What is DFIR?

Digital forensics is a department for computer forensics that is concerned with examining the digital components of an individual or company, to determine whether or not the owner or a vicious cyber attack has taken illegal action.

Data forensics is the skill set used by IT experts to test hard drives and computer devices. However, in the modern business world, it is important to broaden the consideration of threats to other digital resources such as networks, memory, digital objects and more. In this way, digital forensics helps IT professionals detect incidents of cybercrime, such as ransomware and hacking.

Incident response refers to an additional collection of processes that arise after an incident has been detected. In the event of an incident, it is critical that the correspondence is transparent and available, that all parties concerned are alerted to the organization by the incident response manager and, furthermore, that measures are identified to address the problem.

IT specialists can be charged with malware detection during digital forensics and incident response. Malware can be redesigned by tech professionals to learn more about how it works, how it was created and who made it.

What are the Common Capabilities?

Digital forensic technology solutions help clients support DFIR operations. Here are some of the capabilities you can expect from a DFIR software solution:

Data acquisition that spans a number of sources, multiple devices and systems System transparency that offers clear visibility into actions and administrative processes Investigation capabilities that are comprehensive and compliant Reporting including features like robust visualization.
Automating iterative processes that help incident managers find all instances of artifacts, faster, with less guesswork

Steps of Incident Response

Six Steps of Incident Response
Companies large and small can benefit from a smooth DFIR process. For companies who must assess risk and mitigate threats, it’s important to understand the steps associated with incident response. The six common steps are:

1. Preparing: Companies can be prepared to handle incident response with policies in place, incident managers defined and platform software identified.
2. Identifying: During the identification phase, IT professionals detect the incident, the kind of attack that’s occurred, the risk involved and more.
3. Containing: Next, incident managers work to quickly contain the threat so that it doesn’t continue to spread through adjacent systems.
4. Remediating: A plan is established to correct the issue. Forensic analysis is applied to artifacts to determine the best way to resolve.
5. Incident recovery: Following established policies, the company begins to resume regular operations. During this phase, monitoring and reporting on the incident is continuous and ongoing.
6. Reporting and communication: The incident manager must communicate with stakeholders, end-users and the public to report on progress of the incident while providing transparency.

Digital Forensics

Digital forensics, serves both law enforcement and enterprise businesses looking to investigate attacks on their digital properties. In law enforcement, digital forensics specialists are increasingly becoming in higher demand as cybercrime rises. In corporate security, businesses rely on these professionals to ensure their business and customer data remains secure and useable.

Securing Endpoints

A comprehensive DFIR system helps enterprise businesses secure these vulnerable areas of their multi-platform systems. This is especially important for large corporations because their vulnerability and risk increases exponentially when a high-volume of data must be sifted through to reach the most important alerts.
