Your Tucson business can use Progent's forensics documentation to combat subsequent ransomware attacks, assist in the cleanup of encrypted data, and comply with insurance and governmental requirements.
Ransomware forensics investigation involves tracking and documenting the ransomware assault's progress across the network from beginning to end. This audit trail of how a ransomware assault travelled within the network helps you to assess the impact and uncovers weaknesses in policies or work habits that should be corrected to avoid later breaches. Forensic analysis is usually assigned a high priority by the cyber insurance carrier and is typically required by state and industry regulations. Because forensics can be time consuming, it is essential that other key activities such as operational resumption are executed in parallel. Progent has a large roster of information technology and security experts with the knowledge and experience needed to carry out activities for containment, business resumption, and data restoration without disrupting forensic analysis.
Ransomware forensics is complicated and requires intimate cooperation with the groups focused on data cleanup and, if necessary, payment discussions with the ransomware Threat Actor (TA). forensics typically require the examination of all logs, registry, GPO, AD, DNS, routers, firewalls, scheduled tasks, and basic Windows systems to check for variations.
Services involved with forensics analysis include:
- Disconnect without shutting down all possibly affected devices from the network. This may require closing all Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) ports and Internet facing network-attached storage, modifying admin credentials and user passwords, and setting up two-factor authentication to protect backups.
- Create forensically valid images of all exposed devices so your data recovery team can get started
- Preserve firewall, VPN, and other key logs as soon as possible
- Determine the type of ransomware used in the assault
- Examine every machine and storage device on the network including cloud storage for indications of compromise
- Catalog all compromised devices
- Establish the kind of ransomware involved in the attack
- Review log activity and sessions to determine the time frame of the ransomware attack and to spot any potential lateral migration from the first compromised system
- Identify the attack vectors used to perpetrate the ransomware attack
- Search for the creation of executables surrounding the first encrypted files or network compromise
- Parse Outlook web archives
- Analyze attachments
- Separate any URLs from email messages and determine if they are malicious
- Produce detailed incident documentation to satisfy your insurance carrier and compliance regulations
- List recommendations to shore up security vulnerabilities and improve workflows that lower the risk of a future ransomware breach
