For years organisations have talked about the ‘new way of working’.

But few could predict how quickly the remote working revolution would take place, bringing with it security implications. SCC has seen a significant increase in attempted resource theft, such as malware and ransomware, in UK markets since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To keep up to date with the security landscape and be a trusted advisor, we conducted a piece of research where we surveyed 550 IT decision-makers from 11 different sectors about the impact of COVID-19 on IT security. These IT decision makers expect the business effects of COVID-19 be felt for years to come, where there has been a shift in perception of the biggest security threats they are now most concerned about, with ransomware (up 32% post COVID), resource theft (up 52% post COVID) and dependency on cloud services (up 24% post COVID) expected to be larger IT security threats in five years’ time.

As cyber criminals look to capitalise on the rapid pace at which businesses had to adapt to a fast-evolving landscape brought about by the pandemic it is important that organisations understand their current landscape.

The challenges

Ensure that the organisation’s incident response protocols reflect the altered operating conditions and are tested early.

Ensure that all remote access capabilities are tested and secure and endpoints used by workers are patched.

Reinforce the need for remote workers to remain vigilant to socially engineered attacks.

Ensure security monitoring capabilities are tuned to have visibility of the expanded operating environment.

Engage with security services vendors to evaluate impacts to the security supply chain.

Account for cyber physical systems security challenges.

Don’t forget employee information and privacy.

Our solutions

Organisations often do not have enough visibility or resource to detect a breach or malicious activity that is part of an attack. We can help provide real-time visibility across an organisations infrastructure and network that utilises machine learning to look for any patterns that identify a breach.

As a result of the exponential increase in phishing attacks SCC’s Managed SIEM service not only monitors and detects external threats but also utilises user behaviour analytics to identify breaches originating from within the organisation as a result of either malicious or non-malicious intent from an employee. This helps organisations reduce time to detection as well as identifying risky users whilst filtering out the noise thus allowing them to prioritise security risks.

In the event of a security breach occurring, the SCC Incident Management Team, alongside our SOC Analysts, can assist in providing an incident response and remediation plan.

We can look at and investigate the attack chain – where, when and how it happened – and then identify areas of improvement so the attack doesn’t happen again.

Having a team of consultants who can support organisations after a breach, we can provide an incident response team and virtual CISO to help organisations manage, reduce and rectify the impact.

We offer the following services:

  • Continuous Service Improvement
  • Security Hardening
