Empired launches cybersecurity user score solution

Perth-based IT service management company Empired has launched a new solution designed to give enterprise customers visibility into each employee’s cybersecurity posture.

The Empired User Score solution for Microsoft Teams provides real-time insight into individual users’ security behaviours including scores, ranking and suggestions for improvement.

The system queries Microsoft Teams data and other APIs and then calculates a user secure score for a set of security measures and controls. The individual score is then presented to the user in Teams alongside averages for their teams and the entire organisation.

The app also provides the user with a list of recommendations for improving their personal security score, including step-by-step instructions on implementing controls.

Empired Group GM for Modern Work and Digital Darren Christophersen said research indicates that human error causes 93% of all cybersecurity incidents and 84% of all breaches.

“The question for organisations shouldn’t be how to stop hackers getting into staff devices, it should be how to train their staff to treat their devices like they’re the keys to the company safe. And the answer is not simply more education or training. While the training may be successfully delivered, there is no way to tell if it is understood and acted upon, or if the risk profile is decreasing," he said.

“Empired manages the Empired User Secure Score app as a service, implemented in a dedicated Microsoft Azure subscription in the data centre of the organisation’s choice. As part of the service, Empired will continually add new measures and manage the underlying data structure.”
