Cyber RIsk Scoring and Mitigation (CRISM)

What is CRISM?

The "Cyber RIsk Scoring and Mitigation (CRISM) tool" measures the security capabilities of the software and hardware that comprise a company’s IT/OT infrastructure and provides a prioritized mitigation plan.

Our Benefits

Built over a platform optimized for vulnerability detection, attack graph analysis, and risk assessment.

Supports diverse network configurations and dynamic scaling.

Provides options to choose among risk assessment models for generating, analysis, evaluation of attack paths based on security requirements & cloud service configuration.

Provides quantitative risk assessment and categorizes attack paths based on the impact of vulnerabilities.

Illustrates the security risk scores via different visual metaphors which allow practitioners to process information at several levels of granularity.
