Data Breach Threat Analysis

Malicious activity detection through network threat assessment


How do you Know you Haven’t Been Breached?

Data breaches are more stealthy and malicious than ever before. Many threats are programmed to remain unnoticed for as long as possible, until unleashed at an opportune time chosen to inflict maximum damage.

Although signs of the intrusion likely existed before detection, many of today’s sophisticated data breaches go undiscovered for months. In fact, research shows one in 10 breaches discovered in 2016 went undetected for more than a year. Can you guess what the hackers are doing during this time? That’s right, stealing your data.

The number one network vulnerability in most organizations is unpatched systems. Traditional anti-virus/anti-malware vendors simply can’t keep up with the speed at which online criminals can produce threats.

Detection is the Key

Sword & Shield Enterprise Security’s Data Breach Threat Analysis (DBTA) looks for and identifies previously undiscovered nefarious activity such as malware, dormant ransomware, and data exfiltration of sensitive information.

Sword & Shield partners with you through our DBTA service to identify the nature of the attacks, and determine if there is evidence of an active threat.

Data Breach Threat Analysis Approach

The Data Breach Threat Analysis is the result of data collected over a span of time, coupled with Sword & Shield’s extensive incident response experience. The DBTA does the following:
