Benefits of compromise assessments

Benefits of compromise assessments

Microminder evaluates networks and systems of all sizes to identify past and current breaches. We use a proven compromise assessment methodology and detection and hunting techniques to gather attacker-focused threat intelligence. This proactive approach helps to prevent future breaches and discover persistent threats. It also gives us the chance to respond promptly and mitigate the negative consequences of a breach.

We work to identify vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and security gaps within your networks. This reduces the negative impact of security breaches and helps your IT teams respond quickly and effectively.

By conducting compromise tests on your IT assets and application, you can understand their current state to help you develop a baseline to detect future breaches.

Cybersecurity compromise assessments assure investors and other stakeholders of the robustness of your organisation’s security hygiene. When you get positive feedback from incident response (IR) experts, you will be provided with a clean bill of health and show evidence of due diligence.

How - Steps of a Cybersecurity Compromise Assessment

Microminder’s cybersecurity assessment team will usually follow the following steps when carrying out compromise assessment:

Microminder’s compromise assessment services use the information gathered in the previous step to identify the assets and applications affected by malware or damage resulting from a breach.

We aim to find indicators of compromise using a thorough assessment of your networks, endpoints, servers and security log data. We access the security tools you already have installed, such as intrusion detection, prevention and other security information and event management (SIEM) tools. We also use additional detection tools to analyse your systems deeper.

Compromise assessment experts need to determine the hacking process used by intruders. We analyse the attack, the method of operation, and the vulnerabilities used for intrusion and identify the attack's entry points and root causes.

Our security teams identify the financial and security implications of the attack on your company and the effects on sensitive data. We need to ascertain the severity of the consequences of an attack and the best way to remediate the breach and reduce any negative impact.

We provide advice to your internal IT teams along with a compromise assessment report proving details of the nature of the breach and the systems that are affected. We also provide damage control methods and the steps we take to patch up the weak points and vulnerabilities that allowed the attack to occur. The final step Microminder takes is to offer recommendations on preventing any future malicious activities.

One of the worst long-term effects resulting from a security breach is the loss of stakeholder confidence. This affects your reputation and could ultimately lead to a lower valuation of your business.

Bad actors often attack an organisation’s data to perform industrial espionage, hijack company data, and access trade secrets. Unauthorised access results in sensitive data being released publicly and possibly lost as part of ransomware tactics. The types of data that are at risk include:

  • MCSL

    Personal identity information including contact information, social security numbers and birth dates.

  • MCSL

    Medical records with details regarding treatment plans, health conditions and private medical records.

LossOfSensitiveData

In addition to losing sensitive data, you may face fines based on legislation and industry regulations based on your regulatory environment. You will also have to pay containment and remediation costs to restore your assets to their original security posture. There is also the possibility of direct incident costs involved with investigations, containment and recovery of breached data.

Indicators of Compromise

Microminder’s cybersecurity professionals are trained to recognise and diagnose security threats using relevant enterprise compromise assessment tools. Security experts use different indicators of compromise (IOC) to examine the after-effects of a compromise.

There are numerous types of IOCs, and the most common ones include:
