Compromise Assessment

A compromise assessment in cybersecurity involves investigating and analyzing suspected or confirmed incidents of cybersecurity breaches. Certcube Labs conducts this assessment to determine whether attackers have compromised a computer system or network and the extent of the compromise. The process includes thorough examination of the system and network for signs of unauthorized access, analysis of logs, and detection of indicators of compromise, such as malware.

To fully understand the total valuation and associated risks of a company, it is crucial to assess its security profile, even from within its network. Certcube Labs addresses key questions during the compromise assessment, identifying any past undetected compromises, uncovering obscure malicious events, and discovering unmonitored assets within shadow IT networks.

With Certcube Labs cybersecurity compromise assessment, their world-class experts thoroughly investigate past and ongoing cyber incidents within an organization’s internal environment. They provide detailed mitigation steps to resolve any security events, thus facilitating better-informed business acquisitions and determining the organization’s current risk status or prior compromise.

Certcube Labs compromise assessment service is a comprehensive technical evaluation of an organization’s infrastructure, endpoints, and servers. The objective is to identify indicators of compromise or evidence of malicious activities, significantly enhancing the organization’s cybersecurity posture.

It is alarming that many businesses are unaware of being infiltrated, putting their sensitive information at risk. Sophisticated hacker groups may be secretly gathering data from their systems, and the organizations may be vulnerable to malware and ransomware attacks without even knowing it.

Attackers often use a multi-stage approach, making initial intrusions and then moving laterally through the system to steal confidential information over an extended period, putting it up for sale on the dark web.

For this reason, a compromise assessment from Certcube Labs becomes crucial to identify and mitigate unexpected and unknown risks within the infrastructure. This assessment provides a deeper understanding of current and past activity on the network, helping prevent future breaches.

Moreover, during business acquisitions, having an accurate and up-to-date cybersecurity status of the target company is critical. Certcube Labs’ compromise assessment can contribute to validating the merger or acquisition and establishing the value of the target company.

With the ongoing pandemic leading to increased remote work, it is essential to assess if networks and end-user devices are compromised.

To proactively safeguard against threats, organizations need to adopt a threat hunting approach. Certcube Labs can help identify threats in the IT estate and respond quickly and effectively to mitigate potential impacts. Taking a regular compromise assessment approach as part of the risk mitigation strategy ensures that the business environment remains protected from undetected attacks. Research from PwC’s Digital Trust Insights (COVID-19) Pulse Survey 2020 reveals a surge in successful intrusions, making it crucial for organizations to take a proactive stance in safeguarding their IT assets.

Our approach to Compromise Assessment

 

Pre-Assessment Planning
L
Pre-Assessment Planning

Pre-Assessment Planning

The first stage of the compromise assessment is pre-assessment planning. It involves preparing a well-organized plan that outlines the assessment’s scope, objectives, and approach. This phase also includes identifying assets to assess, anticipating challenges, coordinating with stakeholders, and obtaining necessary approvals. Certcube Labs ensures a thorough and efficient assessment process through meticulous pre-assessment planning.
Discovery
L
Discovery

Discovery

The second stage of the compromise assessment is the discovery phase, where the focus is on uncovering the extent of the compromise and understanding the attack details. Certcube Labs gathers comprehensive information about the attack, including the type of attack, the techniques employed, and the scope of the compromise. This phase may also involve identifying Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) to assess the impact and determine the necessary remediation actions. Through meticulous discovery, Certcube Labs gains crucial insights to effectively address and mitigate the detected compromises.
Scanning

Scanning

In the compromise assessment conducted by Certcube Labs, the scanning phase holds paramount importance. It serves as a critical step in ensuring comprehensive detection and prevention of any malicious activity or compromise within the organization’s IT environment. This meticulous scanning process guarantees that no potential security issues go unnoticed or unaddressed, making the assessment highly effective and reliable.
Collection Phase
L
Collection Phase

Collection Phase

The data collection phase in Certcube Labs’ cybersecurity assessment is a pivotal step that involves gathering crucial information from the target system. This comprehensive data includes system logs, server logs, application logs, user data, system state information, and any other relevant data that might provide insights for the assessment. The collected data is then meticulously analyzed by Certcube Labs’ experts to determine the extent of the compromise and identify any Indicators of Compromise (IOCs). This thorough analysis ensures that potential threats are detected, assessed, and effectively addressed during the cybersecurity assessment process.
Analysis Phase

Analysis Phase

Analysis Phase

The analysis phase in Certcube Labs’ cybersecurity assessment is a critical step where the data collected in the previous phase is thoroughly examined. This comprehensive analysis aims to determine the extent of any compromise and identify potential Indicators of Compromise (IOCs). Certcube Labs’ experts meticulously review the data to assess the type of malicious activity or compromise and its potential impact on the organization’s IT environment. Additionally, the analysis includes a search for potential indicators of compromise, such as malicious files, suspicious network connections, or unauthorized registry changes, which can aid in identifying the attacker or the nature of the malicious activity. This meticulous analysis allows Certcube Labs to gain deep insights into potential cybersecurity threats and respond effectively to safeguard the organization’s assets and data.
Reporting

Reporting

Reporting

The reporting phase in Certcube Labs’ compromise assessment is the final step. It involves compiling the assessment results into a concise report summarizing findings and recommendations to address the compromise. The report is shared with relevant stakeholders, providing a clear understanding of the compromise’s extent and recommended actions. Certcube Labs’ experts offer support for any active security events on the network. Additionally, high-level health assessments of endpoints are conducted using Redscan’s remote managed detection and response (MDR) capability, ensuring continuous monitoring and rapid incident response. This comprehensive reporting equips organizations with the insights needed to strengthen their cybersecurity defenses and prevent future incidents.

Performing Key Areas

During Compromise Assessment

Network Analysis

5
During compromise assessment, potential security breaches are identified by analyzing network traffic for abnormal patterns, such as traffic directed to unexpected locations or custom text in PING messages. Unauthorized file transfers over FTP, SSH, or RDP protocols on internet-accessible servers may indicate compromise, allowing prompt action to prevent further damage. Capturing and analyzing packets on the network helps identify unusual activity, indicating an attacker's presence and communication attempts with external servers or devices, aiding in mitigating the attack.

End-Point Analysis

5
End-Point Analysis refers to examining individual devices (such as computers, laptops, or smartphones) connected to a network. This includes checking for any unusual or malicious software installed on the device and looking for any other indicators of compromise.

Log Analysis

5

In compromise assessment, correlating multi-platform logs from various devices and systems connected to the network helps in better understanding the network's context and behavior. This approach enhances situational awareness and provides a comprehensive view of the network's current state, aiding in the identification of potential security threats.
