Incidence response and Digital Forensic Services

Dealing with Incidents and Digital Forensics

Incident response services deal with any known or suspected breach of your security. The main important goal is to detect the extent of the damage, take protective actions, collect and preserve evidence of criminal activities. A typical methodology for digital forensics which apply to Windows incidents as well as other OS platforms:

  1. Acquire the evidence without altering or damaging the original.
  2. Authenticate that your recovered evidence is the same as the originally seized data.
  3. Analyze the data without modifying it.

What Do you Need in a Incidence Response Plan

Every company needs to have an incident response plan in place - even if expert support is immediately available. Here is where Rapidsoft Systems can help you. Our experts will develop policies and procedures - and most importantly train the people on the front line of incident detection and response.

Rapidsoft Systems offers a whole new way to deal with incident response and forensics. Result of any forensic investigation is directly relevant to incident response. Incident Response, by definition, requires fast intervention which requires a use of framework for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). The ability to detect a threat, notify a security professional, perform a detailed investigation of that threat, and take appropriate actions is perhaps the most necessary function of Incidence Response Team. The United States government defines the requirement for incident response as needing to be "timely" and "rapid"—with good reasons. Every minute between the detection and notification of an incident, and the successful exploitation or theft of a protected asset, costs a company money, exposure, and liability.

Our security experts are trained to deal with emergencies and can help in the following ways.

1. Stop the Attack As Fast As You Can

The first objective of incident response is to stop the attack. Whether it’s internal or external, the attack can shut down your business, compromise confidential information, and erode the trust of your customers.

2. Contain the Damage

Once the attack has been stopped, we focus on minimizing damage and improving the system to prevent future incidents. Speed and quality are essential. They often determine the ability of a business to recover and contain damage.

3. Gather Forensic Evidence

We also investigate to determine the extent of the damage and gather evidence. Evidence is essential when credit card data or other confidential information has been compromised. It may also be part of legal or contractual requirements.

Computer or Digital Forensics

The goal of computer forensics, also known as Digital forensics, is to explain the current state of a digital artifact. The term digital artifact can include a computer system, a storage medium (such as a hard disk or CD-ROM), an electronic document (e.g. an email message or JPEG image) or even a sequence of packets moving over a computer network. The explanation can be as straightforward as "what information is here?" and as detailed as "what is the sequence of events responsible for the present situation?"

There are many reasons to employ the techniques of computer forensics:

Incident Response

In the unlikely event that an incident does occur, an efficient and organized response is required to minimize the impact and preserve evidence. Our Incident Response services include:

Forensics Support in Response to Incidence

We apply a best practice approach in searching for evidence by preserving the integrity of the source and authenticating and securing any evidence collected. Our Incident Handling services include:

Zero-Day Threats

Real-time, operational forensics allows a security professional to perform ad-hoc correlation of data to detect, track, and remediate complex attacks as they occur—the ability to provide zero-day response to complex threats. That means the ability to use a security tool to see threats that haven't yet been defined within event correlation rules (of course, pre-defined rules exist as well, for automation of well-known attacks).

An expert at Rapidsoft Systems can answer all the above questions and help your company assess your risks and create an effective policy for your organization.
