Security threat

There are various motivations for hackers to carry out web attacks. They could be trying to damage the reputation of your organisation by defacing your website, such is the case with so-called ‘hacktivists’. Often, the driver is financial gain. This might be tampering with payment systems to make large purchases at minimal cost, or piggy-backing off your ecommerce site to divert payment collection. Last but not least, most websites sit above a database of customer or company information, so data theft can be a big incentive for attackers who can then sell or use the data for their own gain.

Web attacks are carried out by specifically attacking the code of web applications, such as the CMS. By exploiting weaknesses in the code, hackers are able to alter and manipulate it to their own ends. Many CMS sites use a common framework which can be particularly vulnerable, so bolstering your security against web attacks is even more important.

How we help

Integrating any web application firewalls into the SOC provides a strong defence. This high-throughput technology provides some of the most critical and comprehensive security log data, which is backed up by expert analysis and reactivity.

We stay up to date with the OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities, checking your website to ensure it complies with best practice guidance.

The more of the right protections you have in place, the higher the likelihood we will automatically stop emerging attacks thereby limiting any proliferation.

We also monitor the business systems that hook into your website, such as cloud-based CRM, accounting or ERP systems, to ensure strong defences at every touchpoint

Our Intrusion Detection and Prevention services keep watch on your network perimeter. Data from these systems is correlated against your web application firewall to identify, classify and respond to malicious activity.

DLP technologies deployed as part of your SOC stop data exfiltration attempts should a hacker attempt a break-in to your CMS.

We offer the flexibility to Roll Out Roll In (RORI) services to scale with your business as it evolves and we prove the how useful (or not) your existing security products may be.

Following the discovery of the Log4J vulnerability attackers attempt to discover vulnerabilities on perimeter facing systems with intention of installing Cobalt Strike to gain a foothold on these systems.

On identification of the Log4J vulnerability, the SOC initiated a critical threat advisory to the client and initiated perimeter and internal scans for this vulnerability.

The SOC team liaised with the clients IT department and third parties to ensure that systems were appropriately patched in accordance with the vendor guidance for the software and systems operating on their networks.

The SIEM system was used to monitor for any indicators of compromise through correlation of the client’s security log feeds.

Patching and vulnerability management is basic security good practice and part of expected security due diligence.
