DFIR includes various techniques and tools such as forensic imaging, malware analysis, network analysis, and log analysis. DFIR aims to minimize the damage caused by cyber incidents and prevent them from recurring.
Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) investigate and responds to cyber incidents such as data breaches, network intrusions, and malware attacks. It involves collecting and analyzing digital evidence to identify the scope of the incident, contain it, and recover from it. DFIR includes various techniques and tools such as forensic imaging, malware analysis, network analysis, and log analysis. DFIR aims to minimize the damage caused by cyber incidents and prevent them from recurring.
Digital Forensic and Incident Response (DFIR) services protect against the harmful impact of cyber incidents in the following ways. If your organization does not have any of the following capabilities, your organization is DFIR ready.
DFIR helps detect cyber incidents early, allowing organizations to respond quickly and prevent further damage. According to IBM’s 2021 Cost of a Data Breach Report, organizations that could detect and contain a data breach in less than 200 days saved an average of $1.2 million.
DFIR provides a comprehensive approach to managing cyber incidents, including investigation, containment, and recovery. A study by the Ponemon Institute found that organizations with a well-defined incident response plan had an average cost savings of $1.23 million per breach.
DFIR helps mitigate the damage caused by cyber incidents. For instance, ransomware attacks can result in data loss and business interruption. A report by Cybersecurity Ventures found that global ransomware damage costs are predicted to reach $20 billion by 2021, up from $11.5 billion in 2019. DFIR services can help prevent such incidents and mitigate the impact if they occur.
DFIR helps organizations identify vulnerabilities and prevent future incidents. For instance, a vulnerability assessment can help identify weaknesses in an organization’s network or system, which can be addressed before cybercriminals exploit them.
Analysis: This Analysis involves analyzing the collected evidence to identify the incident’s cause and extent and determine the best course of action.
