IT Security Services

Businesses want to transform themselves to be technologically advanced. But what stops them from achieving it? Lack of technical knowledge and the fear of their precious data falling into the wrong hands. This is where IT security services come to the rescue. IT security is a combination of people, technology and procedures.

There is a growing need for professionals who are responsible for the security in private networks, help businesses avoid attacks on the internal systems, to keep the databases secure and minimize the damage incurred (if any).

A Security Operation Centre (SOC) in a business is a team of engineers who detect, identify and troubleshoot the IT security issues. The main functions of this tier are Detection, Classification and Escalation of attacks. They are also responsible to find the most effective ways to mitigate the cyber attacks. A lot of benchmarking, planning and negotiating is required before establishing the SOC. Security Operation Centre needs to be scaled.

Steps of having a Security Operation Centre (SOC) for your organization:

  • Identify data sources: Network activity/IT security events (firewalls, IDS/IPS, netflow, vulnerability scanners), threat intelligence (internal and external feeds), Endpoint activity (ETDR, DNS, DHCP, AV, OS logs) and authorization (LDAP, Active directory, VPN, SSO).
  • Security Intelligence platform: Responsible for bringing data from different data sources, and correlates, identifies and helps in preparing SOC for an upcoming threat by alerting them about it.
  • Case Management system: To track events throughout the history of SOC and acts as a communication point between SOC and the affected part. We need to ensure that the technologies and platforms used sync with the information system i.e. the parameters of compatibility need to be ensured.

Digital Forensic:

Digital Forensics experts investigate and analyze digital media to discover and recover data stores on digital devices. It is used for IP and Internal investigations, which is the most common type of corporate use case. It involves the instances of fraud, patent issues, wrongful death or personal injury or even harassment. Evidences in this case include laptops, social media applications and mobile phones.

The second use case of digital forensic is in data recovery. This is when due to human error or storage device malfunction, lost and/or hidden files need to be recovered into its original form. Digital Forensic is not a quick process , contrary to the popular opinion.

The final use case is in the case of a cyber attack. New tools are being developed and existing tools are also being manipulated to get the best data security for the business.

Types of Cyber risk management solutions:

Cyber IT security is a major concern for businesses because of the increasing number of Cyberattacks happening around the world.

  • Perimeter security – It acts as a barrier between the Internet and your network. Mobile services, Cloud technologies and web services have a vast web of connections and that makes it all the more important to get an IT security support. The IT security services include Firewalls, Intrusion preventions system and Spam protection etc.
  • Intranet Security – This type of IT security services will protect individual devices and computers that have managed to come into your local network. Updating and patching software and Antimalware software are the strategies for Intranet security.
  • Human security – IT security threats are not only from the people outside the organization. At times, employees of the organization are not properly aware of the technologies and make mistakes that can cause IT security threats. By providing security awareness training to the employees and conducting security testing to ensure that the employees have received proper training.
