Cyber Threat Intelligence and Incident Response

BDO can assist with:

  • Data breach investigations
  • Threat intelligence - Dark Web recons and analysis
  • Threat intelligence - social media analysis
  • Network/host active threat monitoring
  • Threat hunting – at enterprise, nation state, insider levels
  • Training and testing – 1st responder, table top, RED team, and simulations

Cyber criminals, especially if they specifically target a certain organisation, might make references to the entity on the Dark Web – or even social media. Even more, if the organisation has been breached, their data could be shared/sold on the Dark Web. In such a case BDO South Africa, in association with other BDO offices in the world, can assist in performing a search on the Dark Web to discover intended plans of criminals or specific data that has been stolen. If an attack is imminent, BDO can assist a client to brace for an attack. If data has been stolen, BDO can assist in the “recovery”/destruction of stolen data on the Dark Web.

This BDO service offering is similar to the function of and role played by a country’s intelligence agency, gathering and interpreting intelligence in order to pre-empt an attack. It is therefore of the utmost importance that high-end and sensitive organisations pro-actively gather intelligence about their cyber presence and, specifically, how it attracts cyber criminals in the underworld.
