Our Services

CyberUnited’s incident prevention and response services are provided with minimum disruption to the business and are carried out closely with internal security teams, in-house/outside legal counsel, and company management to ensure that necessary remediation steps are carried out with minimum organizational impact. Our process includes evidence preservation, forensic investigation, working with law enforcement agencies, issuing forensic reports, and, if necessary, testifying in depositions and hearings.

We utilize state-of-the-art tools and methodologies including digital forensics, volatile evidence preservation and investigation, network forensics, and binary analysis of malicious programs. This strategy provides for the broadest based approach and often results in identification and eradication of malware that antivirus software suites often miss. In addition, this approach often allows us to evaluate the sophistication of a hacker and determine if the attacker was a low-level “script-kiddy”, current or ex-employee, or a sophisticated hacker.

If Personal Information, including PCI and PHI data, was accessed, CyberUnited can often determine the extent of the damage and what information hackers compromised. Our assessments are a key component in decisions made by management. They counsel as to whether or not compliance with state and/or federal breach notification regulation is required and if a “risk of harm” threshold for notice has been met in jurisdictions that have this standard.

Since the nature and severity of an incident is often difficult to establish at first glance, services are priced at an hourly rate. Some response and forensic services tend to be utilized for more complicated breach situations. The following comprise the main components of our Computer Incident Response Team Services:

Before

Strategic Assessment

CyberUnited can help to reduce the environment’s exposure to cyber threats through a holistic and rigorous hardening process. This includes device configuration review, application code review, network design analysis, penetration testing, and other services. All of these approaches combined help to minimize the chance of a successful breach, as well as limit the extent of the damage one might have.

Health Check

CyberUnited will perform a number of simulations and tests for an organization to ensure that it is ready in the event of a breach. Breach testing comes in a number of forms, such as:

  • Fake Malware Deployment
  • Social Engineering
  • Fake Spam Testing

Cyber Value at Risk

CyberUnited’s decision support product quantifies an organization’s financial risk exposure to cyber attacks. This enables executives to see the financial impact of vulnerabilities and potential security incidents. It arms them with the information they need to make smarter business decisions and manage risk.

Policies & Procedures

Part of a comprehensive solution to proper incident response involves the creation and dissemination of a complete document containing all relevant policies and procedures. CyberUnited can help create and implement these documents within an organization, which can significantly reduce the spread and scope for any incident, and improve resolution.

Legal & Compliance

CyberUnited conducts cybersecurity compliance reviews to assess the effectiveness of a company’s safeguarding procedures that manage security threats and ensure the safety of sensitive consumer data.

Privacy

Our privacy experts can help organizations unlock the value of data, while ensuring compliance with U.S. and non-U.S. laws and standards that regulate the collection, use, sharing and protection of data; establish access and authorization rights to data sets as they are collected; and co-locate these rights with relevant data sets when moved or stored. CyberUnited can help organizations negotiate this continuously evolving landscape.

Training

Employee awareness is an important part of a holistic incident response procedure. CyberUnited can help to train employees on how to handle ad respond to any suspected incident. This will help to preserve evidence, or prevent an escalation of an incident.

Proper response by employees will greatly speed up investigations and reduce its spread. CyberUnited can train and prepare an organization’s staff to be ready for any incident that may occur, especially for a breach. This can help to minimize damage and reduce the scope, as well as maximize recoverable evidence. It is important all teams know what to do in an emergency, and training can streamline this process into an effective solution.

Cyber & Web Application Security

Secure code is a foundational piece of any resilient IT network. As more software code “goes online” in the form of mobile and portable applications, secure code is more important than ever. The most common security risks include Injection Flaws (such as SQL Injection), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities, broken authentication, session management, insecure direct object references, non-sanitized input, un-validated redirects and forwards, insecure cryptographic storage and PKI implementation, and insufficient transport layer protection. CyberUnited’s team of security experts can assess your software and web applications for known vulnerabilities, as well as provide a thorough risk assessment.

Post-breach, we put web application firewalls in place to block malicious activity.

Emergency Response Team as a Service

Incident Response is a largely overlooked component of a complete security plan. Without a proper incident response, a breach’s damage could grow exponentially. CyberUnited provides a flexible Incident Response team that is always ready to respond to an incident.

Our flexible Incident Response Team plan drives maximum utilization of our expert team while maintaining a cost effective price. We respond quicker than most large competitors as we see this as an added benefit in the relationship with you; our client. Included is an incident response training to give internal staff the correct procedures on how to solve minor incidents or prepare a scene during a major one for our responders to quickly begin working.


Physical Assessment

CyberUnited can help to ensure that a company is ready for a breach by having a high level of cyber security maturity. This ensures that all methods and procedures are up to standards and are well maintained. It can also help to identify weak spots in the cyber security infrastructure. Preparation is key to minimizing the amount of damage an attack may have.


During

Incident Response / Reporting

Reports on every incident are provided by CyberUnited, including any relevant research and diagrams. These reports allow an organization to benefit by learning from the nature of each incident and which changes can help. Reports are provided on a monthly basis, even if there are no major incidents, which can help assess the health of the cyber infrastructure.

Forensics Cybercrime and fraud are taking on new dimensions with modern technology and the Internet. Our forensic services could even assist your organization with investigations of organized cybercrime, orchestrated fraud, and other digital fraud related to computers and/or the Internet. Our consultants can perform in-depth analyses of computer forensic artifacts and various systems.

Expert opinions can be provided to answer questions regarding:

  • When a user used a computer (date and time)
  • What files were accessed, created, and modified on the computer or media
  • Whether a user accessed certain websites and/or downloaded document or program
  • If a USB drive was used on the computer and if files were transferred
  • If time and date stamps of files on the computer were tampered with
  • Whether financial databases were maliciously modified or tampered with
  • If a specific file was printed, or sent via email
  • Artifacts of programs utilized by computer user
  • If a user intended to cover up and massively delete data

Malware Analysis

Our Malware Analysts use practical skills to examine malicious programs that target and infect Windows and other systems. Understanding the capabilities of malware is critical activity in deriving threat intelligence, responding to information security incidents and fortifying defenses.  We use reverse-engineering of malicious software and use a variety of system and network monitoring utilities, disassemblers, debuggers and other tools to gain a full understanding of a target software.

Hacking & Incidents

Email fraud and phishing is a big player in security breaches. CyberUnited can be called to respond to any incident involving email. This will include source analysis and blacklisting on email filters. Email exploits result in the largest, most expansive breaches, so alerting CyberUnited at the slightest concern may help to catch an attack early.

Cyber Extortion & Data Ransoming

In the event a machine(s) gets compromised, CyberUnited can help an organization negotiate with cyber extortionists, while remediating the incident. Data ransoming is becoming more common, and a team experienced in the procedure can help to minimize the time and ransom amount of getting the data back.

Data Breach Response

Breaches can happen at any moment, and CyberUnited will be there to help. Besides the forensic services, CyberUnited is able to aid in any step of the breach remediation, including security hardening and recovery and threat intelligence gathering.

Any incident that occurs can be escalated to warrant a more in-depth examination. CyberUnited looks into all known or suspected courses of incident, allowing for an accurate determination of the cause of the incident. CyberUnited can also provide remediation steps to fix the problem.
