Continuously Improve Your Detection and Response

Measurably reduce risk and future-proof your defenses

Security teams are under pressure to reduce the time to detect and respond to cyber security threats while measuring the return on security investment. But staying ahead of the changing threat landscape requires an agile approach that is difficult to sustain, especially if resources are limited. So how can you improve your cyber defenses and your threat intelligence on a continuous basis while providing insights to all levels of the organization?


Map top business risks with the most likely attack scenarios

We’ve seen it many times – an incident is raised and the IT security team makes the decision to mitigate it by taking a critical server offline, which actually does much more damage to the business than the attack probably would have caused.

That’s why it’s important to determine the most likely attack scenarios that would bring your top business risks to fruition, define a target response window of acceptable loss, and address any gaps across your incident handling process to reduce the impact of an attack. This will not only help prioritize security investment but bridge the gap between business risk and cyber risk.

Continuous Improvement

Develop adaptable use cases covering the entire incident handling lifecycle

Uses cases have traditionally been associated with developing detection rules to fill monitoring gaps in technologies such as the SIEM. But to successfully limit the impact of a cyber attack, use cases need to consist of controls across the entire incident management life cycle while reinforcing learnings for future improvements. Developing, implementing and adapting these use cases, however, can take too much time, and requires constant vigilance regarding the changing threat landscape.

Key to achieving this is the timely deployment of automated use cases consisting of prevention improvements, detection rules and incident response playbooks. These should also be aligned to your threat profile, control gaps and risk appetite.

How we can help:

Use Case Factory – Continuously develop customized, attack scenario use cases, threat detection rules, and digital playbooks, in line with each customer’s threat profile and cyber trends. We baseline your existing prevention, detection and response controls against best practice frameworks such as NIST and MITRE ATT&CK matrix and identify gaps. In addition, we take input from our analysts, threat intelligence and threat hunting experts to continually develop, test, and deploy new use cases to enhance detection of critical threats.

Breach and Attack Simulation – Continuously test and validate your security defenses against real-life attack scenarios for faster identification and remediation of critical risks. CyberProof partners with breach & attack simulation platforms to continuously test your defenses with the widest range of attack vectors, providing an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) simulation of your security posture at all times. We analyze your ability to respond to real incidents with post-exploitation solutions and provide you with a clear picture of your organization’s vulnerabilities from every point of exposure.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) – We provide you with a dedicated team that proactively detects and responds to validated incidents, leading to a continuous reduction in response time and associated exposure risk. Utilizing our platform’s ChatOps collaboration and security automation, we expedite investigations and containment leveraging the collective expertise of the SOC analysts, threat intelligence experts, security specialists and customer team members. This improves efficiency and ensures full transparency over your company’s cyber security, leading to better decision-making. Our service includes:

  • Incident handling, threat investigation and response
  • Proactive intelligence, incident and event-driven threat hunting
  • Continuous review and optimization of customized threat detection rules and response playbooks
  • Proactive automated response and escalation
  • Targeted threat reconnaissance and CTI reports
