Unisys Launches Analytics-Based Managed Service for Cyber Risk Assessment; Jonathan Goldberger Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventUnisys has unveiled at the Black Hat USA 2018 conference a subscription-based managed service that works to leverage analytics to help security professionals assess an organization's cybersecurity posture and evaluate cyber threats in financial terms.

TrustCheck is built to perform cyber risk assessments through Secure Systems Innovation Corp.'s patented X-Analytics model used by cyber insurance firms, Unisys said Wednesday.

Jonathan Goldberger, vice president of security solutions at Unisys, said the company's TrustCheck service works to help organizations align security programs with their business strategies.

Speaking with ExecutiveBiz Wednesday, Goldberger elaborated, “TrustCheck helps organizations measure cyber risk using X-Analytics, a risk analytics engine used by cyber insurers for underwriting, to objectively quantify their threat landscape, the potential impact of these threats and the effectiveness of the organization's security controls”

“The results highlight how much risk the organization is actually taking on, along with prioritized guidance on how to add or change security controls to mitigate the risk. As a subscription-based service, TrustCheck uses a standard methodology to provide insights that can be compared over time,” he added.

TrustCheck is designed to help security teams supplement gap evaluation data with threat analysis and security controls; determine the probability of a financial loss related to cyber threats; relay risk-reduction strategies to the board; and prioritize risk-mitigation initiatives.
