BREACH AND ATTACK SIMULATION

Organisations collectively spent more than $90 billion* on cybersecurity solutions in 2017. Despite this, hackers continue to gain the upper hand.

Often due to the extraordinarily complex nature of Cyber Solutions, organisations are unable to determine if these solutions are deployed correctly and if they are working as planned, defending the organisation, against the ever-changing threat landscape.

In addition, prioritising security investment is a challenge that many organisations have as vulnerability assessment programs and penetration testing fails to connect risks with business metrics.

Determining an empirical baseline and then demonstrating empirically that the solutions deployed have led to an improvement in resilience along with providing evidence for informed decision making and facilitating risk management is something that organisations currently lack.

THE ISSUE

THE SOLUTION

A well-defined Breach and Attack Simulation programme enables organisations to assess the effectiveness of security procedures, solution configuration, coverage, effectiveness, blind spots and vulnerabilities.

These simulations are de-weaponised, multi-vector, internal or external attacks which enable an organisation to determine if its security architecture provides the right protection and if its configurations are properly implemented.

 

It is also possible to assign an empirical value to these simulations which act as a measure of overall Cyber Resilience and can be used to measure progress over time or benchmark against similar organisations.

With the information from Breach and Attack Simulations organisation can plan and budget for additional solutions that improve their Cybersecurity posture while making those that are not contributing to risk mitigation redundant.
 

Addressed threats at a glance: 

  • Phishing, Ransomware, Malware via Email and Web Gateway

  • Network lateral movement and privilege escalation

  • Cloud WAF

  • End-Point Detection and Response including Immediate Threat
     

BENEFITS OF OUR APPROACH

  • Minimize security exposure due to human error, updates, and policy changes

  • Provide business rationalisation for security investment, prove security against headline attacks

  • Get more from existing controls by optimizing configuration and ensuring controls work in concert

  • Prepare for audits by validating segmentation and other compliance controls

  • Test alerting and action plans for SIEM, SOC or MSSP teams, and provide breach scenario training

  • Validate third-party security risk before mergers or acquisitions

  • New CISO's obtain a detailed view of your entire infrastructure including blind spots and gaps

HOW WE CAN HELP

Elasticito provides class leading Breach and Attack Simulation solutions backed by a robust Professional Service advisory, project management and implementation programme.

The objective of this solution is to enable organisation to improve their current security posture with their existing solutions that they have invested in which may not be optimised to deliver maximum resilience.
