Answering the important question, "Have I been hacked?"

Threat Hunt: Compromise Assessment

Cybersafe’s Threat Hunters proactively hunt down undetected compromises, enabling an organization to rapidly assess endpoints for evidence of tampering, including malware, elusive root-kits, and back doors.

A fast, cost-effective approach to track down threats, malware, and adversaries.

Every day, hackers are devising new ways to penetrate your defenses, which is why the experts at Cybersafe are working to stay one step ahead of the curve to protect you, your integral business systems, and your data.

We examine 100% of your IT endpoints (desktops, laptops, servers) by:

  • Interrogating endpoints for signs of compromise and other suspicious code
  • Checking for the presence of persistence mechanisms used to maintain system access across reboots
  • Examining volatile memory for signs of manipulation and/or hidden processes
  • Identifying disabled security controls such as Anti-Virus and Windows Defender
  • Verifying that critical operating system files are unaltered
  • Identifying unauthorized or unwanted remote access tools
  • Producing a comprehensive report that enables your team to take decisive action

Methodology

A Superior Approach

Cybersafe streamlines the threat hunt through an automated deployment of sensors that rapidly and independently scan your operating system. The sensors automatically dissolve at the end of the scan, eliminating the need for post-hunt clean-up or left-behind code.

Security Testing

Security Program Audit

The compromise assessment serves to validate the effectiveness of current security controls and catch threats that may have breached existing defenses. It also provides insight into which defenses are functioning effectively and which are obsolete.

Lock

Risk Management & Regulatory Compliance

Current regulatory requirements and data breach disclosure laws are creating a hostile environment for enterprises. Compounding the risk are civil actions that claim enterprises should be liable for not detecting malware that persists for long periods of time. Compromise assessments indicate organizational due diligence and provide proof that an enterprise is malware-free at a given point in time.

Share

Third-Party & Vendor Risk Management

Organizations take on significant risk when they share sensitive data or intellectual property with new vendors and partners. In many cases, a current compromise assessment report should be requested to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the vendor’s information networks.

Merge

Mergers & Acquisitions

Prior to an M&A transaction, compromise assessment checks pre-existing conditions to ensure the buyer is not accepting the risk and associated costs of an existing compromise. The assessment should be conducted during due diligence.

Shield

Cyber Insurance

Cyber and data breach insurance involves an unknown risk of existing compromise. Therefore, underwriters would be prudent to require a compromise assessment prior to issuing a policy. The resulting report can be used in actuarial decision-making alongside vulnerability or compliance reports. Additionally, the assessment may be used annually as a third-party audit to ensure the insured is making necessary efforts to detect and report security breaches.
