Moody’s Investors Service says it will start considering companies’ ability to detect and defend against cyberattacks when determining credit ratings. “While we do not explicitly incorporate cyberrisk as a principal credit factor today, our fundamental credit analysis incorporates numerous stress-testing scenarios, and a cyberevent could be the trigger for one of those scenarios,” Associate Managing Director Jim Hempstead said. “As cyberrisk becomes more pervasive, it will take a higher priority within our analysis.”  ThinkAdvisor (11/24)
