Getting the most from your EDR investment

GETTING RICH EDR INFORMATION ISN’T THE CHALLENGE, IT’S KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH IT

EDR webinar 2021

EDR is a powerful technology, but it can also be overwhelming to manage given the depth of raw data it collects such as execution processes, operating system activities, registry keys, memory activity, command lines and more. With powerful AI and ML capabilities, EDR solutions like to operate free of human interaction, but managing the results and knowing how to respond to actual alerts becomes the challenge.

PROACTIVELY HUNT FOR THREATS THAT HAVE SLIPPED THROUGH THE CRACKS

Three I’s of Threat Hunting

Threat Hunting should be used to identify threats that were not able to be identified via standard monitoring technologies. Often, threat hunting activities will only consist of searching for historic known IOCs using the EDR or SIEM, but this needs to extend into more advanced methods that cover the three Is of threat hunting sources:

  • Incident leads – following incident reports with similar organizations
  • Intelligence leads – investigations into clear, deep and dark web activity as well as evidence of techniques and tactics being used that align to the MITRE ATT&CK
  • Irregular activity – gathering mass amounts of customer data to understand baselines and uncover anomalous behavior.

CONTINUOUSLY OPTIMIZE EDR USE CASES AND POLICIES

Timely detection and response on the endpoint is important to reduce dwell time, but security teams often struggle due to:

  • Lack of time and skills to continuously configure endpoint security policies based on infrastructure and evolving attacker techniques
  • A growing number of devices and servers create more alerts leading to a lack of focus, with illusive threats missed
  • Inability to create customized rules and playbooks provided by EDR solutions
  • Unable to carry out advanced responses such as forensic investigations, remediations and threat intelligence enrichment

It’s therefore important to have an agile process for continuously developing and deploying custom EDR Use Cases covering everything from detection, threat hunting and forensic investigation to containment, remediation and policy enforcement.

Do you need both EDR and SIEM?

When looking to prioritize your security investments, the question of Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) vs. Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) may be raised.

Each system provides rule-based alerting, can query raw data that’s collected by agents, but also are seen as integral elements of your technology stack. It’s therefore vital that you understand the purpose of each solution.
