The Global Cyber Alliance is focussed on one thing: to unite the global community to eradicate systemic cyber risk. An international, cross-sector effort, they are focussed on helping the global community implement concrete solutions that mitigate and then eradicate systemic cyber risks, as well as measure and transparently report on the effect of the Alliance’s efforts. Founded by a partnership of law enforcement and research organisations, the Global Cyber Alliance have launched a number of initiatives and products that enable organisations around the world to operate safely and securely. From their DMARC Email Authentication application through to their sophisticated Quad9 security solution that uses DNS to protect your system against the most common types of threats, both of which are free to access and use, you as a business, are so much more protected against potential, and often debilitating, cyber risk.
CFPro Ventures is proud to partner with the GCA in the fight against cybercrime.
DMARC: Email Authentication
DMARC is the simple, trusted solution that brings together email authentication protocols, and adds reporting and compliance. DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance. It’s like an identity check for your organisation’s domain name. A DMARC policy allows a sender to indicate that their messages are protected, and tells a receiver what to do if one of the authentication methods passes or fails – either send the message or reject the message to junk. Further, DMARC helps prevent the creation of fraudulent email accounts on your organisation’s website domain. It’s also free to use, making it completely accessible to all. In just a few easy steps, DMARC can be set up to protect your organisation from email fraud. To know more about DMARC, and to download it today, click here.
Quad9 is a free security solution that uses DNS to protect your system against the most common cyber threats. It improves your system’s performance, plus, it preserves and protects your privacy. It’s like an immunisation for your computer. Quad9 routes your DNS queries through a secure network of servers around the globe. The system uses threat intelligence from more than a dozen of the industry’s leading cyber security companies, to give a real-time perspective on what websites are safe, and what sites are known to include malware or other threats. Setting up Quad9 requires just a simple configuration change. Most organisations or home users can update in minutes. To learn more about Quad9, click here.
