In an increasingly interconnected and technology-enabled world, it’s no longer a question of whether you’ll experience a cybersecurity incident, but when. Recent high-profile breaches show that you can get hit by an attack when you least expect it. It’s crucial to be prepared and able to respond effectively − whatever your industry, location or organisation size.

Cyber incident response is the reaction and associated measures to an IT security incident. In order for your company to be able to act directly in an acute case, you need an incident response readiness. It prepares you for a cyber emergency and helps you to react faster and more effectively in such case.
With a clearly defined response framework and governance in place, clear ownership, an agreed decisionmaking and escalation pathway, you’re able to respond rapidly when required.
With a plan covering both the business and technical aspects of response of recovery and drawing on broad capabilities from across the organisation, you can be sure of having the right people involved from the word go.
Your people, processes and tools are well rehearsed and ready to respond. It’s like building ‘muscle memory’ that can be triggered immediately in the event of a breach.
Your operational resilience is better because business as usual can be quickly restored – and you’re able to identify and address the lessons learned to help prevent a repeat of the incident.
Our incident response and recovery team has a broad range of capabilities to be able to provide support across the prepare, respond and recover phases of a cyber crisis or incident.
We have a broad range of flexible solutions, including entire packages, to help you plan and prepare for cybersecurity incidents. Feel free to call us to discuss the best way forward for you.
