Stephen Boyer of BitSight on His New Model for Grading Security

Imagine if an organization received a cybersecurity rating - just like an individual receives an objective credit report. This is the new model promoted by Stephen Boyer and his company, BitSight.

The industry is prime for such ratings, and they can become competitive differentiators for organizations.

In a video interview recorded at RSA Conference 2014, Boyer discusses:

BitSight's unique rating system;
Why there is a need for cyber ratings;
Whether cybersecurity should be federally regulated, like air traffic.
Boyer is the CTO, co-founder, and board member of BitSight Technologies. Previously, he has worked at Saperix, Lincoln Lab, and Caldera.
