Integrity: How It's More than Just Data Security and FIM

Integrity is a word thrown around a lot in the cybersecurity space. That’s not surprising. It is one of the three components that make up the CIA Triad, after all. However, the meaning and use of the word has been relatively limited in many security circles up until now. Let’s take a look at the security industry more broadly. In most conversations dealing with integrity, data security and File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) controls often end up being the primary focal areas.

How FIM Is More Than Just About Maintaining Compliance

The purpose of every security team is to provide confidentiality, integrity and availability of the systems in the organization. We call it “CIA Triad” for short. Of those three elements, integrity is a key element for most compliance and regulations. Some organizations have realized this and decided to implement File Integrity Monitoring (FIM). But many of them are doing so only to meet compliance requirements such as PCI DSS and ISO 27001.

Tripwire vs OSSEC

Effective cybersecurity is no longer relegated to deep-pocketed enterprises—a myriad of open source solutions can offer adequate protection to the most cash-strapped of organizations. That said, there are some capabilities free just won't get you, but how critical are they in the grand scheme of cyber resilience and are they worth the price tag? Tripwire and OSSEC are two popular solutions on opposite sides of this spectrum; let's see how they stack up.

How to Leverage File Monitoring as an Effective Breach Detection Tool

One thing that all organizations of any size need to realize is that data breaches only occur when there are not sufficient breach detection tools in place. Simply having a data loss prevention system does nothing unless you are actively using it to identify and stop a data breach from occurring. This is not to say that even with the best secure data solutions that your data is not at risk. Hackers are constantly evolving and adapting their methods, so you should never rest on your laurels.

File Integrity Monitoring (FIM): Your Friendly Network Detective Control

Lateral movement is one of the most consequential types of network activity for which organizations need to be on the lookout. After arriving at the network, the attacker keeps ongoing access by essentially stirring through the compromised environment and obtaining increased privileges (known as “escalation of privileges”) using various tools and techniques. Attackers then use those privileges to move deeper into a network in search of treasured data and other value-based assets.

What Will You Choose - Big Brand or the Most Intelligent FIM & Change Control Solution on the Market?

There are two things that you might consider when selecting a File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) and Change Control solution – 1) Depth of useable features such as efficiency in suppressing change noise and 2) Brand recognition. Some organizations might choose smart features such as powerful, closed-loop intelligent change control over the brand while some might focus on the brand name at the risk of not paying as much attention to the software’s really useful features and capabilities.

What Security Leaders Should Consider When Building a Business Case for Integrity Monitoring

We all know there are a number of different security devices that need to be continually monitored because they represent attack vectors. That’s why understanding configuration management is critical to security hygiene. As practitioners, we need to adhere to CIS controls as they provide a critical baseline for maintaining our security framework and keeping up our integrity monitoring processes.
