BitSight - Third Annual Insights Industry Benchmark Report - Are Energy and Utilities at Risk of a Major Breach?
Major breaches have affected companies and organizations across all sectors of the US economy from retail to healthcare, finance and government. As security leaders search for key performance indicators, industry metrics can serve as important benchmarks for understanding the performance of an organization and its portfolio of vendors.
Recognizing the growing importance of understanding cyber security posture, BitSight is publishing the Third Annual Industry Benchmarking Report. In this report, BitSight analyzed the security performance of six key industry sectors: Finance, Federal Government, Retail, Energy/Utilities, Healthcare and Education. These industries hold diverse types of data that are sensitive and valuable - especially to attackers. BitSight uses its proprietary Security Ratings algorithm, which takes into account diverse security metrics on events, diligence and user behaviors in order to derive aggregate industry metrics.
