Our PFI services are deployed in case of cardholder data compromise to determine the root cause and remediate issues.
Compromise Assessment Services
We run a full compromise assessment to identify digital attacks and verify their presence.
Our e-Discovery services securely capture, process, and analyze data and deliver it in a format that can be presented as evidence.
Incident Response & Breach Remediation
Defeat cyber threats and fix the vulnerabilities that left you exposed in the first place with our incident response remediation services.
What is DFIR?
The digital forensics process can be compared to an archeological dig on digital devices for historical artifacts. It involves thorough analysis on items such as computers, tablets, smartphones, flash drives, and hard drives, and more, with the goal of producing data artifacts that explain both the cause of a digital compromise and the impact to your organization.
In digital forensics, it’s important that forensically sound methods of analysis are used. We use specialized data recovery techniques and principles and follow guidelines and practices required if the evidence is to be legally viable to stand up in a court of law or withstand a challenge during an insurance claim.
What Sets Intersec Apart From the Competition in DFIR?
DFIR cybersecurity services are a blend of two separate trade crafts: digital forensics and incident response. At Intersec, we are forensic experts and incident response experts. While some agencies specialize in one or the other, Intersec blends both within its model and knowledge base.
Relying on incident response alone may be a band-aid solution for the problem, as it often doesn’t impact the root cause in order to prevent future attacks. As incident responders dig into an ongoing incident, they reach a point where they need additional analysis performed or a forensic model built.
The forensics component requires that we also dive deep into historical data, using intense examination to gather data and find the cause. This is particularly important in the many cases where legal action will be taken. An organization needs to be able to provide solid evidence of the attack.
DFIR provides a faster, more effective process that sees security situations investigated thoroughly and remediated quickly.
With IBM finding that incident response planning continues to lower the costs of a security incident (by 43 percent in 2021), it simply makes sense to ensure the appropriate measures are in place.
How is Digital Forensics Used in the Incident Response Plan?
Digital forensics is a crucial part of any incident response plan. Without discovering the cause and methods behind an incident, response teams are only doing half a job. Utilizing digital forensics has multiple benefits, including enabling you to determine the cause of the incident and reliably identify the scope and impact.
A full investigation also avoids the trap of overlooking key information that may lead to future attacks. Using digital forensics will ensure we discover all vulnerabilities that led to an attack or error. Our forensic incident response team is then equipped to remediate the situation as efficiently as possible.
How to Choose a DFIR Service Provider
Choosing a computer forensics and incident response service provider can seem like an overwhelming task, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
One key thing to look out for is a provider that has vast experience in both areas.
Because of the legal aspect involved in DFIR, it’s crucial that you employ highly experienced professionals for the task. What’s more, providers must have the necessary tools to carry out a thorough investigation.
From the digital forensics perspective, advanced computer forensic tools are used to examine devices, disks, and other items and analyze recovered data.
For incident response, specialized tools are required to determine attack scope and threat priorities and find any undetected incidents and other anomalies.
DFIR can involve large projects with lots of moving parts, so it's imperative that project management is at the forefront of your provider's expertise.
