Managed Breach Detection

Cybersecurity management and monitoring challenges have evolved.
Your business is faced with a new set of challenges in detecting and stopping cybersecurity threats.  Hacking techniques have evolved well beyond straightforward exploit of known vulnerabilities:
  • Indirect, multi-layer attack methods involving social engineering and trust exploit of 3rd party service providers are used to circumvent most common cybersecurity controls.
  • Hackers move laterally through networks and systems, evading detection by using stolen credentials and authorized system communication channels.
  • Highly customized and proprietary methods are used to compromise systems and applications, avoiding detection by traditional intrusion detection technology.
  • Advance Persistent Threat (APT) activity involving compromise of systems and theft of information that goes undetected by security monitoring technologies for very long periods of time is becoming commonplace.
Technologies and processes need to evolve to meet these challenges.
Your existing ‘legacy’ cybersecurity technologies and processes are still necessary.  They just need to be bolstered with additional technologies and processes that can detect and contain today’s hackers while positioning you to adjust your cybersecurity controls appropriately as the hackers’ methods continue to evolve.
  • The footprint for security monitoring technologies needs to be expanded to cover areas of the network not considered in conventional security control strategies.
  • Advanced anomaly detection technologies need to be implemented that can not only detect unusual activity, but also intelligently interpret anomalous activity to diagnose potential threats.
  • Deception technologies, such as honeypots and sandboxes, need to be implemented to detect hacker activity, including that conducted by trusted insiders, which would otherwise remain undetected.
  • Technologies and processes need to be implemented to allow for the isolation of systems to prevent the spread of a compromise and allow for effective forensics and recovery.
  • Security monitoring technologies need to include advanced digital forensics capabilities that enable the efficient identification and definition of Indicators of Compromise (IoC), so that the extent of a compromise can be accurately determined.
  • Information correlation and analysis needs to take place, not just among the multiple security monitoring technologies, but with external intelligence feeds, in order to accurately diagnose the nature and certainty of a potential compromise.
Breach detection technology is not effective without the right team.  STIGroup can help.
As with conventional security monitoring technologies, advanced breach detection technologies need to be monitored and managed by a team of experts in order to be effective.  There is no such thing as ‘user friendly’ breach detection technology today.  STIGroup personnel have the expertise, relationships, and experience to keep your systems and information secure.   
  • The STIGroup Cybersecurity Consulting team works with your business to analyze your security controls strategy and select, place, and implement the right breach detection technologies for your environment.
  • The STIGroup Managed Security Operations team manages and monitors your breach detection technologies, as well as your other security infrastructure, to provide effective breach detection, diagnosis, isolation, and recovery.
