Join John Pescatore and Michael Roling where they'll discuss how The Chief Information Security Officer State of Missouri, Office of Administration uses BitSight Technologies Security Rating services as a key input in assuring that third party State of Missouri suppliers and partners that will handle sensitive information are secure enough to keep that information safe. The Security Rating scores are monitored against thresholds that trigger potential investigation or re-certification of suppliers. The use of the BitSight services increases the depth of State of Missouri's risk assessment and decreasing the time spent approving and recertifying key suppliers.
