BE PREPARED TO DETECT THREATS AND MALICIOUS ACTIVITY
To provide you visibility of insider threats and malicious activity. Penetration Test Response can help enhance your detection and response capability, as well as assist you in identifying sensitive data that has been accessed or stolen.
Penetration testing allows you to simulate a real-world attack scenario, it is looking at an attack from the offensive perspective. Our pen-test response service can provide a wholistic view from the defensive perspective to provide you with real-world recommendations on how to deal with an attack.
The benefit of conducting forensics after a penetration test has taken place, is that many forensic artefacts will still be in place from the penetration test. This simulates a real-world attack scenario in which a forensic investigator would be requesting logs, and access to servers and/or endpoints to perform analysis. By performing Penetration Test Response, gaps for existing security controls can be discovered, thereby improving the level of readiness for when an attack does occur.
Assumptions are often made that forensic artefacts will be available when required, however we have discovered in every Incident Response service we’ve provided that there is always a significant gap in what evidence can be obtained due to these assumptions. Penetration Test Response will not only help train your team to know what to look for to detect future intrusions, it will also act as a security control gap assessment.
