What is Network Breach Detection?

Your business’s network is the nucleus around which the cell of your organization moves, progresses, and grows. It is a deep mine from which to discover vital, data-rich insights. It’s a vault of information on clients, a hub for your important information, like fiscal growth, and financials.

It’s the powerhouse of your business that helps you define your place in the industry you occupy.

But just like any system that relies on a working nucleus to keep it alive, a breaching of that system is something that can be somewhat detrimental. Your organization is the same – breaching its structure and opening its nucleus up to penetration from the outside, could be disastrous for your continued function and business health.

A network breach is just such an incident – potentially exposing your sensitive data points to those out there who are nefarious, and want to do you damage, either for financial gain, or just to get their kicks. It’s important, then, to know what to look out for when checking for a cyber breach – it could happen at any time.

In the meantime, here are some top tips on how to detect a network breach.

How Does A Breach Detection System Work?

Data breaches need not always be big news incidents, where you could at least get a heads-up of potential problems, so that you can set your defenses to work. There can be some that are so clandestine, so stealthy, that they have the potential to be more dangerous, and so in that case, a breach detection system is your best armor.

There are numerous tools out there that can be implemented into your processes and systems to automatically detect threats. At Tru Technical Partners, we have a range of these breach detectors that work with you to parry attacks. Click here to find out more

We’re vocal advocates of the prevention tactic, though. Let’s chat around the signs and symptoms of an impending breach, so that those outside forces seeking to do your business harm, don’t get an inkling of the leverage they’ll need to break your shields.

How to Detect a Network Breach

The data your business nurtures is a vital part of your organization’s overall health. In maintaining that health, preventative measures must be in place before the thought of a cure to a potential infection or breach. Knowledge, like in most cases, is then the first step to implementing a robust defense.

The nature of a data breach is that it could come from any source, so pinning down an identifiable characteristic can be tricky. There are, however, some common red lights that typically arise. Here are a few:

High Activity

If you’re noticing high activity on otherwise idle applications, this could be an indication that an unwanted entity is trying to breach your system.

Changes Without Approvals

This could include configuration changes within your system, unexpected firewall changes, reconfigurations within the cloud service structure, or even the sudden installation of programs – if you’ve noticed any of these, and can’t track them back to an approval, you may have an impending breach.

Account Lockouts

If you, or any authorized system administrator is experiencing sporadic account lockouts, you could be in the crosshairs of potential attacker.

Repeated System Crashes

Does your system keep crashing? This could be as a result of probing activity or a malware infection.

Changes in Browser Behavior

Lastly, if you’ve noticed a change to how your browser is configured – it could be in an influx of pop-ups or even unwanted redirects for example, you could be close to a data breach.

Like a beating heart, your data is a precious thing. And like all precious things, it has to be protected. These are just some ways you can equip yourself better to spot a threat before it happens. To further build your network’s armament – its tools to fend off a breach – Tru Technical Partners are your next in command.
