SIWECOS - Secure Websites and Content Management Systems
SIWECOS stands for "Secure Websites and Content Management Systems" and helps small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) detect and fix security vulnerabilities on their websites.
One focus of the project is on concrete recommendations for action in the event of damage, while a second strong focus is on raising awareness among SMEs in the field of cyber security. A vulnerability scanner regularly checks the server systems of a small or medium-sized company for known vulnerabilities, or checks the web applications installed on them for security vulnerabilities. All tools were developed in accordance with the principle of secure by design.
SIWECOS will improve the security of websites in the long-term and also raise SMEs' awareness of the relevance of IT security. SIWECOS will enable SMEs to communicate at eye level with IT service providers.

Once the scan has been performed completely, a detailed result page with all tested rules and many security tips is loaded.
