The goal of cyber incident response and recovery is simple – to quickly identify and halt cyber-attacks and data breaches. A robust cyber incident response ensures damage is minimised and prevents similar attacks from happening in the future.
There are 6 sequential steps to incident recovery which help us to restore your systems swiftly in the event of a security issue.
This is the first and most critical phase of incident recovery. During this stage we review, and replace if necessary, existing security protocols. We perform a risk assessment to identify current weaknesses and prioritise responses for different incident types. All existing policies are scrutinised and overhauled. If they’re lacking, we’ll write new ones.
Using the foundations laid in the preparation phase, we’ll identify any attacks or security breaches. Once we’ve detected a breach or security threat, our team identifies the type of cyber incident, where it came from, and its intentions.
During this stage, it’s crucial that all evidence is properly stored and analysed. This information is then used to protect your business against future similar breaches. Finally, once confirmed, we’ll alert all relevant parties to what’s happened and what needs to happen next.
To minimise damage to your business, we carry out this stage as quickly as possible. There are short-term and long-term containment strategies which we implement.
Short-term containment involves quarantining immediate threats or taking an infected server offline. Long-term containment requires several steps such as reviewing and applying additional access controls, updating and patching systems, changing user administrative access credentials, and hardening all passwords.
After the threat has been made visible and contained, it must be eliminated. We securely remove all malware, patch and harden systems, and apply all necessary updates to your systems. We are very thorough in this step. Otherwise, you may lose valuable and sensitive information, making you more liable.
During this phase, we’ll bring your affected systems and devices back online. These are usually re-established without data loss, but not always. In such cases, we identify the most recent unaffected copy of data and use this as our restoration base. By executing a meticulous recovery stage, you’ll have things up and running quickly, and without fear of another cyber incident.
6. Lessons Learned
Once all other steps have been completed and the issue dealt with, we get together to discuss what we’ve learned. What worked well? What didn’t? Were there any flaws? How can we improve in the future?
All these questions help us to protect your systems against future attacks and further bolster your security.
