Audit everything regularly, turn security into an operational practice. Don’t take risks while investigating network compromises, if collecting evidence comes at the risk of antagonising an attacker or of causing data loss, look for another way.
I am a telco & internet entrepreneur, nerd wrangler and massive lover of bacon. I was involved in the investigation of and successful conviction of David Noel Cecil – “Evil, The NBN Hacker”.
This article is written from the experiences I had before, during and since the successful execution of Operation Damara. My experiences are from a telco perspective however they are just as applicable to corporate and government networks.
I currently work with several Australian Telco’s and IT businesses, developing Incident Response Plans and helping them ensure the ongoing continuity of their mission critical infrastructure.
If your organisation doesn’t have a strategy for dealing with internet security incidents, I would love to help you out!
