This document describes the step-by-step procedure to find reasons for the change in the SAFE score of technology assets.

SAFE continuously assesses the onboarded assets under technology, and the asset's SAFE score changes with time as per the assessment results. On the asset details page, users can find the current SAFE score and the score's historical trend in a continuous graph. SAFE also allows you to find the reasons for the change in score between two dates using SAFE REST APIs.
