CSC, a world leader in business, legal, tax, and domain security, today announced through their Digital Brand Services (DBS) division a strategic alliance with SecurityScorecard, the global leader in security ratings, to provide domain security insights for evaluating enterprise cyber risk to SecurityScorecard platform users. The most damaging attacks today—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 lookalike domain, email header spoofing, or an email account take over. Many of the largest companies in the world still lack basic domain security, making them prime targets for bad actors.
“The root cause of the most serious cyber threats companies face today is often an enabling attack on the domains or DNS that give bad actors a launch pad to conduct a larger attack,” says Mark Calandra, president of CSC’s Digital Brand Services division. “As the most security conscious, enterprise-class domain registrar, CSC is excited to partner with SecurityScorecard—allowing SecurityScorecard to bethe first to integrate domain security insights into its platform—giving companies a more meaningful way to mitigate against supplier cyber threats. This also helps companies better understand the level of risk they’re exposed to when working with a consumer-grade domain registrar.”
“We are excited to partner with an enterprise-class domain registrar like CSC to educate companies that are using consumer-grade registrars of a better, more effective security approach,” said Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO at SecurityScorecard. “By taking very sensible, proactive measures to protect against domain and DNS attacks, we are confident organizations and insurers can better pinpoint potential cyber risks and breaches before they occur.”
In the initial integration via the SecurityScorecard platform, CSC is providing users with visibility into the class of domain registrar they’re using, enabling them to better manage the risk related to their domain name portfolio. This information will help educate companies about the level of advanced security needed to protect against domain and DNS security threats today. Customers from both organizations can learn more and take advantage of the integration at securityscorecard.pathfactory.com/l/csc.
