Reducing the Risk of a Successful Cyber Attack
Adversaries use known vulnerabilities and phishing attacks to compromise the security of organizations. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) offers scanning and testing services to help organizations reduce their exposure to threats by taking a proactive approach to mitigating attack vectors. CISA's available services are listed below:
- Vulnerability Scanning: Evaluates external network presence by executing continuous scans of public, static IPv4s for accessible services and vulnerabilities. This service provides weekly vulnerability reports and ad-hoc alerts.
Additionally, CISA recommends you further protect your organization by identifying assets that are searchable via online tools and taking steps to reduce that exposure.
