Fast Incident Response

The first 48 hours are critical when a company experiences a data breach. One critical mistake is not following your incident-response plan or worse yet not having a plan in place.

As a GIAC certified incident response team, we are brought in during those critical 48 hours when a company needs a fast but thorough incident response investigation. There are critical steps every company must take within the first 48 hours after a breach. Secure Cyber Defense can help you plan, and execute the steps necessary to protect valuable evidence and determine the scope of the breach.

What is Active Threat Intelligence?

Active threat intelligence is also known as cyber threat intel. This intelligence is the knowledge and information used by cybersecurity companies to prevent and deter cybercriminals from attacking an organization. Threat Intelligence answers the questions of who is the attacker, their motives, their capabilities, tactics used, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that fingerprint how these criminals operate. This information supports an organization's ability to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover from threats.

 “If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” – Sun Tzu, Chinese Military Strategist

Active threat intelligence is at the forefront of cybersecurity. Capturing and analyzing the latest cyber threats allows us to implement proactive defenses against potential threats and minimize risk. This layered approach to cybersecurity is what elevates Secure Cyber Defense's capabilities.

Why is Active Threat Intelligence Important?

Cyber threats are on the rise and becoming more sophisticated.  New attack strategies targeting unpatched systems and exploiting undiscovered flaws are the core of what cybercriminals use to complete their mission. It is critical to be proactive to protect your sensitive data. Having access to the latest threat intelligence, organizations are able to protect their sensitive information.

Secure Cyber Defense brings together multiple vetted sources of threat intelligence including our partner Fortinet's intelligence. These threat intelligence sources inform and strengthen our proprietary threat intelligence database. We also run proactive threat analysis and threat hunting exercises to further strengthen our threat blocking capabilities. This layered approach ensures that threats are denied and organizational risks are lowered.

What is Threat Hunting?

Threat hunting is the process where analysts seek out and analyze threat alerts within network traffic or from intelligence sources.  Analysts proactively “hunt” for threats beyond the normal system threat alerts. Analysts actively search deep within the the internet to understand the latest threats so they can study cyber criminal tactics and patterns as well as their potential targets.

The knowledge obtained from these "cyber hunts" informs our analyst's ability to implement the most appropriate actions. Our goal is to create measures to defend against newly discovered tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). Threat hunting supports threat intelligence data, fuels future threat hunting, and supports incident response teams with the necessary Indicators of Compromise (IoC) information to successfully identify malicious threats.
