Incident Handling & Forensics

Breaches of security can and do sometimes occur despite an organization’s best efforts.Due to the rapidly shifting nature ofmalware, hack attacks, andinsider threats, there exists a practical guarantee that all nearly IT infrastructures will be compromised at some point.

However, when a crisis does happen, a swift response is often needed to determine its severity and reach. The need for a quick and effective response can overwhelm existing staff and management, especially those encountering a problem for the first time.

When a breach happens knowing what to do and how is vital for ensuring important information is not destroyed and that the forensic investigation process adheres to standard police principles for maintaining continuity of evidence.
The process of investigating a sophisticated cyber breach can be incredibly difficult.
