Case Study: Decision to Remediate Risk

The Client

Global innovation leader in the media streaming platform provider market.

The Challenge

Our client’s high contractual value with other high-profile clients of their own caused concerns amongst the founders. After implementing the Maxxsure M-Score cyber risk management platform, our client was able to identify and quantify the single largest company cyber risk, which was a database technology component with critical vulnerabilities. This component was at the core of their streaming and content provisioning platform.

The Decision

Client CIO and CTO quickly reprioritized their engineering roadmap and spent significant time to re-code their content streaming platform to eliminate the vulnerable database component(s).

The Results

Just 3 months later, a global hacker campaign targeted this exact database component and successfully compromised 15,000+ public internet-facing servers globally across other companies that did not have A) their cyber risk management priorities in order and B) have their technology inventory under adequate control.
