This brief article is designed to explain the components of the Board Summary page.
Security Posture Summary
The first page of the Board Summary shows a security posture summary for your own organization. This includes a graph of your factor-level grades compared to the average in your industry, your security score history over the past 12 months compared to the average in your industry, and a list of any relevant security events to your organization in the last 12 months (such as a data breach).
Overall Vendor Risk Summary
The second page of the Board Summary shows vendor risk across all portfolios, including your private and shared portfolios. This summary displays the overall vendor risk grade, the number of breaches among all vendors in all portfolios within the past year, and the current number of open critical issues among all vendors across all portfolios. The Performance Trend graphic shows the score distribution of vendors across all portfolios, including their improvement or decline over the past 30 days. The Notable Vendor Security Scores table shows Top Movers – the companies whose letter grades have improved the most over the past 30 days – and Bottom Movers – the companies whose letter grades have declined the most over the past 30 days.
