Reducing Digital Investigation Cost With DRONE

According to McAfee’s latest report (The Hidden Costs of Cybercrime), the cost and damage of cyber-attacks can rise significantly if not resolved in a fast manner. Therefore, just as businesses and individuals worldwide transform and adapt quickly to new technology evolutions, it’s essential to apply the same mindset to cyber incidents.

The golden rule for every organization is: Always stay a step ahead of cyber attackers. 

The first 48 hours after the discovery of a data breach are critical. Having a plan in place, and effective tools to execute the plan, allows many vital tasks to be put into action. As part of that plan, it’s crucial to collect and analyze digital evidence as soon as possible to avoid losing valuable information that can help you identify the source of a data breach.

For a very long time, digital forensics uses traditional methods that make rapid reaction to any kind of incident response impossible. New technologies and innovations in this field can help save time and money for collecting, collating, and analyzing digital evidence.

So, how can organizations get more results with less time and money?

Automated and Remote Incident Response

Organizations should move beyond traditional solutions and practices by deploying automated, simple, and fast digital forensics solutions.

When a data breach occurs in a traditional scenario, a DFIR specialist needs to go physically to the infected machine, manually export all digital evidence, and then analyze all the files for a couple of days, often for a number of endpoints.  

Nowadays, every digital environment consists of millions of data points, multiply that by 100, 500, 1000 endpoints, and you begin to create a workload that is hard to imagine, let alone investigate. Moreover, in the ever-evolving and fast cyber malicious attacks, we need speed much more than ever. 

With traditional practices, the cost climbs up very quickly, and results are coming very slowly. Moreover, due to the unpredictable nature of conventional methods, the cost can spiral depending on the network size, all manual work, and consultant fees. On top of it, since it will take too long to get even some preliminary results, your organization already suffered a lot of financial and reputational damages. 

Automating these processes with a simple, easy to use and remote digital forensics tool can save your organization a ton of time and highly reduce digital investigation costs.

For more than a decade Binalyze team worked on thousands of digital evidence collection cases and the fact that the team is always on the front line with the customer we found a loophole that, if automatized, can save a ton of time, reduce the investigation cost and improve incident response concept within a company.
