CISA creates tools and services list to aid cyber protection for firms

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has compiled a list of free cybersecurity tools and services to help companies cut risk and boost resilience.

According to Security Week, this list involves open-source tools and free resources provided by various private firms and government organisations. The organisation plans on continuously updating the list and will create a process for third-parties to submit other resources for inclusion.

The publication added that tools and services focus on helping organisations reduce the likelihood of a damaging cyber incident, quickly detect malicious activity, maximise resilience and respond to incidents.

The list currently offers over 100 tools and services, such as ones offered by CISA, Cloudfare, Cisco, Center for Internet Security, Tenable, IBM, Mandiant, Splunk, Palo Alto Networks and Google.

CISA called on organisations to fix known high-risk vulnerabilities, replace unsupported products and implement multifactor authentication before turning to these free tools and services. Organisations are also able to sign up for CISA’s Cyber Hygiene Vulnerability Scanning, which involves vulnerability scans and the delivery of weekly reports.
