Fargate breach preparedness
Fargate EKS & ECS
Cloud computing and Docker containerization have shifted much of the responsibility for application and server resource management to cloud providers, but not all. Enterprises must still possess the proper knowledge and coding skills to manage cloud workloads efficiently, but with AWS Fargate, IT managers have one less thing to worry about.
Amazon ECS and EKS can use containers provisioned by Fargate to automatically scale, load balance, and manage scheduling of containers for availability
Fargate is an evolution of Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS, a Docker container management service) that eases the burden of managing Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances. Announced in late 2017, the technology is essentially a Containerization as a Service (CaaS) solution that is starting to gain traction among developers, sysadmins and other AWS users.
Fargate breach preparedness
Since AWS Fargate is a managed service, hence getting the data you need to investigate a potential compromise becomes more complex.
While the visibility provided by built-in CSP tools such as AWS CloudWatch and CloudTrail is important, these data sources alone are not sufficient for a detailed investigation in container environments. In order to gain more visibility into ECS containers, third-party incident and threat intelligence capabilities prove vital to discover, monitor and secure container assets
NGT Security Team can help collecting the Right Data by using the right tools
When it comes to investigating potential threats in container environments, NGT’s experienced team knows how to collect the right data from containerized environment.
Useful data sources to include as part of a container investigation are:
System logs and files from within the container
Container running processes
Container active network connections
Container host system
Container runtime logs (if accessible)
Container host memory (if accessible)
AWS VPC flow logs for the VPC the container is attached to
Logs from container repositories
If data collection wasn’t baked into the container declaration before the need to investigate arose, you need to rely on data you can actively interrogate out of the container.
Please get in touch with NGT Team for further details and any questions about the subject.
Besides breach preparedness, incidence response is another vital part of the security operations. In order to response in timely and due manners a security team needs well thought processes & procedures in place. NTG team can help in developing and implementing industry best practices to secure your environment at the best.
A complete guide from identifying compromised information to resolution steps
Our security team will assess your IT infrastructure and detect if any security breach or attempt was made with or without your knowledge. It includes calculating and analyzing the level of damage done to your systems and if any information was leaked. Our experts highlight the indicators of compromise to prevent any future cyber intrusion to your systems.
Process we follow
Identifying Indicators of Compromise (IoCs)
The first step of ensuring your cybersecurity is a comprehensive identification of Indicators of compromise. For which our experts will deeply analyze all the tools, including SIEM, Intrusion detection, and intrusion prevention tools, etc. We also use various other tools to leave no loophole in the system.
Identifying compromised assets
Our IoC analysis is led by a report identifying the assets which were effected or compromised during the security breach.
Analyzing the nature and impact of an attack
A detailed analysis of the nature of the attack on your infrastructure and its impact on your information and systems helps our expert identify the attack's purpose. This also highlights the system’s vulnerabilities and loopholes. It helps identify which essential or sensitive data was lost during the breach will allow your organization to take relative preventive measures.
All the processes are concluded in the final report, including preventive measures and security protocols to follow in the future. From problem identification to resolution, our experts will work with your team to ensure your digital infrastructure's security.
Preparing the final report
Finally, our security team prepares a comprehensive report detailing the:
Nature of the compromise
The systems and data affected by the breach
Its possible repercussions
The immediate action necessary for damage control
The remediation steps to plug the security holes that allowed the attack
Recommendations for preventing malicious activity in the future.
DIGITAL FORENSICS & INCIDENT
Instant Handling Of Cyber Forensic Matters, From Identification & Performing Safety Measures
What is Digital Forensic?
Like any other criminal activity, digital crimes also leave footprints and evidence. Whenever a fraudulent activity is done, it uses various systems and digital actions such as emails, transactions, document extractions, etc. These activities help cybercrime experts to identify malicious activities and personals behind them. It also allows your infrastructure to take preventive measures against these activities.
Types of Digital Evidence
Instant Message Files
Documents Extracted from Hard Drives
Electronic Financial Transactions
Audio & Video Files
NGT uses its vast experience of working with security sensitive infrastructures will help your organization through following process
Cyber Incident Response
At NGT, our seasoned cybersecurity experts provide a proper security plan for your organization. A cyber-attacks can always happen, which makes it very important to stay ready and proactive. In the case of a cyber-attack, our team confirms and ensures that it is confused with a malfunctioning or error. Upon confirmation of the attack, our team promptly respond and identify the specific areas of target and secure the facility. Securing the systems and infrastructure is led by a forensic analysis to collect evidence about any possible internal or external involvement. Our experts gather complete forensics to work further.
Preparation for Handling Incidents
Handling incidents require a team that consists of forensic experts, digital security experts, and managers from the organization who predict and plan an action plan in response to any cyber-incidence. Our team will help your organization with this process.
Identification and reporting
Any incidence must be identified for specific areas of target and data breaches and reported to the concerned team.
This helps to mitigate any future attacks and securing the areas of vulnerabilities. Our team provides a comprehensive plan for ensuring secure infrastructure.
