The Wisr platform constantly monitors global data feeds – from news, cyber breaches, social media, financial data, weather patterns and more – and turns this data into actionable insights.
Hackers and criminals change their attack vectors quickly and based on local and global events. Wisr unlocks the insights you need from global data sources to manage and monitor cyber risk across your vendor network.
By constantly monitoring changes in cyber breaches, hacks and more, coupled with changes in the external environment, Wisr provides you risk assessments to prioritize the inherent risk from your vendor and supply chain partners.
Our artificial intelligence and neural network platform creates firmographic "fingerprints" to profile cyber breaches and pattern match changing global conditions to provide early warning and risk profiles for your vendors.
Wisr keeps track of breach profiles and provides AI-driven analysis for your organization and vendor partners, with automated recommendations on how to improve protection and remediate risk.
To avoid further increases in cyber attacks, it’s clear that the energy sector must commit to improving its current security measures as it moves into 2021 and beyond. They must better understand cyber risks and how to mitigate them, better champion their own security culture, and invest in platforms that provide robust threat intelligence to support them.
