Security and risk management (SRM) leaders are under increasing pressure to both reduce risk and demonstrate and communicate the value, effectiveness, and maturity of their security program to a broad range of stakeholders with differing and evolving expectations. This includes board members who, after years of receiving quarterly reports on cybersecurity, are now asking for improved reporting on the value of security programs that provides them with a deeper understanding of their current risk posture and areas of higher risk.

Providing actionable risk insights has been difficult if not impossible for InfoSec teams, as this level of visibility isn’t realistic with the single risk register approach offered by traditional Governance, Compliance, and Risk (GRC) and Information Technology Risk Management (ITRM) tools.

But that all changes today — with Reciprocity’s new product suite built on the Reciprocity ROAR Platform.

Reciprocity ROAR Platform

The Reciprocity ROAR Platform is a game-changer, introducing an entirely new approach to IT risk management by breaking down the silos between compliance and risk and providing a real-time view of risk within the context of business activities that empowers InfoSec teams with the actionable insights they need to avoid and mitigate risk and optimize security.

The Reciprocity ROAR (Risk Observation, Assessment, and Remediation) Platform enables companies to create cyber assurance programs around critical business processes, assets, or initiatives. This provides the flexibility to choose the right mix of frameworks, risk registers, scoring methodologies, and vendor scores to get a specific and accurate risk assessment to help guide strategic decisions. The result: organizations can more easily and efficiently protect their most valuable assets, quantify the value of security investments, accelerate business initiatives, and effectively inform leadership on the levels of risk and improvements.

Insight + Intelligence + Automation

The Reciprocity ROAR Platform combines insight, intelligence, and automation to deliver a unified user experience while reducing complexity and driving efficiency. Using an AI-powered approach, the platform integrates IT and cyber risk activities, providing clear context into your risk posture. Continuous monitoring of your controls helps you stay ahead of threats by keeping your team connected and informed through proactive notifications.

The Platform delivers prescriptive guidance to help you select the right mix of requirements and pre-loaded content, within a single, unified solution. The result is optimized evidence, control, and data re-use which reduces the complexity and resources required for your effective risk management.

The Platform’s AI engine automatically builds relationships among business assets and processes, controls, and risks to intelligently deliver automated risk posture as well as maximize re-use, while continuously monitoring for any changes that can negatively impact that risk posture and delivering recommendations for treatment plans. Workflows within the Platform are automatically initiated when your programs are defined, and integrations to leading business systems provide automatic information access. This pervasive automation enables you to take effective action fast, driving efficiency and maximizing your team’s talent.

Powerful Cyber Risk Applications

The Reciprocity ROAR Platform powers the company’s new suite of advanced risk and compliance applications to deliver integrated building blocks for cyber assurance programs.

The Reciprocity ZenComply application strengthens the role of compliance in your security program, providing a fast, prescriptive, content-rich experience that brings together expert guidance, automation, and intelligent collaboration. The AI-powered backend maps 10,000+ content objects across frameworks, threats, and risk registers, automating calculations and building key relationships.

The Reciprocity ZenRisk application provides actionable insights within the context of your business priorities to help you effectively avoid and mitigate IT and cyber risk. With expert-provided content, predefined scoring methodologies and mapped controls, risk and threats, along with continuous scoring of residual risk, your team can stay ahead of threats and prioritize activities to drive business results while optimizing security.

Actionable Insight

Unlike typical risk solutions that only provide a single, high-level view of risk, the ZenRisk and ZenComply applications use the ROAR platform to provide two levels of actionable insight, the overall risk posture of your business and detailed risk insight at the business program level. At the program level, you can take direct action on what is increasing or decreasing your exposure and understand how changes in one aspect of your business may impact others that share controls and risks.

With dual-level insights, you can communicate risk in business context with the details at hand, to make smart decisions that reduce exposure, protect your information and secure your business.
