The unfortunate truth about cyber attacks is that, sometimes, they are successful. This could be due to organisations’ lack of cybersecurity controls, inadequate cyber hygiene practices, poor cyber crisis management, or the lack of resources in combating highly resourced and sophisticated threat actors. This was the case of a BlackCocaine ransomware attack which occurred in a banking and financial software company.

The Ensign Hunt and Incident Response Operations (HIRO) team was activated to investigate. It provided support to the targeted company, deploying containment measures to mitigate the impact of the breach. Download the case study to learn more.
