It’s been just over a year since GCA released its Cybersecurity Toolkit for Small Business, and a French version was recently launched as well. At this year’s RSA Conference, GCA President and CEO Phil Reitinger sat down with Tom Field, the Senior Vice President of Information Security Media Group, to discuss the toolkit’s progress. They also discuss the state of election security, concerns about connected devices, and more. You can watch the interview here.
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.”
