Recon InfoSec Announces Free Cyber Threat Hunts for Critical Infrastructure Organizations

Recon InfoSec, a security operations services provider, announced that it will provide cyber threat hunting services for free to a limited number of critical infrastructure organizations.

Starting this May, the company will provide one free threat hunt per quarter to an organization belonging to a critical infrastructure sector as defined by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

CISA currently recognizes 16 such sectors, including the communications, defense, energy, information technology and transportation sectors.

Recon InfoSec said it will select organizations based on their mission and criticality. Organizations that have undergone an assessment by CISA in the past 24 months are not eligible, Recon InfoSec said.

The information technology-focused threat hunt will include investigations of network perimeters, cloud resources and current and past compromises, the company said.

Recon InfoSec added that its team is made up of cyber and information security experts, including former members of the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Andrew Cook, director of security operations at Recon InfoSec, said the company hopes to ensure that organizations are not working in an environment that has already been compromised.

“Nation-state threats establish long-term footholds and persist over many months and years,” Cook added. Recon InfoSec said that its free service can benefit some of the most targeted organizations.

CEO Bob Drobish added that the company’s service will help ensure that organizations have timely access to cybersecurity resources amid a rise in threats to critical infrastructure.
