Regardless of your company’s size, from an attacker’s perspective, you have financial resources or can be a conduit to another organization’s funds. Today’s average attack is often part of an advanced persistent threat (APT) that has been in a compromised environment for 200+ days. This is an Information Security risk which needs to be addressed in a proactive manner. Information Security is a process that moves through phases building and strengthning itself along the way. Security is a journey not a destination. Although Information Security has many strategies and activities, we can group them all into three distinct phases – incident prevention, detection, and response.
Each phase requiring strategies and activities that will move the process to the next phase. The dynamic growth of new threats attaching vulnerabilities requires timely adjustments to the methodologies in incident prevention, detection, and response cycle. A change in one phase affects the entire process. A proactive strategy adjustment in the incident prevention phase will adjust the detection and response activities. Lessons learned during the response phase will be addressed in the planning of incident prevention measures and detection configurations. Each phase must be designed with adequate capabilities and management oversight to ensure that each phase contributes the requisite weighted amount in the reduction of risk from cyber threats to the organization. Such is the case with the DRS I𝜋&r managed service.
DRS coined the term I𝜋&r, which stands for (I)ncident (P)revention (I)ncident (I)dentification and (R)esponse (IPii&r) recast as I𝜋&r. Why introduce another acronym in an overcrowded field? Because our service is deeper than MDR and more continuous and affordable than IR. As such, a new way requires a new name: I𝜋&r.
Incident Prevention, Incident Identification,
and Response I𝜋&r
A proactive approach to prevention, isolation, and response to keep environments compromise-free and isolate threats, preventing legal, reputation, financial and data losses. Putting I𝜋&r in place with good endpoint protection achieves a highly protected environment.
Traditional Incident Response
- YOU recognize YOU have a problem
- YOU must trigger YOUR incident response plan, incurring downtime, loss of revenue and significant expenses
- Incident response team deploys remediation tools POST exploitation, REACTIVELY establishing baselines, discovering anomalies, and isolating effected hosts
- Process is extremely time consuming. In fact, it can take 3-4 months, enabling the threat(s) to rapidly increase via lateral movements.
The Six Sigma Approach
- Six Sigma centers around the DMAIC process (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control)
- PROACTIVELY deploy relevant tools to define operating baselines via habitual environment sampling of what is normal in the environment
- PROACTIVELY measure the results against pre-defined baselines to identify potential threats
- PROACTIVELY analyze apps, user accounts, memory, yara scan, and all activity via our proactively deployed solution(s). Once analyzed, compare against the baseline to identify anomalies
- PROACTIVELY improve your security posture by isolating impacted hosts
- PROACTIVELY inject control measures to prevent the attack from returning
Six Sigma relies on statistical process controls to ensure uniformity across the environment. In this instance, uniformity in the beginning is about ensuring a compromise-free environment.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Incident response is one of the most expensive cybersecurity offerings on the market, the primary reason being that insurance carriers for these firms carry the costs of remediation. To save money, many organizations assume that the protection they have against threats and their associated costs is sufficient. Unfortunately, that logic is faulty. Costs stemming from losses in reputation and revenues, fines and penalties from financial institutions, and legal costs to address the disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII) go way beyond what insurance carriers cover.
Your brand is your promise and we help keep that promise to your clients. Your reputation, their reputation and identities are safeguarded to the highest levels possible. Financial, reputational, and legal losses can be overwhelming and can materially cripple an organization. A great deal of focus on incident prevention with preparation can minimize risks and magnitude of exposure to such losses.
Any combination of cybersecurity technologies can’t prevent 100% of attacks, but we have a truly proactive approach to seek out adversaries and eliminate them: I𝜋&r. The current state of the cybersecurity industry with regard to MDR is reactive in nature, putting the “response” aspect at the forefront. When response is the focus, we essentially sit back and wait for a threat to occur, and then remediate only after the threat is identified. We simply do not operate this way at DRS.
