AND INCIDENT RESPONSE

Providing your organisation the ability to response effectively and appropriately against cyber-attacks 24/7.

THE CHALLENGES WITHOUT INCIDENT RESPONSE

Today’s cyber criminals are professionals. These are real illicit businesses with internal organisational structures, strategies and KPIs, and complex supply-chains. Their key objectives are to target legitimate businesses to generate revenue and profits, and it’s highly profitable. It’s no surprise then that data breaches, cyber attacks and ransomware has been considered one of the top risks posed to businesses today, and incident response is at the core.

There is no silver bullet when it comes to cyber security. Attacks can still occur despite your best efforts to secure your IT systems. Being fully prepared can be your best defence. Now more than ever, incident response has become just as important as protection and detection. An effective response can make all the difference to the outcome of a serious cybersecurity incident. Having a plan in place can limit damage, improve your recovery time and help safeguard your organisation.

What is incident response?

Incident response encapsulates both proactive and reactive measures to respond to cyber security incidents. At the core of security, all activities point to incident response. The quicker you can respond, and the more prepared you are, the better off you’ll fare. When it comes to reactive, it’s about having the right partners in place ready to go when you need them.

After a ransomware attack, a data breach, or a myriad of other attack vectors threat actors may target your organisation with, reactive cyber incident response includes investigation, threat containment and eradication. Post-incident review and root cause analysis will also be conducted to help your organisation prevent reoccurrence and recover from the damage.

This can be extremely costly - Your house is on fire and the fire is spreading quickly. You now need to respond reactively.

Proactive incident response is the identification of weaknesses in your organisation that may be leveraged by threat actors, and the actions that can be taken to prevent them in the first place. This may involve penetration testing, conducting cyber risk assessments, training staff, documentation development, playbooks, employing security resources or partnering with us.

Ultimately, proactive incident response is the identification of risk and pre-emptive measures to reduce the possibility of threats compromising your business.

7 phases of the incident response process

Loop follows the NIST 800-61 framework when dealing with major cyber security threats in our customers' environments. The framework consists of the following steps;

Preparation – Loop’s proactive approach to incident response delivers your organisation an incident response plan, ensuring those responsible for participating understand their roles and responsibilities, and that your organisation has a plan in place when the worst happens. Preparation is a proactive measure that has the biggest influence on reducing the impact of cyber incidents, whilst preventing an incident in the first place.

Detection – Loop assists in ensuring that your organisation will not only have the appropriate security tools in place, such as SIEM and EDR, but that the information being collected is relevant to security, to protect the data that matters to you and keep your security solution cost-effective. In addition, providing skilled analysts and engineers, armed with current processes to detect threats using techniques such as AI and threat hunting.

Analysis – Loop analyses security alarms, events, and incidents to deliver end-to-end incident response for your organisation. Our team of specialists analyses an incident to determine the source, how best to remediate it, and to confirm remediation steps are complete using a combination of automated and manual techniques.

Containment and Eradication – Containment and Eradication without the appropriate skills can result in further organisational damage - critical data may be deleted, or assumptions made on the ‘eradication’ of a threat actor, when they may still be active elsewhere, or commonly, have placed back doors in your environment to regain access. Loop has the skills to contain and eradicate major cyber security incidents to their entirety. Loop can also conduct forensic analysis when required.

Recovery – Loop supports organisations in recovery through post incident review, recommendations for improvement to prevent the recurrence of incidents, and supporting documentation reviews.

Post Activity – Loop will carry out any further forensic activities as requested by the Customer, including providing reporting aligned with your governing body, or federal government guidelines. Loop has the capacity to speak in court if your incident becomes a legal matter.
