There are three versions of the dashboard in HighGround - each customised to the role they were designed for.
As such, the CTO dashboard contains the relevant technical data that you need to stay aware of the current risks, threats and users that pose danger to your IT infrastructure.
To learn more about the individual components of your CTO dashboard - browse the tabs below:
The central focus of your dashboard is your CyberScore.
This singular value summarises the overall state of your organisation's Cyber Security. This numerical score ranges from 0-100, and is awarded a rating of Dangerous, Poor, Good, or Excellent accordingly.

Clicking on Score Details will open a detailed breakdown of your CyberScore composition. You can also see an overview of the data retrieved from each technology by clicking on the arrow to the right to expand that field:

Your CyberThreat Level:
Your CyberThreat Level is an indicator of how likely your organisation is to experience a cyber-attack based on real-time data from your cyber security tools and cyber intelligence data about trending attacks, or lack thereof.
CyberThreat Level is provided as a single numerical value ranging from 0 - 138, and is awarded a rating of None, Low, Moderate, High or Critical and accordingly.

Your Active Threats:
Your Active Threats is a consolidated view of the various factors which are affecting your organisations CyberThreat Level.
This enables you to immediately see what you need to focus on and address to improve your CyberThreat Level without having to go digging into other areas of HighGround to find it.
Your Active Risks:
Your Active Risks is a consolidated view of the various factors which are affecting your organisations CyberScore.
This enables you to immediately see what you need to focus on and address to improve your CyberScore without having to go digging into other areas of HighGround to find it.
Your Risky Users:
It is increasingly difficult to stay on top of our cyber security risks and threats, and that is before we add our employees (aka users) into the equation. Without a doubt, users are the riskiest aspect of our organisation’s cyber security and the area which demands the greatest attention.
But far too often, organisations focus on a ‘cart-blanche’ approach to security, hoping that a widely cast net will take care of all eventualities, even though we know this isn’t true. Like water, if there is a way through our security defences, you can be sure a user will find it! And whilst we all have an idea who these users are, it is the ones we don’t think of that we really need to be worried about!
Risky Users in HighGround is a powerful KPI which combines data from various datasets to determine the probability of a user’s riskiness to the organisation based on real data. By pinpointing these users, we can focus our efforts not only on a organisation wife, cart-blanche approach to security, but also on a pinpoint accuracy focus on the users who are most likely to cause a security incident. It’s the best of both worlds!
