The Sixth Step to Forensic Readiness: System Monitoring

Featured Image

Being agile in dealing with, and handling, digital evidence is of great use when an incident happens. However, applying system monitoring in your organizational network to achieve forensic readiness shows that an organization has the initiative and ability to manage risks effectively in real-time. 

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)

With increasing malicious activities, businesses need to protect their network by implementing high levels of security to ensure safe and trusted internal and external communication flow and information exchange. IDS monitors a network for malicious activity or policy violations. Any malicious activity or violation is typically reported or collected centrally using a SIEM system. 

Due to the evolving sophistication of cyber attacks, it is more important than ever to build protective walls and an IDS acts as an adaptable safeguard technology for system security after traditional technologies fail. It provides real-time monitoring of a certain set of incidents, which are often linked to a real-time response from the organization.

What is a real-time response from an organization?

As mentioned above any malicious activity or violation, detected by an IDS, is typically reported or collected centrally using a SIEM system. To ensure complete forensic readiness it is necessary at this stage to implement effective automated incident response solutions, so you can stay in control 24/7. The point is to set up the system and playbooks, create the right alerts, deploy a fast and powerful IR solution to your endpoints, and you have it all.
