Gaining access to Active Directory is often a goal of threat actors during the lateral movement phase of the overall intrusion. In this blog, we look at two key workstreams we use to add security layers that make it more difficult for threat actors to achieve this goal.
The worst of the Log4j fire drill might be behind us (for now), but the opportunity for new exploits still remains. Learn how a Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) and other best practices can help reduce future impacts and improve your overall security posture.
In Part 2 of our Improving Cybersecurity Resilience blogs, we cover five additional capabilities that round out the list of security basics that we believe all organizations should implement.
Credentials being stolen, reused, or even guessed often leads to an intrusion, or turns what could have been a small incident into an enterprise-wide issue. Multifactor Authentication (MFA) is a critical layer of protection to help minimize this risk.
MOXFIVE recommends these six capabilities as a starting point for improving resilience due to their outsize contribution to reducing risk and mitigating damage.
Regulations abound and new ones are added all the time, but breaches still happen. Why? Because compliance frameworks are flawed and do not get into the technical weeds on effective implementation. There is an opportunity for the insurance industry to help drive things forward, especially for SMBs.
Enabling Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) can help greatly reduce the blast radius of a cyber-attack and is a quick and simple process for most environments.
Using cloud-based services can help not only lift the burden of day-to-day IT and security tasks, but they can also provide a significant benefit when dealing with a ransomware attack.
Finding the right balance between containment, recovery and forensics workstreams is the key to faster and more effective incident response.
The lines between forensics and recovery can easily blur during incident response. Using an approach that delivers both in parallel helps minimize business interruption and get organizations back online more quickly.
Building threat hunting skills within your team can help prevent burnout, up-level skills and give your team a broader understanding of your security environment.
Learn how MOXFIVE's platform-based approach to incident management drives increased efficacy and quicker resolution of complex challenges while also reducing costs and ultimately making life easier for all parties involved.
This year’s Colonial Pipeline breach turned a spotlight on the debate over whether or not cyber ransoms should be paid by victims of these attacks. This blog examines why we think payment bans are bad policy.
Open-source software is used in a wide variety of projects, including the recent Mars helicopter, Ingenuity! In this blog, we take a look at the open-source network security solution, pfSense, and the many ways it can be used.
To effectively respond to a cybersecurity incident, having complete visibility into all assets (endpoint devices, applications, user accounts) across your IT estate is a critical success factor for recovering quickly and minimizing business disruption.
In July 2019 we posted our inaugural blog and introduced our idea of how a Technical Advisor could help companies better manage the incident response process. Two years (and hundreds of incidents) later, we've learned many lessons that help our clients recover quickly and effectively.
Tabletops can help improve organizational awareness and streamline Incident Response efforts. Learn how they can help mature your security posture and develop your teams' skills.
Fusing the efforts of your red and blue teams by implementing a purple team approach enables analysts to cross-train, collaborate, and respond more effectively during an incident.
