Threat intelligence provides valuable insight into contextual business risk. You can gain insight into threat actors targeting your industry or information from your organization located on the Dark Web. According to one report, 79% of security professionals find threat data feeds essential to their organization’s cybersecurity posture. Additionally, 63% of respondents noted that they use feeds to ensure a better defense. Problematically, the threat intelligence feeds often give organizations too much information, which makes it difficult to identify useful data.

Whether you’re in security operations, IT service management, compliance, or vendor risk management, integrating threat intelligence from our partners to your Scorecards brings you even more visibility into risk in your ecosystem, so you can stay ahead of threats and drive cyber resilience in your organization.

SecurityScorecard + CSC

The recent surge in COVID-19 related domain fraud highlights the need for an enterprise-class domain registration and monitoring solution. The most damaging attacks today such as ransomware, business email compromise (BEC), impersonation fraud, and network breaches start with phishing attacks that often leverage a compromised domain name via a domain registrar breach, a fraudulent look-alike domain, spoofing of email headers or an email account take over. SecurityScorecard’s partnership with CSC, the leading domain name registrar, gives organizations better insight into domain-based fraud threats. CSC’s data gives you visibility into domain security and domain registrar risks that can lead to phishing attacks and brand abuse.

CSC data is integrated into Scorecards under DNS Health as an information signal. This brings you visibility into Domain Name System (DNS) manipulation risks by monitoring and mitigating risks associated with:

  • Domain name

  • Subdomain hijacking

  • Domain spoofing

  • Domain shadowing

SecurityScorecard + CybelAngel

Nearly 60% of businesses have experienced a major data breach caused by a third party. Root causes are diverse: leaking data from misconfigured cloud buckets, PII records on unprotected file servers, source code on unsecured public repositories, or credentials exposed on the dark web. In all cases, when critical information is breached your business, brand and reputation are damaged. SecurityScorecard’s partnership with CybelAngel gives organizations insight into data exposed from across their ecosystems. CybelAngel’s data gives you an aggregated view of exposed, publicly available information across various layers of the internet and their team works with you to take charge of leaked data before it gets into the wrong hands.

SecurityScorecard + HackNotice

Cybercrime has been on the rise for decades, evolving into a digital economy for criminals that profit from selling and sharing user data on the dark web every day. Modern threat intelligence has also evolved beyond passive credential monitoring to a more proactive approach: researchers gain entry into hacker forums, make relationships with hackers, and access a large collection of coveted data. Once a researcher has access to data, they can analyze where the data came from and use proprietary machine-learning tagging to mark any stolen data.

SecurityScorecard’s partnership with HackNotice, a provider of real-time threat intelligence alerts, helps users protect their digital identities with around-the-clock monitoring of a quarter of a billion records each day. HackNotice scours the dark web to alert employees of vulnerabilities, compromised information, and data breaches in real-time.
