About SecurityScorecard:

SecurityScorecard's SaaS based platform enables enterprises to instantly rate and understand the security risk of companies, non-intrusively and from an outside-in perspective. We use an A-F rating scale. Companies with a C, D or F rating are 5 times more likely to be breached or face compliance penalties than companies with an A or B rating.

Our platform is used by hundreds of customers for use-cases including self monitoring, vendor risk management, cyber insurance, board reporting, and M&A. Headquartered in New York City, we are funded by top investors like Sequoia Capital, Google Ventures, NGP, Moody’s, Intel, and others. Our vision is to create a new language for companies and their partners to communicate, understand, and improve each other’s security posture.

SecurityScorecard was founded in 2013 by two former security leaders, Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy and Sam Kassoumeh, who were respectively, the CISO and Head of Security and Compliance at a large e-commerce retailer, Gilt Groupe. Dr. Yampolskiy, who has a PhD in cryptography, was also the CTO of BlogTalkRadio/Cinchcast and has held lead technology and security roles at Goldman Sachs, Oracle, and Microsoft. Mr. Kassoumeh also led Global Security at Federal-Mogul and has over ten years of cybersecurity experience. Together they were perplexed at the lack of visibility into risks involved in both their own environment and those who they needed to trust with sensitive information in order to conduct business. They wanted to find a way to see what hackers see.
