On March 9, 2023, Interos, one of the leading operational resilience companies creating the world's strongest, safest, and most secure supply chains, announced the introduction of its upgraded cyber risk factor, a part of its i-ScoreTM measurement of operational resilience.
The Interos i-Score is the first of its kind resilience score that assesses the health of extended supply chains against multiple risk factors, such as restriction, financial, geopolitical, operations/catastrophe, ESG, and cyber.
The i-Score update includes an innovative cyber behavior model to detect potentially harmful cyber activity irrespective of public disclosure, commercial cyber ratings, threat assessment (Mitre ATT&CK®), vulnerability information (CVEs), regulatory compliance, cyber events, and operating country issues into a single score.
This advancement directs cyber risk and procurement managers to their multi-tiered vendors most exposed to ransomware, breaches, data leakage, and other cyber-attacks carried out by malicious attackers who target suppliers concealed in the extended global supply chain. Interos's 2022 Resilience study of 1,500 cybersecurity and procurement leaders found that cyber incidents cause supply chain disruptions that cost businesses $37M each year.
Andrea Little Limbago, SVP, Research & Analysis, Interos, said, "This is another crucial step forward in helping organizations achieve operational resilience." She further mentioned, "We've added new, proprietary models that integrate and assess data on cloud-based risk exposure, evaluate anomalous cyber behavior, measure regulatory compliance risks and more. It's designed to deliver better and faster information to CPOs partnering with CISOs — who are increasingly being held accountable for collective cyber resilience — to respond to more frequent and severe supply chain cyberattacks, with enhanced monitoring of vendors and third-party service providers."
