Key Challenges Addressed
With modern organizations evolving rapidly, it is common for their cyber security policies, processes and playbooks to become out of date.
Interconnecting IT and OT estates, introducing IoT or IIoT, migrating to the cloud, and automating processes are common practices to modernize operations, yet these changes aren’t always underpinned by an understanding of how they impact incident response. As a result, organizations can move away from best practice over time and limit their ability to respond in the event of a cyber security incident.
Similarly, digital forensic analysis becomes more complex as more systems are added to an organization's environments, or as more environments are introduced. Investigative teams may lack the right experience and/ or tools to keep pace with the latest technologies deployed in their network, which makes it harder to uncover the types of digital evidence they need.

Here are some commonly asked questions about Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR). If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team.
The goal of digital forensics is to collect and preserve evidence from a digital device in a forensically sound manner, to identify and document the activities that occurred on the device, and to provide a report of findings to law enforcement, a prosecutor, or a court. Forensic science follows a rigorous process of identification, collection, examination, and analysis of data in order to accurately reconstruct past events or activities.
1. Identify the goals of the investigation and collect evidence accordingly.
2. Examine the evidence to look for clues that can help identify the source of the problem or incident.
3. Analyze the evidence to determine what happened and why.
4. Generate a report of the findings and recommendations for future prevention.
