Cyber DFIR | Call in our DFIR experts when it matters most


Introducing Cyber DFIR

Cybercrime is becoming more sophisticated, more frequent, and more damaging every day. Even if you’re doing everything you can to protect and defend your IT environment, determined attackers may still target your organisation. And they may succeed. When disaster strikes, it pays to be prepared.

Cyber DFIR is our Digital Forensics and Incident Response retainer service designed for businesses that want all the benefits of a dedicated DFIR team – expertise, experience, and guaranteed security support when it matters most – as well as the flexibility of DFIR-as-a-service.


Incident Response Planning

Incident Response Planning is a proactive approach to managing and mitigating cybersecurity incidents within your environment. A structured set of procedures, protocols, and strategies to detect, respond to, and recover from security breaches, cyber-attacks, or any other disruptive events that may compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of data and systems will be developed.

This planning typically encompasses activities such as identifying potential threats, establishing clear roles and responsibilities for incident responders, implementing monitoring and detection mechanisms, defining escalation procedures, conducting regular drills and exercises to test the effectiveness of response plans, and continuously refining strategies based on lessons learned from past incidents. The ultimate goal is to minimise the impact of security breaches and maintain business operations with minimal disruption.

Forensic Readiness Planning

Forensic Readiness Planning involves the proactive preparation of your organisation’s systems, processes, and procedures to effectively gather, preserve, analyse, and present digital evidence in the event of a security incident or legal investigation. Encompassing activities such as defining data retention policies, establishing procedures for logging and monitoring, implementing technologies for digital evidence collection and preservation, training staff on forensic procedures, and ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

The aim is to enable your organisation to efficiently and accurately conduct forensic investigations, support incident response efforts, and facilitate legal proceedings while maintaining the integrity and admissibility of digital evidence.

Tabletop Exercises

Tabletop exercises are a form of simulation-based training that involves stakeholders discussing and practising their roles and responses to various simulated scenarios in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically used in fields like emergency management, cybersecurity, and business continuity planning, these exercises aim to assess your  preparedness, identify gaps in procedures, and enhance communication and coordination among participants.

You will walk through hypothetical scenarios, discussing how you would respond, making decisions, and addressing challenges without actually executing the actions. Tabletop exercises help you test your plans, improve decision-making skills, and build teamwork, ultimately enhancing your ability to respond effectively to real-life incidents.

Breach Simulations

Breach simulations, also known as cyberattack simulations or red team exercises, involve the deliberate and controlled simulation of a cyberattack on your systems, networks, or infrastructure.

Unlike tabletop exercises, breach simulations often involve real-time attacks carried out by internal or external cybersecurity experts posing as adversaries, known as red teams, to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the your defences. These simulations closely mimic the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of real cyber attackers, allowing you to assess your detection and response capabilities, test the effectiveness of your security controls, and identify areas for improvement.

By simulating realistic cyber threats, you can proactively strengthen your cybersecurity posture and better prepare for potential security breaches.

Attack Surface Monitoring

Attack surface monitoring involves the continuous surveillance and assessment of your digital footprint, including your networks, systems, applications, and online presence, to identify and mitigate potential security risks. This practice aims to understand and monitor the various entry points, or “attack surfaces,” that cyber attackers could exploit to infiltrate or compromise your assets.

This typically involves techniques such as vulnerability scanning, threat intelligence analysis, web application scanning, and monitoring of public-facing assets, social media channels, and third-party integrations. By actively monitoring your attack surface, you can proactively identify and address security vulnerabilities, reduce their exposure to cyber threats, and strengthen their overall cybersecurity posture.

Digital Forensic Investigations

Digital forensic investigations involve the systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of digital evidence to uncover the truth regarding cyber incidents, criminal activities, or policy violations. These investigations typically follow a structured process that includes the identification and preservation of digital evidence, analysis of data using specialised tools and techniques, and documentation of findings for legal or investigative purposes.

We make use of various methods to extract and examine data from computers, mobile devices, networks, and other digital storage media, aiming to reconstruct events, identify perpetrators, and establish timelines of activities. These investigations play a crucial role in incident response, legal proceedings, and regulatory compliance, helping you mitigate risks, enforce policies, and pursue justice.

Incident Response

Incident response is a structured approach to addressing and managing security incidents. It involves a series of steps aimed at detecting, containing, mitigating, and recovering from security breaches or cyber-attacks.

Key components of incident response include identification (recognising and categorising incidents), containment (limiting the impact and spread of the incident), eradication (removing the cause of the incident), recovery (restoring systems and data to normal operations), and lessons learned (analysing the incident to improve future response efforts).

Incident response teams collaborate across IT, security, legal, and business units to coordinate an effective response, minimise damage, and restore operations swiftly while preserving evidence for further analysis or legal proceedings.
