Microsoft to Rate Corporate Cybersecurity
“Microsoft on Friday will begin grading its commercial customers’ Office 365 security settings in an effort to fortify its software and services that are frequent targets of hackers.
One insurance company, Hartford Financial Services Group Inc., plans to take the security score into account when setting cyberinsurance rates for customers.
No money is changing hands, the companies said. Microsoft declined to say whether it approached other insurance companies to use the dashboard-like service.”
