In 2019 Equifax launched an innovative program in partnership with Elevate Security to prevent incidents by tackling employee risk. By translating available security data into personalized scorecards, Equifax provided each employee & manager visibility into their security posture. Equifax then took the program one step further and tied these scorecards to incentive plans, an approach unique amongst their peers. This approach was highly effective in driving security accountability & reducing risk.
Elevate Security President and Co-founder, Masha Sedova, presented with Equifax VP of Global Security Awareness, Strategy, & Engagement, Yinka Badmus, at FinCyber Today Virtual event hosted by the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) and talked about driving security accountability through data-driven personalization.
