Cyber Verify Rating System
The Cyber Verify evaluates many different aspects of a company’s service delivery, paying particular attention to security. Cyber Verify evaluates internal service delivery security practices, business continuity of the provider, cyber insurance usage, and many other characteristics, which are important in the evaluation process of customers seeking out professional and secure providers.
Cyber Verify applies the following rating system:
● AAA – evaluates the provider’s cyber security practices on a 3-12 month period of review
● AA – evaluates the provider’s cyber security practices on a particular day
● A – evaluates the provider’s cyber security practices based on a thorough and in-depth self-attestation examination.
Cyber Verify must be renewed annually. The Cyber Verify is a first in the industry and specifically designed for outsourced service providers and the customers they service.
