As business operations become more entwined with data and technology, businesses are becoming more dependent on their IT operations. To address the evolving business landscape, many organizations are realizing that not only do they need a more robust group of technical service providers – they also need someone who can help manage and streamline the selection and implementation process.
MOXFIVE can help. Our teams are on the front lines helping companies restore IT operations following ransomware attacks and other major incidents every day. This experience gives us the unique ability to connect the dots between business, information technology, and security objectives and helps us understand how to quickly identify gaps and build a more resilient business environment.
Security should start with the basics. We encourage organizations to start with these solutions to build the proper security foundation.

In Part Two of our blog with CrowdStrike, we share proven strategies and techniques for effective large-scale remediation efforts.
When an incident progresses to the point where enterprise remediation is required, the scope and scale of the response can be daunting. In this two-part series with CrowdStrike, we lay out a roadmap from planning to recovery.
Can new AI models such as ChatGPT be used to help cybersecurity teams? Yes! Here are three quick use cases.
In this blog, we look at 8 examples of best practices that can be implemented to provide for a more resilient architecture.
Our inaugural edition provides context around themes that impacted cybersecurity risk during the first half of 2022. Derived from providing forensics, recovery and resilience services through our platform, our goal is to provide a deeper understanding of the current cyber threat landscape and help organizations make better, more informed decisions.
When responding to a ransomware incident, making the right decisions is critical and can make the difference between an easier path or a harder one. In this blog, we tell the tales of two clients and lessons learned so you can avoid the hard path.
Picking a forensics provider is one of the first critical decisions you have to make when faced with a cyber incident. In this blog, we cover the capabilities to consider when evaluating a potential provider.
Security, like chess, relies on having a variety of strategies and tactics to use for countering your opponent. This blog offers a variety of options to consider when devising your own plans to outwit your adversaries.
Business Email Compromises (BECs) continue to be the one of the top attack vectors, costing organizations over $2.3 billion in 2021. In this blog, we share priorities and key methodologies for investigating these attacks.
Host-based microsegmentation offers a wide range of advantages over legacy counterparts allowing organizations to apply segmentation at much deeper granularity including host, user, or application levels.
Logs are critical sources for forensics investigations. This blog looks at various log sources and the key takeaways to consider when building the retention strategy that's best for your organization.
Our MOXFIVE Incident Managers are critical to every project we manage at MOXFIVE. Learn more about their role and how they enable everyone in the process to focus on what they do best.
Gaining access to Active Directory is often a goal of threat actors during an intrusion. In this blog, we look at two key workstreams that add security layers making 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.
