For any technology company, a breach poses a massive risk – not just for them but for their clients as well. The innovative nature of the technology industry presents cyber criminals with new opportunity. Digitization, mergers and acquisitions, a global supply chain, virtual workforces and bring-your-own-device policies all create exposure. All these points of exposure make an effective cyber incident response team all the more critical.
Our client knew that finding a cyber security partner in the midst of an attack would be too late. They wanted to be prepared and so they hired us on retainer. We began by conducting an incident response readiness assessment. While we were gauging their ability to respond to a breach, the client learned of a breach in one of their Middle East offices.
Because they signed up for our incident response retainer, our team was on the ground as soon as possible – in this case within 24 hours – ready to execute a rapid response. We worked hand-in-hand with local resources to preserve evidence and conduct interviews with human resources, legal, and IT personnel. Through host-based analysis, we were able to provide our clients with the evidence they needed to prove sensitive information had been stolen through an employee’s personal cloud-based drive.
