Threat Hunting & Compromise Assessments

Threat Hunting & Compromise Assessments

The average dwell time, where a threat actor remains undetected in an organisation’s IT environment, currently stands at around 180 days. The longer the dwell time, the more difficult and higher the cost of the response will be.

Threat Hunting is an intelligence-led, expert driven, proactive investigation that looks for evidence that a cyber-attack may have occurred within your organisation, whether successful or not. 

Sophisticated threat actors are always advancing their techniques to evade the latest detections tools and controls. This is where our intelligence-led, proactive threat hunting service comes into play. Our aim is to outsmart the attackers, using our extensive experience and investigative techniques to look for signs of a compromise. We think of it as being cyber security’s version of a hand-to-hand combat.

How we can help

Our experienced investigative consultants and response analysts act as the intelligent hunter that will look for threats and evidence of a compromise and then investigate anything that is of concern. This includes investigating sources both inside and outside your network perimeter, and across the entire cyber kill chain.

We can tailor our threat management services to something that is appropriate for your organisation, whether that is a one-off Compromise Assessment or ongoing proactive threat hunting, in-house staff training and staff augmentation, or providing strategic advice.

Why Context?

At Context we understand the attacker’s mindset from being a leading provider of cyber security simulation exercises (such as CBEST engagements, red teams and penetration testing) where our goal is to mimic the sophisticated tactics and tools used by attackers in order to help clients keep their systems secure. 

We have a team of highly skilled, NCSC certified incident responders with experience investigating Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), elusive state-sponsored and sophisticated criminal attacks.
