JupiterOne Celebrates Cybersecurity Awareness Month with Pre-Release of New Capability, MySecurity

JupiterOne announced the pre-release of MySecurity, an innovative offering to make security more actionable by giving employees insight into how they are specifically contributing to, or impacting, the security posture of an organization.

In celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, JupiterOne is embracing the National Cybersecurity Alliance's theme of "See Yourself in Cyber," demonstrating that while cybersecurity is a complex topic, people remain the most important element. JupiterOne's MySecurity offering adopts this theme to provide employees within customer organizations with a 360-degree view of their cyber assets, such as user IDs, accounts, and access granted to third-party vendors. It will also provide information on password security scores and security training course status through integrations with security solutions. MySecurity will provide visibility into the code repositories that developers contribute to and their vulnerability findings. With MySecurity, all employees can make informed decisions to reduce risky behavior by better understanding what they are given access to and the risks involved.

As organizations adopt remote work environments, they must elevate their security culture by changing their traditional approaches to security awareness training for employees. However, the effectiveness of such training can vary based on format, channel, and frequency. It is not enough to protect against security threats, reduce risk, or improve an organization's security posture by itself. According to the most recent Microsoft Digital Defense Report, "while most industries made the shift to remote work due to the pandemic, it created new attack surfaces for cybercriminals to take advantage of, such as home devices being used for business purposes," which can contribute to organizations facing a significant insider threat.

MySecurity will leverage the foundation of JupiterOne's cyber asset visibility and attack surface management to provide insights along with a consumable dashboard that summarizes each user's security health and asset ownership within their environment, powered by the JupiterOne platform. Employees responsible for software development can properly prioritize security findings and defects in their code repositories, ultimately helping reduce tech debt and risk.

By heightening awareness, actions, and accountability to all employees within an organization, MySecurity reinforces the shared responsibility model of security.  Every employee, regardless of role, from intern to developer to executive, can now take true ownership and accountability for securing their environment's assets.

According to the Verizon 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), "This year 82 percent of breaches involved the human element. Whether it is the use of stolen credentials, phishing, misuse, or simply an error, people continue to play a very large role in incidents and breaches alike."

MySecurity will become an innovative layer of the JupiterOne platform to improve traditional security awareness approaches by intuitively helping individuals understand their cyber asset attack surface, identify their security blind spots, and actively improve their organization's security posture. It will also provide a new channel for security teams to encourage the awareness and adoption of new, strategic security processes in a shared responsibility model that will further strengthen the organization's security posture.

With the pre-release of MySecurity, JupiterOne continues its mission to simplify security and make it attainable for individuals and organizations. To learn more about MySecurity, schedule a demo here.
