Black Kite vs. The Competition See the Difference →

Identifying Cyber Risk for Financial Institutions

High liability. Increasing regulations & exposure. Limited resources. Let Black Kite provide the quality data you need.

We’re responsible for people’s livelihoods. One breach could mean someone not getting their paycheck that day. Not being able to provide for their family. What’s more time-sensitive and critical than that? We need Black Kite to alert us to what we can’t see.

automate manual processes

1. Automate Manual Processes

Stop worrying about limited manpower and budget. By continually identifying gaps and prioritizing remediation efforts where exposure is highest, your security team can now effectively remove blind spots. Alongside an evolving threat landscape that requires greater focus and resources on early detection and response, Black Kite makes the arduous process of assessing hundreds to thousands of third parties – simple.

cross correlate findings to industry standards

2. Cross Correlate Findings to Industry Standards

Black Kite correlates cyber risk findings to industry standards and best practices. The classification allows you to measure the compliance level of any company for different regulations and standards, including NIST 800-53, ISO27001, PCI-DSS, NCUA, CFPB, FFEIC, CCPA, NYDFS, Data Privacy Regulations and others. The cross-correlation capability measures the compliance level of a target company based on the standard input, saving time and effort for both you and your vendors. Black Kite’s advanced AI algorithm then estimates the compliance level for the other regulations/frameworks using prior compliance standards.

quality insight and accurate data

3. Quality Insight & Accurate Data – The First Time

Defensible, clear-cut data with minimal false positives. Black Kite’s platform was built to provide full visibility into a vendor’s cyber position, using the same open-source intelligence tools and techniques hackers use. Our methodology follows and applies commonly-used frameworks developed by the MITRE Corporation for scoring software weaknesses in a consistent, flexible, and transparent manner, converting highly technical terms into business language for executives.
