Achilles Information, global leader and partner of choice for supply chain risk and performance management, is to partner with Orpheus, UK Government accredited cyber threat intelligence company.
Highlights of the pilot scheme include:
Cyber risk is increasing significantly, with adversaries looking to exploit poor third party cyber security as a means of attacking more protected targets. In addition, as organisations continue to have employees working remotely, the number of points of weakness through which a cyber-attack could be launched, increases.
Katie Tamblin, Chief Product Officer at Achilles, commented:
“Recent examples of sophisticated cyber-attacks demonstrate that the cyber security of even the biggest buyer is only as strong as their weakest supplier in their supply chain. We know that this is a complex, constantly changing landscape that our customers need real-time, accurate and robust advice on, and so we’ve partnered with Orpheus, the only provider of cyber risk ratings with UK Government accreditation.
“We know that ongoing monitoring is critical to effective cyber security. These cyber risk ratings provided on the Achilles’ platform will enable our customers to be confident they are making decisions based on best, market leading intelligence. I’m looking forward to working with the team at Orpheus and seeing the considerable value they can bring to customers.”
Oliver Church, CEO Orpheus, commented;
“Cyber risk ratings are becoming an integral way for companies to manage the risk associated with third-parties. Our partnership with Achilles provides their customers with increased oversight of the cyber risk they face from their supply chain. Our cyber risk ratings focus on the vulnerability and the threat level companies face, backed up with award-winning machine learning. We are excited to partner with Achilles and their customers, to help make them more secure.”
