Benefits of Proactive Incident Response
Incident response gives organisations more resources, specialised services and managerial skills to deal with security incidents – not to mention the in-depth perspective on how to remediate them. Clients gain access to malware experts who can add the decision-making perspective, proprietary tools and proven methodologies to respond more quickly.
Guaranteed availability of an experienced incident response expert in the event of a compromise or suspected breach.
Improve incident response capabilities and reduce exposure to attacks and breaches with certified Incident Response specialists
Skilled specialists from a variety of disciplines paired with a communication matrix allow for enhanced visibility and clearer decision-making.
Speed up investigations to contain them within days and reduce response times while still clearing tasks and objectives.
Demonstrate compliance and improve policy enforcement with skilled staff you can bring on at a moment’s notice.
Repurpose the hours not used to improve other areas of the cyber security strategy while also staying prepared in the event of a security incident.
Why Incident Response?
The technical expertise required to analyse, contain and eradicate a cyber security threat isn’t a resource that’s ordinarily freely available.
Within the industry, Incident Response is seen as a core component of any well-thought out cyber security strategy. It’s no surprise that proper incident response planning is seen as a core security control in all the leading cyber security frameworks and standards:
- NIST PR.IP-9
- CIS CSC 19
- COBIT 5 APO12.06, DSS04.03
- ISA 62443-2-1:2009 188.8.131.52.3,184.108.40.206.1
- ISO 27001:2013 A.16.1.1,A.17.1.1, A.17.1.2, A.17.1.3
- NIST SP 800-53 Rev. 4 CP-2, CP-7,CP-12, CP-13, IR-7, IR-8, IR-9, PE-17
Our Incident Response Process
Your organisation must be able to respond to a suspected security incident quickly.
We leverage an array of next-generation technologies and expert cyber security specialists to deliver an incident response service. The service assists your organisation in responding to a suspected security incident in a time-efficient and productive manner.
Our staged approach is to stop the active threat while applying proprietary tools and processes to quickly diagnose the environment and remedy the situation:
A Compromise Assessment offers a comprehensive analysis of whether your environment has been compromised from a cyber security perspective. Our Incident Response team provide insight, direction and remediation advice if it has, or a clean bill of health if it has not.
Enterprise-wide data is collected and analysed for evidence of suspicious activity. Indicators of compromise (IOCs) are prioritised for in-depth investigation based on the risks they pose to the client’s network environment and business operations. If evidence of a past breach is discovered, our experts can determine when, where, and how it occurred, and provide recommendations for preventing a recurrence. If a breach is currently in progress, the team can transition into incident response.
