Azure and Office 365 Incident Response Services

Azure Incident Response Services

As cloud computing continues to dominate the enterprise landscape, securing platforms like Microsoft Azure—now known as EntraID—has become more critical than ever. At Cyber Centaurs, we offer specialized Azure Incident Response Services designed to swiftly and effectively address and mitigate security incidents. Our approach includes a robust threat detection strategy that employs advanced monitoring techniques to quickly identify anomalies and potential threats within your Azure infrastructure.

Our expert team at Cyber Centaurs conducts comprehensive and detailed investigations to determine both the scope and impact of each security incident within Azure environments. Upon identification of a threat, our team acts swiftly, deploying containment strategies to halt the spread and subsequent damage of the intrusion. This immediate and decisive action is critical in minimizing the effects of the breach.

Once containment is achieved, our focus shifts to eradication of the threat from the system, ensuring that all aspects of the breach are thoroughly addressed. Parallel to this effort, we initiate recovery operations aimed at restoring affected services to full functionality as quickly as possible. Our recovery process not only aims to bring operations back to normal but also to strengthen the existing security measures. This dual approach helps prevent the recurrence of similar incidents, bolstering overall resilience against future threats.

A key component of our investigative and recovery process involves leveraging Microsoft’s Unified Audit Log. This powerful tool provides us with granular insights into user activities across critical Azure services such as Azure Active Directory and Kubernetes. By analyzing this data, we can accurately trace the origin, path, and extent of breaches. This level of detail is vital for understanding the nature of security breaches and crafting more effective mitigation strategies.

In addition to the Unified Audit Log, Cyber Centaurs utilizes Microsoft’s extensive APIs, which allow for a more rapid and detailed investigation of data breaches within the Azure Cloud infrastructure. These APIs enable our team to access a broader range of data points and system interactions than typical forensic tools provide. This capability significantly enhances our speed and accuracy in diagnosing the root causes of incidents and implementing tailored security upgrades to fortify the infrastructure against future attacks.

    Office 365 Business Email Compromise

    Business Email Compromise (BEC) poses a significant risk to organizations utilizing Office 365 for their communication needs. These sophisticated email-based attacks often involve deceitful tactics aimed at manipulating employees into transferring funds or confidential information to attackers masquerading as trustworthy entities. At Cyber Centaurs, our incident response strategies are specifically crafted to meet the unique challenges of BEC, ensuring the security and integrity of your email communications.

    Upon detecting a BEC incident, our immediate action involves a detailed investigation to determine the nature and scope of the breach. This phase starts with identifying the initial breach points and the accounts impacted. We swiftly move to map the attack’s trajectory within the network, using advanced digital forensics tools to trace the origins and pathways of the attack. This includes analyzing email headers, cross-referencing log data, and scrutinizing any links or attachments included in suspicious emails.

    Our mitigation efforts are geared towards containing the breach and preventing further damage. We implement strict access controls to lock down affected accounts, review and adjust permissions to minimize potential impacts, and seal off exploited vulnerabilities. This rapid containment is crucial to halt the progression of the attack and prevent additional data loss or financial impact.
