Progent's ransomware forensics experts can preserve the evidence of a ransomware attack and perform a comprehensive forensics investigation without interfering with the processes related to business resumption and data restoration. Your Denver business can utilize Progent's ransomware forensics documentation to block subsequent ransomware assaults, assist in the cleanup of lost data, and comply with insurance carrier and regulatory mandates.
Ransomware forensics analysis involves tracking and documenting the ransomware assault's storyline across the targeted network from start to finish. This audit trail of the way a ransomware assault progressed through the network assists you to assess the damage and uncovers vulnerabilities in policies or processes that should be rectified to avoid later breaches. Forensic analysis is usually given a top priority by the insurance provider and is typically mandated by state and industry regulations. Because forensic analysis can be time consuming, it is essential that other important recovery processes like operational continuity are pursued concurrently. Progent maintains an extensive roster of information technology and security professionals with the knowledge and experience required to carry out activities for containment, business continuity, and data recovery without disrupting forensic analysis.
Ransomware forensics is complex and calls for close cooperation with the teams assigned to data recovery and, if needed, payment discussions with the ransomware Threat Actor (TA). Ransomware forensics can involve the examination of all logs, registry, Group Policy Object, Active Directory (AD), DNS servers, routers, firewalls, scheduled tasks, and core Windows systems to detect changes.
Services involved with forensics include:
- Isolate without shutting down all possibly impacted devices from the system. This can require closing all Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) ports and Internet facing NAS storage, modifying admin credentials and user PWs, and implementing two-factor authentication to secure backups.
- Copy forensically complete digital images of all exposed devices so your file restoration group can get started
- Save firewall, virtual private network, and other critical logs as soon as feasible
- Establish the version of ransomware used in the attack
- Examine each computer and storage device on the network including cloud storage for indications of compromise
- Inventory all encrypted devices
- Establish the kind of ransomware used in the assault
- Review logs and sessions in order to determine the time frame of the assault and to identify any potential lateral movement from the first compromised system
- Understand the security gaps used to carry out the ransomware attack
- Look for the creation of executables surrounding the original encrypted files or network breach
- Parse Outlook PST files
- Examine attachments
- Separate any URLs embedded in email messages and check to see whether they are malware
- Produce detailed attack reporting to meet your insurance and compliance requirements
- Suggest recommended improvements to shore up security gaps and enforce processes that reduce the risk of a future ransomware breach
