Identify Active Threats with Threat Hunting
Cyber criminals leverage many different attack vectors to accomplish their goals, not all of which can easily be detected by antivirus and firewalls. It’s not uncommon for an attacker to establish persistence inside an organization and continue to exfiltrate sensitive data, and in some cases sell the access to other criminals on the dark web.
Detecting a threat either active or inactive takes a special approach to ensure all aspects of networked nodes have been inspected. Threat hunting is an in-depth inspection of each node, using both manual techniques and automated tools, to search for indicators of compromise and threat actors, both dormant and active.
The purpose of threat hunting is to identify any potential compromises of data confidentiality, integrity, and availability, to evaluate security architecture, instrumentation and controls, and to provide specific actionable guidance on appropriate response and remediation steps, should a previous compromise be identified.
A detailed report will be delivered to you identifying attackers in the scoped internal and external attack surfaces. During threat hunting operations, we conduct analysis of scoped systems with credentialed access to identify Indicators of Compromise (IoC). These operations include detection of malicious network traffic, registry/file system changes, and the identification of malicious processes and files present on the client’s systems.
In addition to any active threats being identified, we provide a remediation roadmap with guidance on the appropriate remediation steps.
