Have I been hacked?

This question needs to be answered quickly and efficiently.

Recognize initial signs

Attackers operate in secrecy. Hacker attacks can take months before they are noticed by a company. It is crucial to obtain certainty quickly and efficiently in the event of a suspected attack in order to minimize the resulting damage. An initial suspicion might exist, but is often not followed up due to incorrect risk assessment, lack of time, lack of know-how or lack of financial resources. Serious financial damage and loss of reputation are often the consequences of this misjudgment.

Following events can be indicators of an attack and should definitely be taken seriously and examined in a structured manner:

Applications do no longer accept your login data

You email contacts receive fake emails on your behalf

An external party reports a security vulnerability

An employee has clicked on a link in a phishing email

Unknown files appear on your systems

Your virus scanner suddenly disappeared

A lot of failed login attempts show up in the event logs, or you see logins from service accounts you cannot explain

Your monitoring tool shows you unusual disk utilization outside of working hours

You see load peaks in your firewall at unexplainable times
