Cyber Investigations

A cyber investigation capability is now an essential component of all organisations who store customer or other valuable data as part of their business. 

The risk of your network being compromised or ‘hacked’ by the presence of malware, or by individuals within or outside of your organisation, is growing, and the technical defence mechanisms relied upon over the last twenty years are no longer sufficient.  It is now widely accepted that Antivirus (AV) solutions only identify 48% of threats, so it is vital for today’s organisations to be able to respond appropriately when compromises are detected. Identifying, securing and analysing relevant information on live networks today, during or following a cyber related event, requires specialist skills and knowledge so as to ensure any data loss is permanently halted and the vulnerability fixed.  Isolating the offending piece of technology alone is seldom enough these days to remove the compromise.

Cyber investigations are complex and will include the examination of data from computers, servers, switches, routers and many other network devices.  7Safe has the experience and ability to isolate a “rogue” digital footprint whilst gathering evidence of the “cyber event”, all of which is essential to help identify the root cause and to be able to identify malicious intruders.

We provide a full range of Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) solutions from advice to data collection, bespoke investigations, remediation and evidential statements and expert services.

    Over one billion data records were lost or stolen in over 1,500 corporate breach incidents during 2014*; the equivalent of 32 records every single second. Retail and Financial sectors were unsurprisingly the primary contributors in terms of the number of records affected, although it is the Healthcare sector that accounted for over 25% of the breaches reported, with Government, Technology and Education not far behind.

    What’s in your inbox ?

    We all receive dozens, if not hundreds of emails every single day, but did you know that as many as one in 284* contain malware that could potentially leave you or your organisation open to a damaging breach or compromise. So, in a company of 1000 people, receiving a modest 10 external emails each per working day that’s over 8,000 attacks on your company throughout the year. And if you think your anti-virus software will take care of this, then consider that studies have shown that the initial detection rate for new viruses by AV can be as low as 5%**.
