Customised simulations for better adversary insight
Have your system controls been tested? Do you know if they are ready to respond effectively to today’s attack patterns? Kroll’s proprietary FAST Attack Simulations combine unrivalled incident forensics experience with leading security frameworks to bring customised breach simulations to your environment.
With deep knowledge of the industry, market and geographical factors which influence the threat landscape, we craft a series of highly trackable and repeatable breach simulations to prepare your systems and teams for likely threats. Combined with any specific requirements your organisation may have, we will layer industry standards and years of experience to help test your ability to detect and respond to indicators throughout the kill chain. We will then support your organisation in identifying and prioritising next steps for your security team.
- What is a breach and attack simulation?
A breach and attack simulation is a type of advanced computer security testing method. It aims to identify different vulnerabilities in security environments by simulating the attack paths and techniques likely to be used by malicious actors. A breach simulation allows organisations to evaluate their security controls and their ability to detect and mitigate against cyber threats.
- How can a breach and attack simulation enhance my organisation’s security status?
Regular breach and attack simulations provide vital insights to help your organisation measure, manage and improve the ability of its systems and defend effectively against cyber-attacks. They can also enable your organisation to identify potential vulnerabilities or other issues problems early on. Breach simulations are especially valuable in the face of increasingly complex enterprise networks and the shift towards cloud computing, IoT and remote working.
- When should organisations undertake breach simulations?
This will depend on your specific requirements, but it is recommended that breach simulations should be undertaken when an organisation wants to ensure that its security controls and tools are performing effectively. As a general rule, it can be beneficial to run and review simulations on an annual basis. They should also be undertaken when an organisation makes a significant change to their network or security strategy.
- What should I do after a breach and attack simulation?
Once designed, simulated attacks should be used to regularly test and retest configuration changes, benchmark response preparedness and gauge adherence to internal security standards. Supported by our proprietary FAST simulation platform, we will guide your organisation through conclusions to help identify and prioritise next steps for your security team.
- Which areas of cyber security does a breach simulation cover?
The wide breadth of security issues covered by breach and attack simulations includes data exfiltration, phishing attacks, malware attacks, attacks that move laterally within networks and malware attacks on endpoints. We ensure that your breach simulation is designed to align with your organisation’s specific needs and priorities.
- What’s the difference between a breach and attack simulation and a penetration test?
While a penetration test is a one-off, human-led exercise, automated breach and attack simulations enable the continual testing of security defences. Penetration testing provides a valuable insight into a company’s security status at one specific point in time while breach simulations are undertaken on an ongoing basis, to gauge changes over time.
