Time to Closure
Getting to closure fast matters to everyone.
If you have an intellectual property, data, or a brand reputation worth protecting, there is almost certainly an attacker out there looking to take advantage.
To combat advanced persistent threats, you don't rely on tools and feeds. You understand who is targeting you and why they're targeting you, and what their motivations are. This unique approach has allowed Nisos to develop close working relationships with many of the best-known names in the Fortune 500.
Nisos recognizes that to protect your business and defend your brand value, you need more than commoditized reports or a fire hose of possible indicators of compromise. Nisos was created with a mandate to be a different kind of security company. Nisos brings an adversarial mindset to the approach, one that combines unique investigative techniques and the ability to not only stop attacks, but to dig deep into the motivations, methods, and true identities of the attackers.
Getting to closure fast matters to everyone.
What happened and who was responsible
In-depth understanding of events and evidence
Most threats your organization encounters live outside of your network and it is essential to look beyond your environment to understand and mitigate them.
Nisos peels back the layers of complexity and provides timely, actionable and relevant assessments of the threats you face. We excel at detecting and identifying complex and advanced threats wherever they live.
Our experience with threat actors is unrivaled in the industry; our investigators have seen the unique and clever as well as the now fairly standard (but still damaging) campaigns you might expect.
We've seen marketplaces abused by foreign countries. We've seen and attributed the coordinated spread of disinformation to attack a major brands and their C-suite. We've seen pump and dump schemes that have knocked billions of dollars off of their market cap.
Nisos approaches forensic investigations differently - our analytics team works closely with investigators to deeply enrich forensic data and telemetry capable of yielding comprehensive resolutions for our clients.
Nisos leverages access to a multitude of closed sources – discreet data providers, dark web access, and well-placed partners – to gain a comprehensive understanding of how threat actors are targeting you.
Pulling in data sources, selective device imaging and analysis of forensic data is merely the starting point of what we do. Our analytics team pulls data from open-source intelligence and other proprietary sources that enrich typical forensic data to give you much greater context and confidence.
We can see connections that others miss. And those connections are often the difference between simply reviewing an event and truly understanding how to prevent, attribute and seek damages for an event. This means we can dig deeper and get you more thorough results faster.
When it comes to forensic investigations… experience matters. Simply put, experience gets you better results faster. Our analysts are able to dive deeper into the indicators and evidence that bad actors leave behind because they have been tracking sophisticated adversaries for decades.
Identifying sophisticated threats often takes multiple investigative techniques to get results. Using these methods in a programmatic way gets results that are unique to the industry.
Our investigative methodologies cover:
It is this comprehensive approach that sets us apart.
We provide a team of operators with unparalleled investigative and intelligence experience, access and custom tools.
Our investigations are technology-enabled. We create custom-built solutions for your organization and the unique threats you face.
We live outside the box, applying language skills, legal know-how and nation-state quality tactics to find and mitigate threats.
Attribution is inherently human. Some group or individual is attacking you.
Our investigators are trained and equipped to enumerate attacker communities or engage with your adversaries directly to elicit information.
We determine what kind of malicious actor, an insider for example, is responsible for threatening behavior, intellectual property theft, or disclosure to an unauthorized third party.
We help identify and make that determination for our clients and advise on appropriate mitigation steps.
Many people view attribution as limited to cyber and nation-state threats but we increasingly see threat actors who are disgruntled employees, insider threats or otherwise motivated by financial interests.
For example, one large enterprise organization required our assistance attributing a threat actor that was harassing their company and employees in an effort to profit from shorting the stock.
Nisos was able to identify the malicious actors through publicly available means. The findings empowered the company to take legal action and stop the loss.
Nisos is comprised of a diverse group of operators with diverse backgrounds in law enforcement, government agencies and the private sector.
Let us treat your emergency like it’s our emergency. Time is your most limited resource. It won’t be wasted with us.
Our operators will work with your team and maintain direct communication from start to finish.
We are adept at briefing our work and findings to a variety of stakeholders, from your most technical employees to C-level officers in an organization.
Our operators have experience briefing at the highest levels of national security and we enjoy the opportunity to discuss our work, from the HIGH LEVEL to the minutiae of tactics and procedures.
At the end of the day, you need a thorough understanding what occurred and how to remediate. You should have as much attribution as possible about who or what was responsible for the incident.
Throughout the investigation, we provide one-on-one feedback with our experts, bringing a level of attention to detail few others offer.
In our reports, we also include assessments regarding motive so you know how to best protect against future attempts.
