“Microsoft released a patch some time ago for the EternalBlue vulnerability but many of the organisations will not have deployed it yet for various reasons: they may be still testing the patch, they may be using ‘antiquated' versions of Microsoft operating system or simply have a policy of not applying patches to certain systems to avoid destabilisation.”

“Organisations can’t simply continue to harvest data without understanding what’s really needed, how long they need to keep it, how secure should it be, who should have access. Data has to be treated like any other physical asset and boards need to recognise this and take the lead. You wouldn’t leave your office, plant or factory open to intruders so why leave your data exposed?”

The client is a government department within an EU country that handles some of the most sensitive data for defining and enacting national policy. The department is situated within two sites; both highly secure from physical attacks and regularly welcome some of the most senior national and international governmental figures for meetings and presentations. The department has a small IT team that are all security cleared to deal with routine systems and application management but are not considered a dedicated InfoSec team. Following a change of senior leadership within the department, it was decided that information security processes needed to be strengthened and the department contacted Encode to instigate a review and then strengthen both technological controls and processes.
To test its security posture against targeted cyber-attacks, a retail Bank contracted Encode to attempt to breach its network and gain control over their critical IT systems, through an Extrusion Testing™ engagement. The project resulted in the Encode Red Team establishing multiple entry points into the Bank’s network and gaining domain administrator access privileges through a combination of social engineering, vulnerability exploitation and enterprise account takeover techniques, commonly used in Advanced Persistent Threat type of attacks. The subsequent detailed report of the active attack simulation has allowed the Bank to mitigate critical vulnerabilities, improve security process and helped raise situational awareness among C-level executives on the Bank’s exposure against such threats.
