##Cisco Cloudlock Risk Score
The Cisco Cloudlock Risk Score determines what risk an app presents when installed in an environment, based on three criteria:

  1. The Access Scope Risk Score
  2. The Community Trust Rating
  3. A generalized “Industry Risk Score” produced by the Cisco Cloudlock Cyberlab Team. This Cyberlab performs internal research about the app and the vendor behind it. This includes financial viability, various certifications (such as HIPPA, PCI, etc) and how the cloud service is typically used (e.g. data storage, type of data). The Cyberlab also compares what other vendors have determined about these apps (e.g. Checkpoint, PAN and IBM) based on their own indexes with risk scores for various apps.

The Risk Score classifications are Very Low, Low, Medium, High and Critical.

##Access Scope Risk Score
Apps can have several access scopes, ranging from low to high in terms of riskiness, but the overall Access Scope Risk Score is calculated by totaling the riskiness of all scopes.

##Community Trust Rating (CTR)
The community of Cisco Cloudlock customers with Apps Firewall and their classification of the app as Trusted or Banned determines The Community Trust Rating. Each app starts with a value of 50% and increases if the app is generally trusted, or decreases if the app is frequently banned.
