These interim services involve taking IT security to a higher level as required within legal or regulatory compliance policy, (often as a response to some serious or high impact incident) that defines a more cogent and compelling security stance against highly capable, motivated, well-resourced and determined attackers.
The services include the preparation of some combination of a series of advanced facilities (currently 22 modules in play).
CDD's bespoke services are geared to organisations that have access to a higher degree of knowledge of their own environment, appropriate skills and capabilities, and are responding to a threat presence that demands engineering commensurate with a level of risk arising from highly proficient cyberattackers targeting high value, mission critical IT assets which may imply serious organisational consequences if they achieve successful compromise.
In response to high-impact cyberattack upon mission critical assets, it is necessary to consider and understand how such highly capable attackers behave.
CDD can prepare best mechanisms (involving tools and processes that may already be available in their IT arena) for organisations to achieve such understanding, which will be essential for mitigation of risk arising from such individuals or groups.
High-impact cyberattack frequently involves the combination of a number of simple but carefully orchestrated facets that constitute complicated attack behaviour. Unless the requisite depth of cybersecurity situational awareness is achieved, and the precise nature of vulnerabilities properly understood, such attacks may go unnoticed (and for extended periods of time), and with very great impact and consequences. This is referred to as OPTIMIZED attack.
CDD can apply its systems to discern the many routes of combinatorial cyberattack and propose appropriate mitigation and response.
Many organisations are well equipped in terms of both toolsets and skillsets. However, too much data or 'information overflow' can be a serious impediment to effective response and rapid resolution of serious cyberattack. It is critical to rapidly understand the precise nature of such attack, but without cluttering complex decision making processes that are critical to effecting success response.
CDD is able to advise on methods to integrate processes and toolsets to better utilise security enforcing functionality and provide decision makers and technicians with only the necessary information they can properly use. This is an essential first step in turning the risk of cyberattack back on the threat-actors.
