You have just been hired as a Triage Specialist at an MSSP, and you are undergoing orientation with the CISO. She impresses upon you that all the work you perform on your own or on behalf of another SOC analyst must adhere to multiple compliance and security standards so they are admitted as evidence in a court of law. The CISO provides you with a booklet documenting these standards and procedures. What aspect of cybersecurity is the CISO addressing with you?
- Malware mitigation: Proactively detecting malware that could be released on the network.
- Vulnerability testing: Proactively seeking security weaknesses in corporate applications.
- Forensics: Following established procedures to support legal proceedings in post-incident response.
- Penetration testing: Proactively seeking security weaknesses by attacking the production system.
|Explanation & Hint:
The CISO is addressing the aspect of forensics with you. Specifically, she is emphasizing the importance of following established procedures to support legal proceedings in post-incident response. This involves collecting and preserving digital evidence in a way that is compliant with legal and regulatory standards, ensuring that the evidence can be admitted in a court of law if necessary. Cybersecurity forensics is a critical aspect of incident response and investigation, helping to determine the who, what, when, where, and how of security incidents and breaches for potential legal action.
