The Global Cyber Alliance has released two free, new tools to help organizations fight cybersecurity risks through their websites and email.
With GCA McScrapy, organizations can lock down their websites, removing potential security issues from third-party services and unnecessary functionality. GCA DMarc Risk Scanner lets organizations see if critical partners, such as trading partners or supply chain, are protecting their own email domains from being spoofed or phished.
“Reducing risk is the best cyber defense,” said Philip Reitinger, president and CEO of the Global Cyber Alliance. “Among the most popular open doors that cyber criminals exploit are phishing attacks and compromise of an organization’s website. The tools we released today are designed to help stop these attacks and prevent loss to businesses.”
GCA McScrapy is particularly useful for mitigating the risks of content managed systems such as WordPress, which 60 percent of sites are designed upon. It converts a website into a set of static files, removing unnecessary functionality. Using a static website nullifies many concerns of cross-site scripting and SQL injection since there is no communication with the website’s content management system for dynamic content.
GCA DMARC Risk Scanner can be used to scan hundreds of domains at one time to determine the level of DMARC and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) protections used by an organization’s partners, including the third parties with whom it works, its supply chain, and its trading partners.
