Security ratings or cybersecurity ratings are data-driven, objective and complex assessments of an organization's security status. They are created by a trustworthy, unbiased security rating platform that makes them valuable as an objective measure of the cyber security performance of the organization.
Much as credit ratings and FICO ratings aim to provide a quantitative measure of credit risk, security ratings aim to provide a quantitative measure of cyber risk.
The higher the security rating, the better the security status of the company.
