Recon

Obviously, the first thing I need to do is get as much information on the company as I can. Things have probably changed since I worked there, but I don’t think things have changed that much. I’ll start with my documentation, notes, and e-mail from when I worked there. It’s a good thing I archived my .PST and backed up my files to my personal laptop on a regular basis before they canned me. There are few things in the world sweeter than having local admin rights on your corporate system. Let’s see what I’ve got in there:

  • Organizational charts and reporting structure documents. These probably don’t mean anything anymore.

  • Old network diagrams. These also are probably not good anymore, but at least I still have some system names to try.

  • Office locations and main phone numbers. These are useful. Only the IT folks were laid off, so most locations that have corporate and administrative functions should still be around. New York and London are two locations listed that fall into that category.

  • Some policy documents on security. These are good because they give incident response contact phone numbers. All of the numbers except mine should work. I’ll have to verify them though.
