One of the most important items to keep in mind after a security breach has been detected is the importance of having an organized plan for remediation. The goal of an incident response is always to handle the situation in a way that minimizes damage and reduces recovery time and costs. Our team at AZ Cybersecurity follows a 5 step process. First, we train both end users and IT staff on how to respond. Second, we initiate our response team while simultaneously tracking network activity to further understand the risk (e.g., worm, virus, etc.). Third, we quickly act to contain the damage, understand how far the breach has spread, and disconnect systems when appropriate. Fourth, a portion of the team breaks off to conduct a root cause analysis and trace the malicious code. Finally, our team will then eradicate the virus, recommend and execute a corrective and preventive action plan, and then prepare a set of lessons learned to be shared across the organization.
Digital Forensic Services
With an increase in cyber and insider threats, it is important to understand one’s ability to detect, analyze and eradicate the threat from your network. AZ Cyber Security Solutions certified digital forensics and Incident response experts utilize advanced data recovery and investigation tools to uncover and interpret electronic data, investigate intrusions, policy violations, harassment and intellectual property theft. The goal of our approach is to recover needed content in its original form. We understand that, given the evidentiary nature of digital forensic science, rigorous standards (e.g., National Institute of Standards and Technology) must be adhered to for the findings to stand up to cross examination in court. AZ Cyber Security Solutions will use state of the art tools to search and recover all web history form hard disk image, physical memory image, unallocated space, slack space, and swap files. We will recover history from any browser vendor and version. Our team follows strict forensic methodology to ensure that data integrity, confidentiality, and availability is not compromised. We acquire forensic image of the original evidence and secure the original and use copy to complete the investigation. AZ Cyber Security Solutions will backup all client data and encrypt them when in storage and in transit. Our digital forensics services include:
Intrusion Detection & Prevention
Our team of experienced cyber security professionals can design, deploy and tune intrusion detection and prevention systems to bolster the detection and prevention of cyber-attacks. Our team will gather and analyze information within a computer or a network to identify potential security breaches both internal and external to the organization. Our team will provide an inspection of the system’s configuration files to detect inadvisable settings, inspection of the password files, and inspection of other system areas to detect policy violations. We will also ensure that procedures are set in place to reenact known methods of attack and to record system responses.
