‘Passive scanning’ tool freely available to everyone
Between July and October 2015, Radically Open Security investigated 1,380 websites on the basis of public sources. The provisional results were presented at last week's Tek Tok Late Night, which SIDN and Tek Tok organised as part of the annual cyber security campaign Alert Online. The passive scanning tool developed by Radically Open Security for the scan is freely available for use via the company's website.
Tek Tok Late Night for SMEs
The scan results are further evidence that digital security on many business websites is not all that it might be – despite the increasing significance of having an on-line presence and providing services on line. At Tek Tok Late Night: Cyber Secure SMEs, the practicalities of cyber security for entrepreneurs were explored in interviews, debates, case studies and experiments. Business people were able to get personal advice from cyber security experts from Radically Open Security, Internet.nl, SIDN, MKB cyberadvies and HackerOne about how to protect their websites.
