Cyber Incident Response


Incident preparation has evolved from “if an attack will happen” to “when” — highlighting the importance of a comprehensive incident response program and trusted partners to quickly validate and contain threats. After an attack occurs, security and response teams face immense pressure to assess, respond, and contain a threat while engaging cross-functional stakeholders.

When incidents are handled efficiently, the cost, duration and overall exposure can be decreased with impact to the business minimised. IDP Cyber’s Incident Response team partners with organisations to turn a reactionary plan into a repeatable, optimised program. With a powerful response program in place, organisations can react decisively and effectively when a security incident occurs. Better still, they can learn from every attack and proactively defend against the next one.

Our Expertise

IDP Cyber helps to keep an incident from becoming a breach. Once an incident occurs, it should be triaged as quickly as possible to stop attack activity and keep the attacker from exfiltrating information. Fast eradication of a threat is desired, yes, but steps are needed to isolate and remove the threat without impacting the ability to preserve and safeguard evidence.

Our seasoned incident response experts work with organisations to quickly collect, preserve and analyse evidence to mitigate the business impact of an incident. Investigators provide management support and communications, empowering security leaders to make the necessary business decisions return to normal operations.

Our Incident Response investigators can engage and work with your Managed Security Services team to more quickly assess and resolve the situation. Incident Response teams also engage Threat Intelligence experts to identify relevant data that may aid in a faster understanding of the threat situation and resolution. IDP Cyber experts can assess and provide readiness workshops, including tabletop exercises to build and test an your incident response program to quickly and effectively respond in the minutes, days, and weeks after an incident occurs.

Does my business need Incident Response?

Data classification schema and retention programs are critical to having visibility into the sensitive and confidential information that is vulnerable to a breach and reducing the volume of such information.

The faster the data breach can be identified and contained, the lower the costs. Of course, the more records lost, the higher the cost of a data breach. In a study, organisations experienced increases in both the time to identify and to contain a breach. We attribute increases in this time to identify and time to contain to the increasing severity of criminal and malicious attacks experienced by a majority of companies.

Detection and escalation costs include forensic and investigative activities, assessment and audit services, crisis team management, communications to executive management and board of directors.

Investments in governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) programmes that establish an internal framework for satisfying governance requirements, evaluating risk across the enterprise and tracking compliance with governance requirements can improve an organisations ability to detect and escalate a data breach.
