Unauthorised change

Keeping a close eye on your IT
How we help

Security threat

IT is the foundation of the modern workplace. Business operations depend on it and employees expect it to be working smoothly, all of the time, in order for them to carry out their jobs. This is why unauthorised changes to your infrastructure, business systems or website can cause significant disruption.

Unauthorised changes can occur both internally or externally, by malicious intent or by accident. Employees with IT privileges may, in an attempt to speed up working practices, inadvertently make changes or upgrades to systems which alter the effectiveness of the security controls in place. In some cases, insiders may deliberately carry out unauthorised changes to cause disruption. External hackers, if successful in breaking through your network perimeter, may tamper with system settings or website coding to make your IT more vulnerable to future attack. Unnoticed, these changes could lead to serious consequences further down the line. Tracking these back and reconciling changes against formal change management processes and systems is crucial in identifying those which are accidental versus those with a more targeted and malicious intent.

Protection against the potential consequences lies in being able to detect any successful or attempted changes that take place within your network, so that you can react in time to prevent any negative increase regarding IT infrastructure impact. But keeping tabs on every action to spot unauthorised access can be a complex and wide-reaching task. That’s where a Security Operations Centre can really help.

How we help

24hr SIEM monitoring and reconciliation helps our SOC team to detect any changes in your network or business systems.

We help you establish user profiles and privileges so that your employees have access only to the business systems they need to carry out their roles, minimising the number of people who have access to any one part of your IT.

With experts on watch around the clock, we provide a quick response to any threats detected before they result in business disruption.

An audit trail linked to user privileges provides employee accountability – helping to trace when unauthorised changes took place and who made them, so the appropriate course of action can be taken.

Intrusion detection and prevention technology (IDS/IPS) flags up and blocks any attempts to breach your perimeter, preventing unauthorised access to your network.

End user trust management delivered as part of our SOC solutions helps protect your business from internal threats, preventing unauthorised access to data and systems.

Our SOC experts use human intellect to contextualise events detected by the security technologies in place in your business, so they can spot anything out of the ordinary.

Our cyber security tools natively integrate with the most widely-used business systems and clouds, and we can also create custom connections for more bespoke services, helping us to keep watch across your complete IT stack.
