Pro Insight: Are Network Risk and Identity Risk Score related? Follow
The Identity Risk Score is a comprehensive risk score on a scale of 0 - 500 that is calculated in real time combining authoritative data (match statuses, metadata, linkages) from the Ekata Identity Graph as well as usage patterns of elements in the Ekata Identity Network.
Because Network Risk is a machine learning prediction derived from the Ekata Identity Network, and because the Identity Risk Score takes into consideration data from both the Ekata Identity Graph as well as the Ekata Identity Network, Network Risk will always influence the Identity Risk Score.
However, this does not mean Network Risk and the Identity Risk Score will always align.
It is possible, for example, that Network Risk is Low or Medium but the Identity Risk Score is High. Typically, this suggests that network risk signals were mostly positive, but collectively did not have enough weight to derisk the identity given other more impactful, negative identity risk signals.
