The ISC Security Dashboard can be found at https://isc.sans.edu/dashboard.html or https://www.dshield.org/dashboard.html and is an ideal tool for viewing summary DShield report data, ISC site content and related security information all in one place. Some places to use the page could be simply an open browser tab, an embedded web page, a control center monitor and more! Let us know where you use the dashboard in the comments section below.
The first section on the page contains the current UTC date/time and Refresh options. You can click to Refresh immediately or select to let the page auto-refresh every 5, 10, 20, 30 or 60 minutes. Additionally, when you select an interval, the reload will display a link you can bookmark to easily return to that timed refresh rate.
