Business Credit Scores and Ratings

D&B® Cyber Risk Rating

What Is the Cyber Risk Rating?

The new D&B Cyber Risk Rating assesses suppliers’ potential vulnerability to cyber threats on their internet-accessible systems and the likely impact of a breach on their financial health to help protect your organization’s supply chain and better support third-party risk management efforts.

What does the Cyber Risk Rating look like?

The Cyber Risk Rating yields multidimensional outputs which, combined, result in an overall rating for each supplier, providing both an easy overview for portfolio assessment and in-depth view in the event of specific areas of concern.

How Is the Cyber Risk Rating Calculated?

The Cyber Risk Rating is a combination of a review of a company's internet-accessible systems, enhanced with Dun & Bradstreet’s assessment of the likely financial impact of a breach.
