GCA is intensifying its work in the world of finance and insurance.

Apart from its pool of partners in both sectors (Finance & Insurance), and the latest addition of Marsh & McLennan Companies as our first insurance partner in Latin America, GCA is collaborating actively with the Capacity-Building Tool Box of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

This project, a collection of guides launched in seven languages last July, is aimed at empowering small and under-resourced financial institutions around the globe with new organizational approaches towards cybersecurity. The GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Small Business plays a central supportive role in it, as a source for free resources for many of the organizational recommendations and best practices included in the guides.

In that sense, GCA is also participating in a special report on the new challenges of cybersecurity for financial institutions and insurance companies to be covered by The European next October. All the readers of GCA’s newsletter are invited to subscribe to this international magazine with the special link below:

Also, the magazine is offering a special 20% discount to any partners from GCA that would like to advertise on its pages. In order to benefit from this discount, they just have to contact and mention their relationship with GCA.


Newly Released GCA Platform:  AIDE (Automated IoT Defence Ecosystem)

Adnan Baykal, GCA’s Global Technical Adviser, met with Infosecurity at Blackhat last week to discuss GCA’s new AIDE platform. AIDE will “enable small businesses, manufacturers, service providers and individuals to identify vulnerabilities, mitigate risks and secure IoT devices to protect global users of IoT products.”  GCA’s goal for AIDE is to collect data from IoT attacks and then turn that data into actionable intelligence.

The Global Cyber Alliance released AIDE which is a threat analysis tool that studies cyber threats to internet-connected devices (IoT).  Typically, researchers use “honeypots” to learn how hackers attempt to break into an IoT system. GCA’s AIDE project allows IoT device honeypots to “operate at scale without investing in a ton of devices.”
