Through mitigation actions ranging from in person physical network modifications to remote threat hunting and incident response, our team of cyber security experts regularly responds to Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks, Credential Stuffing attacks, Credential Spraying attacks, Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, Malware infections, Ransomware attacks, and other Computer Security Incidents.
During a cybersecurity attack, a business is faced with balancing the need to stop the attack and secure the network from future attacks with the ability to continue running. This can be particularly difficult when the cyberattack is complex or very successful.
Following a successful defense of the cyberattack the company needs to look at how the attack occurred, why cybersecurity attack prevention was not successful, and what policies, processes, people, or technology needs to change to return the business to a state of being able to function while preventing a similar cybersecurity attack from being successful in the future. Planning for the possibility that a future cybersecurity attack is also successful, what changes should be made to reduce the impact to the business.
If the business did not have the the ability to detect a device in the organization’s network from downloading malware or exploit code running on a website, that speaks to a possible gap in cybersecurity technology. If the business had the cybersecurity technology but it was not configured properly or an employee bypassed the available protections because it was in their way, that may speak to an opportunity to make changes to policies, processes, people, and technology. Micro Systems Management’s team of cybersecurity experts will work with your company’s Executives, HR, Legal, and IT teams to recommend changes as part of a wholistic effort to prevent a future cyberattack similar in nature to the one experienced from being successful and other recommended changes based on our analysis of the cybersecurity attack.
While a company can benefit from Dark Web Monitoring before a cybersecurity attack occurs, in the aftermath of a successful cybersecurity attack using a service to monitor the dark web for stolen business login information is critical. We strongly encourage the use of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or similar two step verification for all accounts as practical and using Dark Web Monitoring to detect possible breaches of company login information.
