What Are The Six Pillars?

We build our risk quantification model with six pillars at its core, each pillar representing a category of factors both internal and external to your organization. These pillars consist of industry factors, organizational factors, situational factors, governance standards, application vulnerability, and infrastructure vulnerability.

The product of Maxxsure's risk quantification model is your firm’s own unique M-Score™, a truly comprehensive evaluation of your cyber risk. We accompany the M-Score with detailed drill-down insights into the individual elements that positively and negatively influenced your score so that you can take a fully formed approach to prioritizing your next steps in determining how to mitigate and remediate risk, in addition to evaluating the option of transferring of residual risk through the purchase of cyber risk insurance.
