The Issue

Continuously test your entire security infrastructure to identify where your security is working, where there are gaps, and which are the highest priority to fix based on potential damage to your business.

Continuous testing will assist your organisation to build up its cyber resilience. As networks, users, devices, and applications constantly change and expose vulnerabilities as a result, it is critical validate your cybersecurity posture continuously to keep your guard up at all times.

In addition, continuous, automated testing of your entire security infrastructure using simulation technology and identifies where your security is working, where there are routes of compromise to your Crown Jewels and which are the highest priority to fix based on potential damage to your business.

The Solution

Having an up to date list of assets is of great importance. The first two CIS Critical Controls are:

  • Inventory and Control of Hardware Assets
  • Inventory and Control of Software Assets

In addition, an organisation needs to identify it’s Crown Jewels.

MITRE Definition: Crown Jewels Analysis (CJA) is a process for identifying those cyber assets that are most critical to the accomplishment of an organization’s mission.

Making use of Automated Cyber Risk Assessment tools to continuously provide an up to date list of Public-Facing assets and highlight all exploitable weaknesses along with Automated Breach and Attack Simulation accomplishes the task of continuous testing of both external and internal assets and infrastructure.

The MITRE ATT&CK kill chain identifies Tactic, Techniques and Procedures that adversaries and threat actors follow to gain a foot hold in an organisation while attempting to access the Crown Jewels. Testing for gaps in the kill chain identifies areas of vulnerability that may be exploited by adversaries and threat actors.

Benefits Of Our Approach:

This approach provides an organisation with continuous visibility of all their assets and infrastructure including discovery of new assets and the removal of old. Other benefits are:

  • Continuous visibility of Cyber Risk posture and if it complies to an organisations cyber risk appetite;
  • Ability to test “what if” scenarios and compromise from threat actors in-line with the N.I.S.T. principles of Protect, Detect and Respond.
  • Understand the effectiveness of security controls including SOC Playbooks to counter and adversary
  • Identification of MITRE ATT&CK Kill Chain gaps which identifies Crown Jewel paths of compromise.

How We Can Help:

Elasticito provides class leading Cyber Risk Assessment and Breach and Attack Simulation solutions backed by a robust Professional Service advisory, project management and implementation programme.

The objective of this solution is to enable organisation to improve their current security posture with their existing solutions that they have invested in which may not be optimised to deliver maximum resilience.
