The reports assess five categories of cyber risk, and unlike simpler, fully automated reports or “scorecards”, each section is reviewed and analyzed by expert intelligence analysts in the LookingGlass Special Investigations Unit.
The Cyber Attack Surface Analysis extends beyond vulnerabilities and network issues to provide real, actionable intelligence on an organization’s risk from threat actors, spear Phishing: The fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers. and possible data breaches.
“Organizations can spend hundreds, and even thousands of hours each year manually assessing their internal policies and those of their vendors,” said Eric Olson, LookingGlass Vice President of Intelligence Operations. “Our reports offer a detailed, measurable and cost-effective way to provide companies an understanding of their internal and external cyber risks.”

- System Compromise or Infection: Identifies evidence of live or recent infection with botnets, viruses and Malware: Software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems. on the client’s or vendor’s network.
- Compromised User Accounts: Identifies account credentials among billions of breached records.
- Vulnerabilities in Externally-Facing Applications: Maps the client’s public facing Internet “footprint” and itemizes the type, number and severity of vulnerabilities available to an outside threat actor.
- Domain Portfolio and Spear Phishing Risk: Analyzes registered domain names for fakes and look-alikes to identify likely vectors for spear phishing.
- Online Indications and Warnings: Examines feeds, posts and online chatter from more than 6,000 known actors and groups, as well as hacker channels and the dark web. Analysts then review any discussions regarding the client’s company, people, systems or accounts.
Offering clients a window into how these five attributes effect their own networks, and those of third party vendors, will enable organizations to quantifiably assess and measure their security posture as threats and information assets continually evolve.
