THE SECRET WEAPON IN WINNING THE CYBERCRIME WAR

Cyber security is an arms race that is positioned to continue indefinitely. New technologies are constantly emerging to combat cyber criminals, but regardless, criminals discover how to exploit them. Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and other security-focused vendors detect many of these attacks and alert their customers and the community, as well as do initial remediation. Security patches and recommendations are developed and published, often making their way into resources of industry standards so that IT professionals can review them and implement these recommendations. The cycle is: we create ever-increasingly resilient environments through new technologies and knowledge sharing, they are exploited, and then new technologies emerge again. Rinse and repeat. Forecheck is designed to put a stop to this endless cycle.

OUR EVER-EVOLVING SOLUTION

Forecheck is a SaaS platform that is committed to ensuring that the root causes of cyber security alerts are idenLinda Maclachlan, Co-Founder and CEO of Forechecktified and remediated, making its customers increasingly resilient over time. Most cyber-attacks are not unique, yet organizations fail to learn from past attacks or organizational mistakes that caused a breach or loss event. We are steadfastly working to accomplish our vision to see all organizations become 100% resilient to repeated cyber-attacks by learning from previous cyber-attacks and using this knowledge to prevent or quickly respond to future threats. We do this by developing thoughtful, honed resiliency practices that can then be automated.

WHY FORECHECK NEEDS TO SUCCEED

You may ask, “Why should I be concerned with combating cybercrime?” The reality is the profitability of cybercrime is rapidly rising. In 2021, cybercrime cost businesses $6 trillion in damages (CyberSecurity Ventures). Bad actors do not discriminate based on industry or company size – all businesses are at risk of a cybercrime.

Forecheck was started by a group of determined people at Entara, a leading eXtended Service Provider (XSP), who spent thousands upon thousands of hours working with top incident response organizations to restore breached systems. These people realized that most of the breaches they witnessed could have been prevented if the underlying resiliency actions associated with prior security alerts had been taken. Plain and simple, this ticked them off, and so they decided to do something about it. Forecheck was created to close the blatant resiliency gap that our founders saw in the incident life cycle.

Forecheck analyzes attacks caused by gaps in cyber controls, reviews industry loss events, actions first time events, and executes clear response plans to close out events quickly and put those learnings into action to avoid repeated events. By doing these things, our tool automatically creates a world that is safer and more secure every day than it was yesterday.

THE CREATION OF A COMMUNITY

As with any widespread issue, it is important to remember that you and your organization are not alone in their fear and confusion surrounding cyber-attacks. Because of this, we are determined to bring both community as well as technology to our Forecheck users. We are creating a supportive community of well-equipped and highly knowledgeable thought leaders who can support IT professionals who do not have the knowledge or bandwidth to fully read, synthesize, and implement security best practices. Our platform will feed data into the community as we gather more and more data on cyber threats from our customers.

FROM CYBER VULNERABLE TO CYBER RESILIENT

Our philosophy at Forecheck is that we do not give up when confronted with a tough challenge; we learn from it. Forecheck delivers long term cyber resiliency information because it is time for us to stand up to threat actors and put a stop to the endless cycle of cybercrime.
