'RiskRater' - Online risk assessment tool by Rapid7

Rapid7 has come up with a risk assessment tool named 'RiskRater'. It's a free online tool that assess your mobile, endpoint and user-based risk management programs. The tool aims to bring to your attention areas that need work in a prioritized order. Of all the tasks you could do to improve your organization's overall security, which should you do first? Some are more valuable to do before others, and RiskRater will help you identify what they are. It shows a number of questions for each of three categories (endpoint, mobile, and user), and calculates a score from 1-10 based on your answers. The scoring is determined based on an algorithm and then mapped against benchmarks. The benchmark is based on data collected from Rapid7’s own research and from responses provided by over 600 organizations. <more>
