Security threat

If you’re an attacker looking for a route into an organisation, there are two ways you can do it. You can seek out vulnerabilities and try to hack the company. Or, you can go after the end user. People are often the weakest link, and that’s why phishing is such a common form of attack. In fact, phishing prevention is one of the top three issues we deal with for our customers as it’s a common vector for infection, ransomware or data exfiltration.

Phishing uses social engineering to fool targets – from disguising links to look like the user’s filesharing software, targeting company executives, or using personal information to appear more convincing. Thanks to the commoditisation of malware, it has also become easy for hackers to deploy phishing attacks at scale. A low success rate can still achieve big rewards, such are the volumes at play.

Phishing threats have become more prevalent as employees increasingly work remotely. They may be working from their own devices, simultaneously accessing personal and corporate communications. Cloud workspaces are often a target – a malicious email to a personal mailbox could provide a route in. What’s more, without the facility to ‘sense-check’ suspicious emails with colleagues, remote workers have a more isolated mindset, leaving them less likely to spot every threat.

How we help

For the ultimate in phishing prevention, our security technologies plug into all of the most commonly used email security measures, including Mimecast and M365 anti-phishing.

Using log feed monitoring we can advise on user best practice for your business and identify risky user behaviour – such as repeatedly clicking malicious links.

Real-time monitoring allows us to quickly detect any threats that have infiltrated your network via a phishing attack – allowing us to respond rapidly and prevent proliferation.

We can also carry out Penetration Testing – helping to determine vulnerabilities by attempting to breach your network using the same techniques as cyber criminals.

Our security experts stay in-the-know when it comes to the latest phishing scams, allowing us to adjust our tools to ensure anything suspicious gets picked up.

Our incident analysis report looks into the root cause of any breach you’ve experienced or even near misses – interrogating every user action which could have allowed malware into the network.

Monthly Key Risk Indicator reports help you understand the risk of phishing threats to your business and the level of user awareness – helping you identify training needs in your workforce.

By deploying updates remotely, we help to ensure that employee device security is as strong as it can be, offering them the best defence as they work from home.

Tony opens an email attachment from a known client; unfortunately his client’s laptop has been compromised and he opens a document infected with ransomware.

The ransomware starts to encrypt his shared folders, but in a sub-second response his desktop is quarantined by our anti-ransomware system which alerts the SOC team in real-time.

The SOC team notified the client’s IT team and commence incident response processes, using their SIEM they performed root cause analysis which identified the entry method of the malware (via email). The SOC obtained a copy of the malware for analysis in their malware labs, they detonated the malware safely to study its behaviour and identify its spreading mechanism to find it was wormable (able to spread across the network on open ports to vulnerable systems). The SOC also investigated the IPS alarms to identify any call backs to command and control servers.

Armed with this knowledge the SOC guided the IT Team during the recovery process to ensure the malware was not persistent and did not reinfect the systems after recovery or reattempt encryption.
