Security Rating Service (SRS)


Security Rating Service (SRS)

A security rating service (SRS) performs an independent assessment of an organization’s security posture based on third party data from threat intelligence feeds. These feeds consider externally observable and safety factors based on publicly available information.

The rating is designed for general guidance relative to the security posture of other organizations. An SRS is not typically used for a deep security test and it doesn’t replace attack surface management. In saying so, it’s a fast, consistent, and valuable method for receiving a high-level number suited to comparisons with other organizations.
