CYREBRO offers a product that connects and analyzes all the pieces of information that enter your system and then gives professional recommendations on how to respond to the specific incident you are dealing with at the given moment.
With CYREBRO’s cloud-based SOC platform, you will save the costs of maintaining a physical SOC and still be able to perform a proper Incident Response in real-time as if you have an entire team of cybersecurity personnel in the organization at your service.
What Is Incident Response in Cybersecurity?
Incident response is the set of policies and procedures that are utilized to address and manage the aftermath of a cyber-attack or data breach, also known as a security, computer, or IT incident. With a SOC incident response plan, companies try to limit damage, reduce costs and recovery time so that the business can get back up and running.
Knowing Potential Attack Vectors
An attack vector is a path or method whereby threat actors infiltrate corporate systems and networks. Hackers use attack vectors to exploit system vulnerabilities and human errors. Your concrete SOC incident response plan will better defend against these attack vectors. The following sections gain an insight into potential attack vectors that incident response SOC will effectively counter:
Theft or Loss of Computing Devices
The threat vector incorporates a theft or loss of equipment used by the company, such as a smartphone or laptop. This may lead to malware and phishing attacks. A reliable cyber incident response plan for phishing attacks can prevent financial and reputational loss.
Cyber pests send a suspicious email to employees and management. The email contains a misleading message and/or malicious attachment that can inject malware into corporate systems and networks. Email attacks can also be a subset of phishing attacks.
The phishing attack incident response plan requires Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) to immediately separate valuable reports from the noise that turn user-reported emails into actionable intelligence. In fact, the noise is a false alarm in the SOC.
A web attack is executed from a web-based application or website. A well-defined web incident response plan is an invaluable asset to your company. CYREBRO’s cloud-based SOC platform integrates with any standard-based proxy appliance or web gateway to offer high-performance web security.
Distributed Denial of Service Attack
Since DDoS attacks prevent continuous delivery of critical services by opening the floodgates of unwanted traffic, a DDoS incident response strategy is vital to ensure business continuity and reliable, consistent services.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APT)
Although cyber incidents vary in their nature and technology uses, the incident response playbook can effectively deal with each type of cyber incident to avoid, or at worst minimize business
Incident Response Methodology
Many incident response vendors offer incident response and security operations. An effective incident response methodology, also known as incident response lifecycle, involves multiple stages and each step is carried out in a sequence.
Preparation comes into play to develop an incident response mechanism within the enterprise and to install a minimum security-baseline in the corporate network and IT infrastructure. The security product and services are reviewed prior to installation. Social engineering activities are performed on systems, networks, and applications running on them. This should be a part of the incident response strategy.
This phase helps incident response analysts to detect the security incident. An incident response software automates the detection of security events and computer incidents. This tool allows the detection of changes in network traffic patterns and directory structures. The incident response notifications assist in detecting the menace of data breaches in a timely manner.
Containment, Eradication, and Recovery
Incident containment involves the decision-making process whereby top leaders provide appropriate resources to contain the incident.
After that, the eradication phase comes into place to eliminate the cause of the incident. Eradication efforts may involve deleting the malicious code snippet or software, disabling firewall ports, closing certain accounts, and so forth.
Lastly, recovery is one of the most important goals of this methodology as it allows a business to be up and running again. Recovery actions incorporate system restore, backup, and system hardening to prevent future security incidents.
Containment, eradication, and recovery should be an essential ingredient of any incident response framework.
