Threat Management Solutions Proactively Confront Threats Challenges Optiv’s Approach Services Related Resources Our Team Business Speed + Threat Complexity = Reactive Threat Management Network connections, apps, websites, social media, mobile, email and more – security threats come in from every direction. Adopting IoT, virtual environments and cloud applications are probably stretching your security program because it wasn’t built to align with your business operations. And then third-party open-source components add even more complexity, and “who does what?” in IT complicates the task of tracking issues. It’s nearly impossible to detect and manage things across this ever-changing environment. You can’t fix what you can’t find, and hackers are getting better at hiding every day. Buying more tools as a reaction to specific threats can make integration and remediation more difficult. It’s a growing problem, and it doesn’t help bridge security and IT operations, reduce risk, or communicate ROI to the board. Image Hackers are getting better at hiding every day. What Is Threat Management? Threat management is a framework and related set of practices that enable organizations to continuously identify, assess, classify and respond to threats and related vulnerabilities, using proven remediation and mitigation techniques and best practices, to reduce dwell time and minimize cyber risks faster and with more accuracy. It’s about identifying your organization’s attack surface, leveraging your existing security controls to maximize the value of your current investments, knowing where security gaps exist, and understanding which applications, assets, services, and information technology (IT) environments (whether cloud-based, virtual, or on-premise) are most appealing to threat actors. Having a well-planned, fully-staffed, threat and vulnerability management capability allows you to identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities and malicious activity faster, respond more rapidly to security incidents, reduce threat actor dwell time, remediate issues and more naturally, “build security in” – from the beginning – into your overall IT infrastructure, applications and related services. Your Current Threat Management Approach Could Leave You Vulnerable Here’s why your organization may not be aware of its complete risk picture from threats and vulnerabilities. Infrastructure Complexity Growing attack surfaces, new policies and technologies, and not knowing roles and responsibilities can reduce your visibility to threats and increase the risk of a breach. Compliance-Driven Approach Your organization may be reactive to threats, opting for a tactical or compliance-driven approach, which can increase the frequency of attacks and recovery time. Lack of Readiness The ability to quickly detect and respond to an incident dramatically affects how much damage can be done to your data, environment, reputation and financial well-being. Why You Need a Better Threat Management Solution Effective threat management is about knowing what your attack surface is comprised of, understanding where security gaps exist and what assets are most appealing to threat actors, and honing the ability to detect – while ensuring a quick and effective response. It’s a stable four-legged stool. Remove any one leg … and it collapses. As your organization evolves, new technologies and policies must be integrated strategically, not just deployed tactically (and perhaps even haphazardly) and compliance should be the result of the plan, not its entire purpose. With Optiv’s holistic threat management approach, you can: Discover strengths and weaknesses Identify vulnerabilities and malicious activity faster than standard detection methods Respond rapidly and reduce threat actor dwell time Remediate issues and naturally build security Optiv Threat Management Services Image Attack & Penetration Testing Image Attacker Simulation / Red & Purple Teaming Image Incident Readiness Image Remediation Services Image Incident Response Image Threat Intelligence Optiv’s Approach to Threat Management Attack & Penetration Threat Hunt Purple Team Incident Response & Remediation Do More Than Test – Respond to Threats Unknown weaknesses in your software, hardware and end-user environments are a playground for cyber attackers. Regular testing is essential, but your organization benefits even more from training and resources that go beyond testing. Predict and preempt attacks, preparing your response before the hackers are even out of bed. Establishing and maintaining an active defense of your assets can be daunting, and it’s critical to know that your current controls are working and that your bases are covered. Our attack and penetration services emulate sophisticated hacker strategies to uncover vulnerabilities and generate insight toward remediation. Elite ethical hackers. Forward-thinking researchers. Veteran cyber threat pros. These teams employ advanced attack tools to conduct network penetration testing that helps you identify and mitigate vulnerabilities, protect your network, your assets, your business, and your people. Get Insider a Hacker’s Mind Attackers love unknown weaknesses in your software, hardware and end-user environments. In this infographic, learn the steps you can take to actively defend your assets, ensure your current controls are working and cover your cybersecurity bases. Get Infographic Purple Teaming – Inside-Out Collaboration is essential to detecting and preventing insider threats. Our purple teaming exercises: Unite subject matter expertise from offensive operators and incident responders Demonstrate how adversarial TTPs can be employed in your environment Evaluate the ability to identify those TTPs Workshop possible responses Because our exercises are human-driven, we can iterate scenarios on the fly, mimicking the creativity you’d expect from actual hackers. They’re always determined and sometimes may be influenced or supported by a sophisticated third party. They might even be emotionally compromised and irrational or actively destructive. We can work through all these scenarios and a lot more. We’re battle-tested and deeply experienced with the frameworks and mentalities driving modern purple teaming. Listen in below. Source Zero / Con – Purple Teaming Inside-Out Don’t miss Optiv Engineering Fellow Curtis Fecher and Attack and Penetration pros Matthew Eidelberg and Joshua Platz for this pre-recorded breakout session from Source Zero Con. You’ll discover how we approach Purple Teaming (it’s not typical and that’s the value), hear a breakdown of execution, get into some technical weeds, enjoy some war stories and end with a Q&A. Watch Video Incident Response & Remediation Incident response (IR) is the actions your organization takes to manage what happens after a security breach or cyberattack. Typical activities in incident response include identifying/containing/eradicating the issue and recovering the impacted systems. Optiv can help you respond and recover with advice, guidance and hands-on expertise. Our services include securing the scene, defining the scope of the compromise, collecting and analyzing data related to the event, and issuing a report documenting the findings. In the event of an incident, we can help uncover the attackers’ actions, detail the scope of the compromise, identify steps to mitigate or limit data loss, and secure your business against future attacks. Post-Incident Remediation (PIR) Optiv’s Post-Incident Remediation service is a rapid remediation and restoration service designed to help clients with an immediate need-to-counter business interruptions. Our security remediation and restoration experts can be available for remote or on-site support. Get Brief Image Surviving an Attack Discover how an effective Cybersecurity Incident Response Plan (CSIRP) can guide your organization’s management of a potential data breach in a way that supports rapid – yet still thoughtful – actions. Get the confidence, even in trying times, that operations can be restored to normal. The result is much less overwhelming in times of chaos.
