Six Steps for Managing Cyber Breaches

Ale Espinosa

You’ve been breached. Now what?

Being quick to respond to a security breach is critical in minimizing the impact that malware could have on your network, as well as limiting an intruder’s access to your data. Having helped numerous clients with their cybersecurity needs, we have identified how to better prepare for and respond to cyber-attacks, which we included in our recently published white paper Incident Response: Six Steps for Managing Cyber Breaches.

With 70% of cyber-attack victims being notified by third parties about their security breaches (which you can read more in my recent blog post Hello? You’ve Been Breached.), many security professionals from even the largest organizations and agencies in the world have found themselves surprised by the fact that their enterprise was center stage to a cyber-attack –sometimes for several months—all without their knowing. That is why it is extremely important to be proactive about implementing security best practices and an incident response plan, as well as having in place tools for the detection, analysis, and remediation or cyber-attacks, such as EnCase Analytics and EnCase Cybersecurity.

Six Steps for Managing Cyber Breaches recommends security professionals to operate under the assumption of compromise – meaning that an attack is imminent, as perimeter security solutions continue to become insufficient in detecting advanced threats. From malware that morphs as it moves from one computer to another, to threats that are new and therefore unrecognizable, signature-based detection tools will not be able to identify these threats as dangerous intruders, thus allowing them to penetrate your network, which puts your data at risk of being accessed or stolen.
