detect, measure, and mitigate digital risk events using advanced risk analytics and process automation.”
In Q2 2017, RiskIQ research revealed:
RiskIQ helps organizations accelerate technical capabilities and progress their digital risk maturity through its enterprise-class Digital Threat Management Platform – a SaaS-based threat intelligence and integrated application suite that addresses broad digital risks across web, social, and mobile channels. RiskIQ provides the insight, automation, and protection needed to understand digital footprint exposures, expedite threat investigation and monitoring, and preempt and protect against targeted external attacks.
“Cyberthreats, data privacy and business reputation have reached the boardroom where the CIO must demonstrate due diligence and investment towards reducing digital risk. Operationally, this means empowering security with resources and capacity to execute a digital threat protection strategy,” said Lou Manousos, CEO and founder at RiskIQ. “RiskIQ extends security outside the firewall by delivering the insight and automation necessary to efficiently identify, understand, and protect against external threats.”
