    information security assets When implementing an ISMS set clear objectives as this in turn will drive how you measure the success of the system You will not know how good or how bad your ISMS is without a benefit realisation plan Objectives to measure can include Management Support Visible support from management is key to ensuring the success of an ISMS management must be committed to ensure mutual buy in If management do not recognise the benefits or support the ISMS then the value is reduced Culture In order for ISO27001 to be successful it must work within the culture of the company An organisation can still meet requirements in line with how you work rather than changing the culture In essence ISO27001 must be integrated not imposed and The Right Reason ISO27001 accreditation in itself can have benefits in attracting new customers for example However it is important to obtain accreditation for the right reasons do not just get the stamp but realise the benefits for the business When reviewing the ISMS ask these questions How do you know your security programme is working What were your objectives Does the solution you have chosen fit the business It is important to note than ISO27001 does not fix a poor ISMS rather it provides the options to facilitate a good ISMS There are 2 audit stages in achieving certification Part 1 is a review of the ISMS including checking the existence and completeness of key documentation such as the organisations information security policy Part 2 focuses on the Statement of Applicability and Risk treatment plans that have been identified Whilst these parts can be combined into a single audit most companies find that having separate audits enables reassurance after part 1 For more information in how ISO27001 can work for

    will install or modify key files on the computer and change start up parameters to ensure the malware is running all the time Establish a foothold Once the malware is installed on an insider computer it will attempt to create a covert internet connection to a computer controlled by the attackers to create a backdoor into the target s computer The communication methods used by the backdoors vary from clear text or simple encoding to the use of more advanced encoding or encryption These backdoors will give the APT groups basic access to a system typically through a command shell or graphical user interface Escalate privileges The attackers will use backdoors to try to gain access to more resources within the victim environment Attackers prefer to use privileged accounts such as local administrators domain administrators and privileged service accounts They will attempt to gain access and compromise these through the use of cracking tools to reverse engineer passwords A number of publically available tools can be used for this purpose Internal reconnaissance Using the privileged accounts the attacker can now collect information about the victim environment For example the attacker can use built in Windows utilities to obtain information about the internal network computers on the internal network domain trust relationships as well as information about domain users and groups The attacker can also start identifying data of interest by searching by file extension key word or last modified date Data of interest may take many forms but most commonly consists of documents the contents of user email accounts or databases Therefore file servers email servers and domain controllers are customary targets of internal reconnaissance Some APT groups use custom scripts to automate the process of reconnaissance and identification of data of interest Move laterally In most cases the systems that the attacker initially compromised do not contain the data that they want Attackers will use compromised accounts to access to additional computers and devices in the network execute commands remotely and install malware on these systems Maintain a presence Attackers then focus on fortifying their position by ensuring continued control over key systems from outside of the victim network They may use different families of malware on multiple computers and use a variety of external command and control server addresses to evade capture or to maintain a presence if some of the malware is discovered and removed Complete the mission The main goal of APT intrusion is to steal data Once APT groups find files of interest on compromised systems they often pack them into archive files before stealing them They most commonly use the RAR archiving utility for this task but may also use other publicly available utilities such as ZIP or 7 ZIP APT threat actors not only compress data but frequently password protect the archive From there they use a variety of methods to transfer files out of the victim network including FTP custom file transfer tools or existing backdoors APT Countermeasures The old adage prevention
