Strengthening Supply Chain Security with our Automatic Security Tags

3 mins read

In today's digital landscape, where data breaches and cyber threats loom large, safeguarding your supply chain has never been more critical. The supply chain is the lifeblood of any business, but it's also a prime target for cybercriminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities. From phishing attacks to supply chain compromises, the risks are manifold. By monitoring the security posture of your supply chain, you can proactively identify and mitigate these risks before they escalate into full-blown security breaches.  

One of the ways to identify potential problems with your supply chain in advance is the timely detection of suspicious domain activity indicating malicious actors' attempts to infiltrate your network and steal sensitive information.  

Understanding Security Tags: A Key Indicator of Potential Threats

Security tags play a pivotal role in assessing the trustworthiness of vendor domains. These tags provide valuable insights into the domain's legitimacy and security status, helping organizations evaluate the risk associated with engaging with specific vendors. One such crucial security check is DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), which verifies the authenticity of emails sent from a domain. By ensuring that emails are not tampered with during transit, DKIM helps prevent email spoofing and phishing attacks.  

Spoofable domains also pose a significant threat to organizations, as they can be easily impersonated by malicious actors to deceive unsuspecting users. A few additional indicators could be the creation time of a Domain or the updates of that Domain, indicating a new owner or other potential changes.  

By flagging these vulnerable domains, businesses can take proactive measures to protect their networks and sensitive data.
