CyberScore™ offers affordable and fully automated cyber security assessments and remediation reporting for you, your customers and your supply chain – giving you actionable vulnerability intelligence.
CyberScore™ shows organisations, big and small, how vulnerable they are to common forms of cyber-attack, such as ransomware, data loss or business interruption. This is presented as a peer-rated score, which can be tracked over time as security improvements are made, or as the organisation makes changes to its systems. 
CyberScore™ offers an easy-to-interpret view of internal and external security status based upon empirical.  Get Well Plans and Technical Reports are provided to help organisations address their most pressing vulnerabilities, and compliance with the UK Cyber Essentials Schemes can also be assessed. Get Well Plans can be disseminated internally or issued to service providers.
CyberScore™ also allows an organisation to view the security posture of the organisations within its supply chain or, if appropriate, its customer base. Subsidiaries, suppliers and other third parties can be invited to share their results, in order to provide assurance that they are addressing cyber risks. Supply Chain operators can set standards and view third party performance via dashboards, reports and scorecards. When new vulnerabilities emerge, supply chain operators can quickly assess their potential exposure and can intervene by offering guidance for the mitigation of new threats.
CyberScore has been developed by XQ Cyber. Their founders are leading members of the UK defence and security community, who believe that cyber-security should deliver much greater value, for organisations of every size, at an affordable price.
