Protect what’s most important

The Cybersecurity Threatscape

What began as individuals attacking businesses for fun has transformed into an organized and highly-profitable cybercrime industry. Cybercriminals are professional; they work out of offices, have structured management, and use specialized tools. You can no longer ignore the very real threat cybercrime poses to your business. Without proper cybersecurity planning, your business is vulnerable to cybersecurity risks, including

Phishing & Spear Phishing Attacks

Fraudulent emails or phone calls attempt to steal money or valuable data by impersonating a trusted contact.

Ransomware Attacks

A type of malware attack that locks you out of critical systems or data, requiring you to make payments to restore access.

IT Vulnerability Exploits

Leverages known weaknesses within your IT environment to gain access to privileged data and systems. (ex. log4j)

Credential Theft

Purchase leaked credentials from the dark web or trick your people into divulging their credentials, gaining entry into your environment.

You are up against the entire cybercrime industry, and they are continuously developing new methods to steal from your business or your contacts. There is no such thing as being 100% protected from cyberthreats. However, you can drastically mitigate your potential damages by developing a security plan that controls your risks through effective technical and management controls, using modern tools, and getting cyber insurance.

Detect

Implement a layered threat detection system consisting of

  • Automated detection toolset, using behavior analytics to learn how your business operates so that it can recognize and flag unusual activities; Managed Detection & Response (MDR)
  • Sensors placed on key components of your IT infrastructure, providing visibility across your environment; Security Incident & Event Management (SIEM)
  • A 24/7 team of security specialists (Security Operations Center) monitoring and analyzing the security data stream, ready to respond to potential threats

Respond

Employ a three-tier threat response process:

  • Your Security Operations Center (SOC) team will have first eyes on potential threats. They will validate the threat and, in most cases, can resolve it through the restoration capabilities of your MDR tool.
  • Threats that cannot be resolved through restoration are escalated to the Aldridge Network Operations Center (NOC). They will independently vet the threat, uncover the scope of the breach, and determine the appropriate recovery steps.
  • Your Client Success Manager (CSM) will incorporate findings from Security+ – whether detected vulnerabilities identified separately or specific findings from a security event – into your IT Projects Roadmap for consideration, prioritization, and implementation

Recover

If the damage to your environment goes beyond restoration, then our remediation service Cyber Attack Recovery kicks in. Remediation involves restoring, repairing, and immediate changes to harden your systems in response to an attack. Remediation is rarely included within the scope of a security offering because the nature of the damage is unpredictable, and there is a potential for extremely high repair costs. Remediation is included in Security+ because we are confident in the solutions you have in place.

Security+ includes

Security Incident & Event Monitoring (SIEM)

Expand your Security Team’s visibility by installing sensors on key elements of your IT environment. Enables comprehensive threat investigations by consolidating and retaining your security logs.

Security Operations Center (SOC)
