Auto Incident Response

 CyBots combines Forensic Telemetry Analysis (FTA), lateral movement correlation, malware modeling, and global threat intelligence to one CyBots platform for orchestrated and automated modern security operation.

• Orchestrated and automated
• Forensics-level threat hunting

  It works in such a way that as soon as an attack is detected and an alarm is raised, your system automatically react by isolating the infected machines. With the right automated incident response tools, your IT security teams can stay in control and respond to intrusions swiftly.  While automation cannot replace human security analysts, it can allow analysts in conserving time for higher priorities and make the incident response processes run swiftly.

  If you rely on manual processes to contain and investigate a malware intrusion, it means you are faced with a long to-do list of tedious tasks: identifying all the infected systems, researching the threat, gathering event logs from different locations to investigate, and more. And if your security solution bombards you with noisy alarms, you might not realise you have something significant on your hands until the damage has progressed.

  But with automated incident response tools, you can shorten your to-do list. With orchestration and automation tools, you can automate actions like – fetching additional forensics data, disabling networking on an infected system, running automated vulnerability scans to identify other at-risk systems, and isolating those as well until you have a chance to patch or otherwise address them. By automating the incident response activities that do not impact business operations, you can work more efficiently.

  If you have a breach, it is imperative that you understand the scope of what critical information this breach provides. This critical information  would show you what happened and how it affects your organisation. If sensitive customer data has been exposed or corrupted, you need to know right away. However, getting the information you need often means engaging in repetitive, manual actions like going into each system to review its events and logs to try to piece together how the breach took place and what was compromised.

  Here, with our solution, it aggregates events and logs from across all your systems and networks, so you can get the information you need right away using powerful search and filtering capabilities.

  Let’s say there is an intrusion into your system, with automation capabilities, you can immediately move from detection to response by blocking the domain automatically when your intrusion detection system detects the threat.

  Another example to look at. If your security plan relies a lot on manual work, and when you encounter a new ransomware variant, this might send you into a panic. In this case, automation can help you before an incident even occurs.

  A product that builds actionable threat intelligence updates into your security plan can ensure you’re up-to-date to detect new vulnerabilities and threats without needing to do your own research and setting up your own threat detection rules.

What is ‘Orchestration’?

  Orchestration is the ability to coordinate decision-making, and automate swift actions based on an assessment of risks and environment states.

An example: Suspicious email

  Orchestration can investigate whether the sender has bad reputation, via threat intelligence and uses available tools to confirm the origin. These tools can automatically extract hyperlinks and validate them via URL reputation, detonate the links in a safe environment, or run attachments in a sandbox. Then, if an incident is confirmed, a playbook is run. The playbook looks in the email system to find all messages from the same sender or with the same links or attachments and quarantines them.

What is ‘Automation’?

  Automation is related to orchestration—it is machine-driven execution of actions on security tools and IT systems, as part of a response to an incident. These tools allow security teams to define standardised automation steps and a decision-making workflow, with enforcement, status tracking and auditing capabilities. Automation relies on security playbooks, which analysts can code using a visual UI or a programming language like Python.

To Future You.
