What is f:CEL?

Wouldn’t you like to know how cybercriminals see your organisation?

f:CEL assesses your overall risk of being attacked or breached based on how attractive you look to a criminal using reconnaissance techniques used by real cybercriminal groups when they are choosing a target to attack.

The findings are displayed to you as a Falanx Cyber Exposure Level score. The f:CEL score comprises three elements:

Digital Risk

How secure is your website, and is there information on the Dark Web that could be used to target you?

External IP Risk

How secure are your public-facing servers?

Organisational Risk

How much do you do operationally to minimise your risk of attack?

You will receive a report with your overall score, the vulnerabilities that were discovered, and our recommendations for how to fix them and improve your score. Following the initial sign-up report, f:CEL is then performed regularly so that a business can keep track of its security posture.

f:CEL can also be used to assess your key suppliers to ensure that they are not introducing an unacceptable level of cyber risk to your business.
