Our Compromise Assessment process is used to identify, assess, and mitigate security incidents. This process involves an intensive review of systems and networks to determine the cause and scope of the incident, as well as any necessary measures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. Compromise Assessment helps organizations protect their data, as well as meet compliance requirements.
Compromise Assessments involve an in-depth analysis of an incident to determine the scope and cause of the security breach, as well as a review of existing security controls and processes. This process is designed to identify weaknesses to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. Additionally, Compromise Assessment helps organizations meet compliance requirements such as GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS, and ISO/IEC 27001.
Our compromise assessment Process includes:
Finding Indicators of Compromise: We start the assessment process by monitoring and checking your network, endpoints, and security log data for IoCs. To do this, we use both the security tools you already have in place including Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention, and SIEM tools, and deploy additional monitoring and detection solutions for deeper analysis.
Identifying assets affected by the attack: The next step is identifying all the systems and applications affected by the breach or malware using the information collected in the previous step.
Analyzing the nature of the attack: Step 3 is when we analyze the nature of the attack and try to determine the attacker’s process and method of operation. Our security experts carry out an in-depth analysis of the attack and try to find the weak spots in your security infrastructure that may have provided an entry point to the attacker(s).
Assessing the attack’s impact: We then conduct an impact assessment exercise which involves ascertaining if and how much of your company’s sensitive data was exposed or affected due to the attack and how severe its legal and financial repercussions can be. This is followed by working out the best course of action to deal with the impact of the breach.
Preparing the final report: Finally, our security team prepares a comprehensive report detailing the: Nature of the compromise, The systems, and data affected by the breach, Its possible repercussions, The immediate action necessary for damage control, The remediation steps to plug the security holes that allowed the attack, Recommendations for preventing malicious activity in the future.
