Cyber-Breach Response

As the number of cybercrime attacks grow, it's critical for businesses to view cyber security as a business risk and not just issues that can be solved easily by their IT departments.

Businesses around the world are recognizing the importance of equipping themselves with the defences necessary to mitigate any damage caused by a cyber attack, but the focus thus far has been on protecting information by preventing data breaches. Yet, due to the hostile threat environment, it's only a matter of time before all businesses will suffer a breach.

Today's reality is that having an effective cyber breach response plan is no longer optional. Businesses who aren't prepared to respond to a cyber breach will only compound any damage the attack causes and the eventual fallout, which could direct a serious blow to its reputation and bottom line.

As the number of cyber threat and incidents increases, organizations must develop a data breach response plan that documents the necessary steps to take and the teams to activate in the event of a breach.

With over 100,000 incidents in 2016, including 2,260 confirmed data breaches across 82 countries, the proper response and management of incidents is of critical importance for security firms and departments including law enforcement, government and the military. Cyber breach response is built on the concept of margin for error. What is the most appropriate way to respond when our defenses fail and our systems are breached?

Cyber Breach, or Incident Response, is the traceable, effective and agile approach to managing an attack from an internal or external attacker that has breached your security controls. It is a strategic approach to handling the incident with the goal of limiting damage, reducing recovery time and cost while detecting the path the attacker has followed so that it can be closed and secured.


The number of publicized U.S. data breaches tracked in 2015 totaled 781, according to a recent report released by the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) and sponsored by IDT911.

Our Cyber Breach team is comprised of experienced breach response, forensic investigators and security consultants with knowledge gained through security engagements in law enforcement, military, public and private sector breaches and security events. Our team is precise, confidential and ready to provide data breach response services, no matter the situation your organization might face.
