  • CS Risk Management - Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)
    by the target If the recipient s computer is vulnerable to the exploit code the malware 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

  • CS Risk Management - BYOD Awareness
    followed by the editing and storing of work documents Allowing employees to access sensitive information outside of a controlled environment brings risks such as increased vulnerability to malware and hackers particularly via free wi fi and public cloud based sharing or back up services Various security controls should be introduced the cost of which could be more than the savings that may initially be expected from BYOD but compare this to the potential consequences of a data breach eg damage to reputation associated fines and the savings could be outweighed Introducing BYOD to improve efficiency requires additional or existing security controls to be re evaluated to ensure that the risk of a data breach is acceptable Examples of suitable guidelines include Guidelines for BYOD Policy Explain the risks associated with accessing corporate data on personal devices Use a strong password to secure the device ensuring that the device is locked or data automatically deleted if an incorrect password is entered several times Enable encryption to store data securely Introduce an Acceptable Use Policy and specify the types of personal data which may and may not be processed on personal devices Ensure the device is updated with the latest operating system and Review regularly to ensure that the device is secure and that the user understands the risks For a BYOD scheme to be successful it is vital that the risks are minimised by ensuring that guidance is provided on the safe use of personal devices with clear policies in place and training undertaken as required Of course the risk of data loss is only one element of this hot topic For further details on some of the other considerations that should be taken when deciding if BYOD is the appropriate solution for your organisation read our BYOD article here Contact

  • CS Risk Management - Bring Your Own Devise
    should be given as to who the right person to make the decision is as potentially this would impact all areas of the business The other area that should be contemplated is cost as this may be more complex than initially thought If the devices are owned by the employees this will save the company money but the data that resides on those devices must be secured There are potentially two options for this The first is that access can be granted to a virtual session and applications can be used as part of the session as well as data stored on central drives In addition this will allow for virus protection to be located on the central systems with no requirement for the end device to have virus protection The second option is to secure the device this would initially require the permission of the employee and then would mean considerations such as drive encryption virus protection and access controls It would also have to be agreed who purchased and owned the software for the device as it would be required for company use but would also benefit the employee Another area for consideration would be around loss of productivity due to device failure With a standardised IT environment if a fault occurs with a device spares can be held and the device replaced If an employee owned device failed then the onus would be on the employee to fix or replace the device using the standard consumer returns or replacement process which could take some time The other option for companies looking at bring your own device is to consider the cost of buying the equipment required for example if an employee is using their own phone to pick up their email there may be a legitimate business
