Cyber Incident Response | Case Study
A client contacted our cyber incident response team believing they had suffered from a ransomware attack on a newly installed server just before they were about to break up for the festive period. We immediately arranged with our cyber incident response team to have a conference call with the client and his IT team. The purpose of the call was to understand what they believed had happened and explain what we can do to help get them back to business as usual.
The new server did not hold any Personal Identifiable Information (PII) but it was business-critical as it held all the templates used for client jobs. As a result of the ransomware, they were unable to operate their systems, as all the main files were encrypted and the business ground to a halt. We immediately started with a telephone consultancy to start securing the systems remotely and booked to go on-site at the earliest point possible. As a result of our work, they were back up and running in less than five working days.
Of the 39% of UK businesses who identified an attack, the most common threat vector was phishing attempts (83%).
21% of businesses identified sophisticated attacks such as denial of service, malware, or ransomware attack.
31% of businesses and 26% of charities estimate they were attacked at least once a week.
How Do I Prevent A Cyber Attack?
When it comes to cyber attacks, doing nothing is simply no longer an option. Having robust cyber incident response is essential to protecting your business and networks, so if you are wondering how to prevent a cyber attack on your business, then there are some steps you can take.
Some simple tips include ensuring staff awareness when it comes to cyber security, as well as not clicking on or downloading suspicious links, keeping your software updated and backed up and implementing endpoint protection. Our cyber incident response services can provide you with peace of mind, as we can ensure that your business is protected against cyber attacks.
What Do I Do After A Cyber Attack?
If you believe that your business has been compromised and is the victim of a cyber security incident, then you might be wondering what to do after an information security incident. As soon as you suspect signs of a cyber attack, we recommend disconnecting from the internet, especially on the affected devices, and disable any remote settings. Then, get in touch with us and our team can initiate our cyber incident response services, where we preserve evidence, look into any weaknesses where the breach may have occurred, what actions were taken by the hackers and put together a management report for you to review.
With our CYFOR Secure cyber incident response services, we’re on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so no matter when you spot the signs of a cyber attack, our team are on hand to keep your business protected.
What Is A Data Breach?
If you’re wondering what a cyber security incident data breach is, then here at CYFOR Secure, we see it as a serious security violation. A data breach means that there has been a breach within your security defences which has then led to the accidental or unlawful, loss, alteration, destruction or even disclosure of sensitive information and data. For more information on how to protect your business from a data breach, check out our blog post here.
How Do I Know What To Do After A Data Breach?
We understand that as a business, you are responsible for keeping people’s most trusted and sensitive information safe, which is why it can be devastating to encounter a data breach. If you’ve encountered a breach which involves client or customer information and aren’t sure what to do after a data breach, then the first step is to confirm what breach occurred and what information was exposed during the breach. Then, our cyber incident response team can work to quickly secure your systems and fix any vulnerabilities which may have led to the data breach.
Following a cyber security incident, if there was a breach of personal data, we recommend that you follow guidelines in reporting this to the ICO within 72 hours. It may be that you don’t need to report all details, but you might be asked for a log of what happened and what you will do to prevent a cyber security incident from happening again in the future. You will likely also be asked to inform people whose personal data was compromised in the cyber security incident.
We’re here to help you in the event of a data breach with our cyber incident response services. We’re on hand to quickly neutralise threats and resolve breaches in a short matter of time. For more information on our cyber incident response services, get in touch with our team today.
Is My Business At Risk Of A Cyber Attack?
Businesses of all sizes are at risk of a cyber attack, but many small businesses find themselves at increased risk of a cyber attack. This is simply because they are less likely to have adequate cyber security protection in place, but this can be the case with all businesses – no matter their size.
You might already have some cyber security protections in place, but cyber security needs to be regularly reviewed and assessed to identify any potential threats or vulnerabilities within your business networks. Here at CYFOR Secure, we provide cyber security audits to provide you with a comprehensive review and analysis of your business’s IT infrastructure and recommended services we can provide to keep your business protected.
What Are The Most Common Type Of Cyber Security Attacks For Businesses?
Phishing is perhaps the most common type of cyber security attack for businesses, mostly because it is so easy for cyber criminals to carry out and is largely effective in securing sensitive information. Malware attacks are also very common cyber security attacks within businesses and are designed to gain access to networks and devices. Around 90% of cyber security breaches and attacks are the result of human error and, in a large number of cases, can be avoided.
Whilst our cyber incident response services provide support in the instances following a cyber attack, we also have cyber security awareness training courses. These courses are tailored by us in order to suit your business and help educate your employees in cyber security, ensuring proper procedures are followed moving forward.
