Incident Response Plan Development, Testing and Training

Data confidentiality or system availability incidents are inevitable. Be it criminal intrusion after personally identifiable information, a state sponsored intrusions after your client database or other intellectual property, or the extortion of your data with the use of ransomware or DDoS attacks.

Our security professionals have years of experience planning, testing and responding to real world Cyber incidents. An up to date, manageable incident response plan is vital to a timely and effective response to a potential major data incident. These plans and their proper execution can preserve an organizations reputation and prevent the loss of millions of dollars.

In helping our clients design, update and test their incident response plan, we believe the best plans go beyond your normal IT personnel and include multiple disciplines of corporate management including Legal, Marketing, Compliance, Public Relations and Operations.
