What are Post-Breach Advisory Services?

Post-breach Advisory services from Aon can provide you with the critical support you need in the aftermath of a cyber incident.

Post-Breach Advisory Services: The Why and When

Explore the research and data points below to learn more about why post-breach advisory services can be both a short-term and long-term value-add for organizations at time of rising cyber security risk:

  • 46%

    of organizations had at least one successful cyber attack over a 12-month period. (1)

  • 68%

    Increase in the overall number of compromised records between 2020 and 2021. (2)

  • 8.6%

    Public companies lose an estimated 8.6% of their value after a cyber breach. (3)

Organizations that find themselves victims of a major cyber security breach are by no means alone. The complexity of corporate networks and the sophistication of cyber criminals mean that security incidents are virtually inevitable — and serious ones are not uncommon. The cost of a data breach is on an upward trajectory, and it is prudent that companies suffering from a costly attack attempt to make every effort to prevent it from happening again. After a damaging cyber incident, the security team tends to focus on tactical matters related to recovery, but it is important to also think strategically about preventing the next attack.
