The ability, success and precision of an Incident Response (IR) investigation depends on having complete visibility for all systems and network paths throughout your environment. This service identifies problems that hinder investigations and enables organizations to increase their ability to detect and respond to attacks, as well as minimize the impact and cost caused by the incident. We analyze your current detection and response capability, including review of current IR Plans and Playbooks and network and logging configuration. These elements are crucial in not only ensuring an organization has the data available for the eventual incident but also to effectively respond.
We give recommendations to improve the overall capability and gain greater visibility of the environment. Our recommendations from this heighten the overall security posture of the enterprise, improve detection and minimize time to resolution.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) recently went into effect, yet many multinational companies are still behind the compliance curve.
This sweeping regulation requires organizations to meet stringent data protection requirements affecting the personal data of EU citizens and for the first time, also impacts companies that are based outside of Europe. With severe penalties in play – fines of up to €20m or 4% of global annual revenues – corporations must implement actionable and efficient strategies to achieve compliance.
Data classification – Know where personal data is stored on your system, especially in unstructured formats in documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. This is critical for both protecting the data and also following through on requests to correct and erase personal data.
*Metadat*a – With its requirements for limiting data retention, you’ll need basic information on when the data was collected, why it was collected, and its purpose. Personal data residing in IT systems should be periodically reviewed to see whether it needs to be saved for the future
Governance – With data security by design and default the law, companies should focus on data governance basics. For unstructured data, this should include understanding who is accessing personal data in the corporate file system, who should be authorized to access, and limiting file permission based on employees’ actual roles – i.e., role-based access controls.
Monitoring –The breach notification requirement places a new burden on data controllers. Under the GDPR, the IT security mantra should “always be monitoring”. You’ll need to spot unusual access patterns against files containing personal, and promptly report an exposure to the local data authority. Failure to do so can lead to enormous fines, particularly for multinationals with large global revenues.
