Achilles Collaborates With Orpheus To Provide Supply Chain Cyber Risk Management And Intelligence
Achilles Information, a global leader and preferred partner for supply chain risk and performance management, has announced a partnership with Orpheus, a UK Government-approved cyber threat intelligence firm.
Below are some of the highlights of the pilot scheme:
• Achilles will have cyber risk ratings on suppliers in collaboration with Orpheus and will share these ratings with Achilles network buyers and suppliers.
• Suppliers will reduce their cyber risk by subscribing to Orpheus’ monthly cyber risk rating reports and taking action on the highlighted attack surface issues on their network, and Achilles customers can get discounted subscription rates.
• Buyers may now have the option of receiving a personalized supply chain cyber risk assessment report on their preferred supply chain, which will provide them with detailed information on the potential challenges and risks they may face.
Cyber risk is on the rise, with attackers looking to take advantage of weak third-party cybersecurity to attack more protected targets. Furthermore, as organizations begin to have remote employees, the number of weak points from which a cyber-attack could be conducted grows.
Katie Tamblin, Achilles’ Chief Product Officer, said:
“Recent examples of sophisticated cyber-attacks show that even the biggest buyer’s cybersecurity is just as strong as their worst supply chain provider.” We understand that this is a complex, ever-changing landscape in which our customers need real-time, accurate, and dependable advice, so we’ve partnered with Orpheus, the only provider of cyber risk ratings with UK Government accreditation. Continuous surveillance is crucial for successful cyber defense as we all know. Our customers will be able to make decisions based on the best, market-leading intelligence thanks to the cyber risk scores offered on the Achilles platform. I’m interested in partnering with the Orpheus team to see what they can do for customers.”
The CEO of Orpheus, Oliver Church, commented:
“Companies have increased using cyber risk ratings to manage the risk involved with third parties. Our collaboration with Achilles gives their clients a better understanding of the cyber risk posed by their supply chain. Our cyber risk ratings, which are based on award-winning machine learning, reflect the vulnerability and threat level that companies face. We’re excited to work with Achilles and their customers to help them become more secure.”
