The initial stage of our comprehensive Incident Response Program involves meticulous preparation. Our cybersecurity experts collaborate with your team to gather the important information, including a detailed inventory of all assets, applications, and critical services/hardware, which are ranked based on their importance. We then develop a tailored incident response plan to facilitate rapid response, detection, and analysis in the subsequent phase. This happens in minutes.
Visibility & Planning
Upon detecting a security incident, time becomes a critical factor for your business. Our skilled security professionals promptly gather relevant information from your team, analyze the situation, and pinpoint the breach's origin, extent, and severity. Following detection and analysis, we move forward with containment, eradication, and recovery, effectively neutralizing the threat and implementing recovery measures.
Containment & Remediation
During the post-incident phase, we carefully assess the factors that led to the initial incident and take proactive steps to prevent similar occurrences in the future. Given the ever-evolving threat landscape, our incident response process is subject to periodic updates to ensure optimal security for your business. Partner with us to enhance your cybersecurity resilience and safeguard your valuable assets.

How Our Cyber Incident Response Process Works
Frequently Asked Questions
What immediate steps should I take if my business is hit by ransomware?
The first step is to isolate affected systems to prevent the spread of the ransomware. Next, report the incident to your local authorities and contact a professional incident response service, like ours, to help manage the situation and begin the recovery process.
My business email has been compromised, what should I do?
Start by changing your passwords and implementing multi-factor authentication. Then, notify your IT department or managed IT service provider, who can track the breach source and assess the damage. It's also important to alert your contacts about the breach to prevent them from being targeted.
How do I know if my company's data has been stolen?
Signs of data theft include unusual network traffic, unexpected system reboots, slow performance, and unsolicited password reset emails. An IT professional can conduct a thorough investigation to confirm.
How can I safely recover from a ransomware attack?
Recovery should be handled by cybersecurity professionals. They can help clean your systems, restore data from backups, and strengthen your security to prevent future attacks. Paying the ransom is generally discouraged as it does not guarantee data recovery and encourages more attacks.
What is the role of an incident response plan in a cybersecurity incident?
An incident response plan provides a structured approach for handling cybersecurity incidents. It ensures rapid, effective response, minimizing damage and reducing recovery time and costs.
I suspect an ongoing cyber attack. How can I confirm it?
Signs of an ongoing attack can include system slowdowns, unexpected reboots, unsolicited password reset emails, and new, unfamiliar files or programs. Engage a cybersecurity professional immediately for confirmation and mitigation.
How can I prevent future ransomware attacks?
Regular employee training, routine backups, keeping software and systems updated, using reliable security solutions, and employing a trusted IT service provider for continuous monitoring can significantly reduce the risk of future attacks.
How can I ensure my business email is secure?
Use strong, unique passwords and enable multi-factor authentication. Regularly update your email software, avoid clicking on suspicious links, and conduct periodic staff training on identifying phishing emails.
Can cybersecurity insurance help in a ransomware incident?
Yes, cybersecurity insurance can cover costs related to a ransomware attack, including incident response, data recovery, legal fees, and business interruption losses. However, it's essential to understand what your policy covers before an incident occurs.
What information do I need to provide to a cybersecurity professional during a security incident?
Share as much detail about the incident as possible, including when it was first noticed, what anomalies were observed, and what actions were taken. Providing system logs can also be extremely useful.
