The leader is Security ratings, and risk assessment for cyber security management planning

BitSight is transforming how companies manage information security risk with objective, evidence-based security ratings. Our founders had a simple but profound insight: rather than going deeper into security policies and procedures, instead follow the outside-in model employed by consumer credit rating agencies. This model involves continually collecting and analyzing vast amounts of external data on security behaviors and security policy implementations. No questionnaires are presented, and we perform no intrusive tests on the organization being rated. With this data, our Security Rating Platform derives BitSight Security Ratings that measure a company’s security performance using an empirical, data-driven method.

Microsoft orchestrates coordinated takedown of Necurs botnet

  • 2 months ago
  • Microsoft announced today a coordinated takedown of Necurs, one of the largest spam and malware botnets known to date, believed to have infected more than nine million computers worldwide.
  • The takedown effort came after Microsoft and industry partners broke the Necurs DGA - the botnet's domain generation algorithm, the component that generates random domain names.
  • Necurs authors register DGA-generated domains weeks or months in advance and host the botnet's command-and-control (C&C) servers, where bots (infected computers) connect to receive new commands.
