six stage security

The first step to securing your environment is to obtain a thorough understanding of what is on your network. MAD Security discovers assets on your networks by using both passive discovery and active scanning techniques, in a non-intrusive manner.

  • Passive Network
  • Discovery
  • Active Network Scanning
  • Asset Inventory
  • Host-based Software
  • Inventory
Finding and repairing vulnerabilities is a constant battle. MAD Security uses active network vulnerability scanning techniques to identify specific operating systems and services running on assets, as well as versions of software installed and their patches. This collected data is then compared to databases of known vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, known weaknesses, and compliance issues. In addition, continuous, passive vulnerability monitoring is layered on top of the active scanning, correlating the data gathered by asset discovery scans with known vulnerability information to provide context for security incident response and remediation.
  • Continuous Vulnerability Monitoring
  • Attack Vector/Avenue Identification
  • Continuous Compliance Monitoring
Over the years, hacking techniques have become more sophisticated and continue to evolve every day, making them very difficult to detect and respond to. Continuous monitoring is one of the most reliable methods for identifying and tracking attacks against your systems and data. Whether you’re on the lookout for an unauthorized employee viewing confidential data, or a malicious outsider trying to steal sensitive data, monitoring is indispensable for a strong security posture. Additionally, monitoring is a requirement for just about every major compliance framework and regulation, from PCI DSS to HIPAA and beyond.
  • Network Intrusion Detection (NIDS)
  • Host-based Intrusion Detection (HIDS)
  • File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)
  • 2,000+ Correlation Directives
  • Hundreds of Threat Intel Data Feeds
Preventative security measures are often unsuccessful with new polymorphic malware and zero-day exploits, making it even more important to be on the watch for intruders and nefarious activities. Behavioral monitoring for your network, systems, and users is essential for spotting these threats can be useful in investigating suspicious behavior and policy violations.
  • Real-time Service & Infrastructure
  • Monitoring
  • Netflow Analysis
  • Network Protocol Analysis & Packet Capture
  • User Activity Monitoring
Humans continue to be easy targets for attackers wishing to establish a foothold in your environment. The attackers do so through clever phishing and spear-phishing tactics that prey on the trust and lack of vigilance across your workforce. Having humans that understand information security and how to minimize security risk in their everyday activities greatly improves your organization’s ability to protect its sensitive information assets. We provide fully managed testing, analysis, and reporting on your organization’s human responses to simulated phishing attacks by combining phishing assessments with “teachable moments” to reinforce security awareness and learning, and ultimately your human behavior. Additionally, we integrate the results of these assessments into our monitoring platform to fine-tune and greatly improve our threat detection capabilities.
  • Simulated Phishing Attacks
  • Teachable moments reinforcing security awareness learning
  • Results correlation with threat detection capabilities
Effective security intelligence provides the information necessary to detect threats and subsequently contain them. While it is impossible to eliminate 100% of the threats we face, reducing the time it takes to respond and contain them is certainly achievable. By focusing on responding to and containing threats we can then define security intelligence as the technology and processes used to detect compromises and coordinate the appropriate responses.
  • Security Incident & Event Monitoring (SIEM)
  • Log Management (SIEM)
  • Security Event Correlation
  • Incident Response (SIEM)
  • Threat Intelligence
All the high-profile breaches over the past few years have demonstrated that prevention doesn’t always work, even for organizations with seemingly unlimited security budgets and resources at their disposal. New threats arise every day, and it is impossible to keep up with the constant stream of bad actors, their tools, and the infrastructure they use to compromise networks. MAD Security curates threat data and combines it with supplemental information about attackers’ tools, methods, and infrastructure to produce quality threat intelligence.

CMMC

CMMC is the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification and is the DoD’s approach to safeguarding FCI and CUI. It is a maturity model jointly developed by DoD stakeholders, research centers, and the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). CMMC encompasses basic safeguarding for FCI per the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Clause 52.204-21 and the security requirements for CUI as specified in the National Institute of Standards and technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171, per Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Clause 252.204-7012.
Until recently, contractors needed to be compliant and self-attest to the 110 cybersecurity controls listed in NIST SP 800-171. CMMC now includes those controls and adds even more rigor. CMMC Level 3, the level required if you will handle CUI data, requires compliance with 130 cybersecurity controls. If you hope to do business as a DoD contractor or subcontractor, within the next several years there will be a requirement to be CMMC certified at least at Level 1 before the contract is awarded. This is for the protection of Federal Contract Information (FCI). If your company expects to work with Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), your company must be CMMC Level 3 certified or higher before the contract is awarded.
It starts with a look at the type of work you do, the future work you expect to be involved in, and in-depth look at the state of your information system environment. Every company is unique, and every company’s needs are unique. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. It doesn’t matter if your company size is one person or 100,000 people strong. It doesn’t matter if you are working out of your home or working across multiple states. We have the depth and breadth of experience to address your needs. As former DoD employees and former DoD contractors, we have a unique insight into the governance, risk, and compliance requirements and process needed for CMMC.

CMMC Solutions

How do you become CMMC compliant? MAD Security is here to help you with solving this cybersecurity puzzle for your organization. The key to CMMC is understanding that it is about maturity and is more than just checking a box.
First, you need to know where you are before you create the roadmap of where you need to be. We will assess your current environment, provide a detailed report of the gaps within and create an actionable Plan of Actions & Milestones (POA&M) and help you develop your System Security Plan (SSP).
Many organizations might have created an SSP and POA&M, however, because of a lack of resources available have been unable to take steps to work on the POA&M and improve their security posture.  Our Virtual Compliance Manager (VCM) will help you develop a roadmap and manage your compliance and implementation activities to ensure they meet the requirements of the controls from the NIST SP 800-171 and CMMC.  The VCM is your expert “right-hand man” to help keep the projects updated and ensuring they are completed to increase the cybersecurity maturity of your organization.
A key component of increasing your security posture and cybersecurity maturity is having a Continuous Monitoring Strategy in place. Our Managed Security Service (MSSP) will help continuously monitor your environment 24/7 for the peace of mind of meeting many of the controls. This is important in that it validates controls that are in place to ensure that they are functioning properly. It provides a deeper visibility into your infrastructure with continuous monitoring. As part of the roadmap developed by the VCM, understanding the maturity of the organization is key. Just putting policies and procedures in place is not enough. An organization will need to show processes that are repeatable. For example, an Incident Response Plan and Business Continuity procedure may be in place, but if it is never tested for effectiveness, the maturity level of the organization will be affected. A maturity model assessment will help you understand the level of maturity you are at now and what needs to be done for the desired state of the company.
