This experience has informed our processes and protocols and streamlined our methods for getting companies back up and running with the greatest efficiency.

How would your organization manage a cyber attack?

INCIDENT RESPONSE PLANNING

Solis Security offers advisory services for the creation, review and maintenance of an organization-wide cybersecurity Incident Response Plan (“IRP”). We leverage standards and frameworks that speak to Incident Response, such as the Computer Security Incident Handling Guide published by NIST, the Incident Response Reference Guide published by Microsoft, Guidance on Response Programs for Unauthorized Access to Customer Information and Customer published by the FFIEC, and more.

The IRP will factor in process and compliance requirements of all facets of the organization, including: business resumption, compliance, legal, partner, customers and culture. The IRP is a living document that requires ongoing review and updating which reflects the client’s technology changes, business changes and changes in the threat landscape.

INCIDENT RESPONSE: TABLETOP EXERCISE

A Tabletop Exercise assesses the viability of an organization’s Incident Response Plan (IRP) by testing it against a variety of simulated cyber attacks.

Solis Security will facilitate the Tabletop Exercise and offer insight on plan deficiencies or areas for improvement. Our security analysts will provide detailed documentation outlining proposed changes to the IRP and can assist the client in making any updates.

An IRP Tabletop Exercise should be performed at least annually; however, if an organization has material changes to the environment during the course of the year, such as an acquisition or migration to a new accounting platform, etc., another test may be required.

How are DFIR Services from Solis Security different?

Remote Service for faster business resumption.

After a cyber attack, you need to resume business as quickly as possible. That’s why, unlike most others in our industry, Solis Security developed an almost entirely remote Business Resumption process. Our analysts are able to service and restore your systems, without the added time and expense of sending technicians on-site. While we look good in our logo’d polo shirts, you really don’t need to see us in person for us to get the job done.

Our Complete DFIR Solution means more efficiency and fewer errors.

Many other cybersecurity companies offer only part of the entire DFIR solution, but at Solis Security our in-house Business Resumption and Forensics teams work together, often simultaneously, to remediate cyber attacks. Because there is no transition from one company to another, our analysts are more cognizant of the way evidence and other data is handled, reducing the errors and lag time that are often seen during these hand-overs. Ultimately this means a swifter resolution with more comprehensive data analytics.

Unmatched Ransom Negotiation Experience.

An unfortunate reality of cybersecurity attacks are ransom demands. Once your system is stalled in a ransomware attack, your pain is leveraged into cash demands. Solis Security has managed ransom negotiations for hundreds of organizations, often dealing with the same threat actors on multiple occasions. Our approach is to understand what data has been stolen, then using our significant insight on the tactics of these various organizations to reduce pay-outs.

Efficient, cost-effective Forensics.

For most organizations, data from a select number of machines can provide all of the information needed to perform a forensics analysis after an attack. Extending those reviews to dozens, or even hundreds, of machines is unnecessary, yet many other cyber forensics companies still insist on this approach. Our Forensics Analytics can typically pinpoint the data they need using just a handful of machines, which keeps costs low and speeds up the forensics process.

Legal and Insurance Expertise.

Solis has working relationships with most of the top cyber and breach law firms and insurance carriers in North America, including our parent company CFC Underwriting. We are fully versed in the intricacies of cybersecurity legal issues and insurance policies and will help streamline your claims process by providing the appropriate documentation with the required terminology and backing.
