MEDINA, OH – October is National CyberSecurity Awareness Month and Vestige Digital Investigations, is pleased to announce a new addition to their CyberSecurity service line called HUNT TEAM.
With high profile data breaches in the daily news, the IT department has moved from the ‘costly overhead’ department to the ‘critical component’ and key player in safeguarding everything from intellectual property to an organization’s personal information.
“Protecting an organization from today’s sophisticated and advanced cyber attackers who are seeking to profit or cause harm to your corporate mission isn’t a one-time, one-stop solution,” said Damon Hacker, Vestige President & CEO “Cyber attackers are opportunists. True protection requires constant vigilance. Every day, cyber criminals watch for opportunities to: breach your perimeter, steal employee credentials and inject malicious code into legitimate processes to bypass anti-virus protection. Most skilled digital hackers are in company’s system 9 to 12 months before they are even discovered. The moment the opportunity becomes available, your most sensitive data can be compromised in seconds.”
That’s why today’s cutting edge organizations are requesting and fully committing to full computer security. Rather than waiting to be a victim, they are choosing a proactive, comprehensive, long-term approach with a Hunt Team.
Vestige’s Hunt Team continuously searches through a contracted organization’s network looking for active indicators, markers and red flags that attackers leave behind as they are performing reconnaissance, privilege escalation, persistence and the myriad steps taken to “owning” an organization’s security data.
“Our experience in preventing and solving data breach issues runs deep. We’re certified and highly respected and skilled in CyberSecurity, Digital Forensics and the legal issues related to both. We serve as an extension of an IT department,” said Greg Kelley, CTO at Vestige. Vestige’s Hunt Team of Cyber Investigators enhances an organization’s capabilities by supplementing the overall proactive defense from persistent attackers. Certified professionals work together to detect, identify and understand in order to completely thwart or greatly mitigate advanced cyberattacks.
