Regularly Validating Security Controls with Breach and Attack Simulation

Regularly Validating Security Controls with Breach and Attack Simulation   Validating Security Controls is of vital importance for all organisations and is mandated by Cyber Security Frameworks like National Institute of Standards and Technology (N.I.S.T.) who offer a simple high-level way to do this using 5 steps:   IDENTIFY (CROWN JEWELS) PROTECT DETECT RESPOND RECOVER   To emphasise the importance of validating Security Control on a regular basis think of pilots doing a pre-flight check and inspection of their aircraft. Not performing these checks and inspections could lead to a loss of license for the pilots and the airline as it is mandatory and so should validating your organisation’s Security Controls. Simplistically you start by Identifying a Crown Jewel which could be an Endpoint, A Domain Controller or a Business Application. The next step is to detail and understand the attack vectors, which could be infiltration via email or a

Breach and Attack Simulation vs Penetration Testing

Breach and Attack Simulation vs Penetration Testing Cyber attacks have evolved dramatically in the past decades. The capabilities, scope, fallout and number of targets of these attacks have greatly increased. This has resulted in damages from cybercrimes reaching all time, worldwide highs which are only set to increase. As a result, organisations are finding it necessary to test their organisation’s cyber security posture on the regular. Elasticito can help you navigate this process to find a solution suitable to your organisation. MITRE-ATT&CK-APT3+APT29 | Elasticito A Common Question! A common question people evaluating cyber security testing options for their organisations ask us is: “how does Breach & Attack Simulation differ from penetration testing”? The simple and shortest answer to this question is that both have their own part to play in making enterprise cyber defences more effective. Breach & Attack Simulation (BAS) are tools that allow businesses to simulate

You Should Adopt a Cyber Security Framework – Here’s Why

You Should Adopt a Cyber Security Framework – Here’s Why Today, cyber attacks and cyber security breaches are constantly happening around the world. These attacks are also continuously evolving, becoming more sophisticated and unforeseen. This makes it difficult for organisations to proactively prevent phising, malware and ransomware attacks. So what can your organisation do to become resilient to cyber threats? A suitable cyber security framework and cyber security policies and procedures can reinforce your organisation’s IT security.       Cyber Security Framework A growing number of organisations are coming to the realisation that their extensive investment in cyber security technologies has not provided the resilience to cyber attacks that they were expecting and are looking for answers as to why they are still susceptible to phishing, ransomware and malware. The answer to this susceptibility conundrum lies in the understanding and adoption of a Cyber Security Framework (CSF). This doesn't mean that blindly adopting
