Why Criminals Erase Your Logs and How to Stop Them

Millions of firms are attacked by criminals on a daily basis. Some of them are prepared for cyber-crimes but some are still easy targets for virtual criminals. But why is it that these hackers are only rarely traced and found?

It is all about system logs. A log is a fingerprint of a cyber-criminal activity that he or she leaves in an attacked system. In order to avoid their exposure, hackers try to stop logging as soon as possible. Then they always sweep and clean these logs behind, so they become virtually untraceable. It is their way of cleaning up the crime scene. According to up-to-date ISO norms, companies must archive their system logs for a certain period of time ideally off-site. Apparently, this norm helps to increase cyber-security for businesses and their clients.

In Binary Confidence, we are all ready to deal with changed, hidden or deleted system logs. In order to protect our clients to the maximum extent, we first transfer their logs to our secure environment where we store or even analyze them. In this off-site environment, we are capable of discovering what server logs have been deleted either by hackers, inappropriate system maintenance or even as a result of a disaster.

We can detect and identify changed or deleted logs together with their original form and all changes they went through while the system was under attack. What our clients need to do? Absolutely nothing, we are here for the hard work.

Large companies with highly developed cyber security systems find this service as a matter of course. What makes the log analysis by Binary Confidence exceptional is that we provide this service to all clients no matter what their size is. That makes the log analysis service accessible for all firms while the quality and security level remain maximal. Come across to the safe side with Binary Confidence and let us provide you with our professional off-site log backup, possible mistake detection in log retention policy or even log analysis. Be always prepared because criminals or critical system failure may hit at any time.
