Companies are dealing with the new reality that their cybersecurity posture is important to business partners, customers, employees, board members, shareholders and regulators across the globe. With the dramatic rise in the prevalence and frequency of cyber-attacks that result in lost intellectual property, business intelligence and customer data, the question is “when, not if” your organization will experience a security compromise.

  • “Knowing the adversary”: threat actors, attack vectors, methodologies and risks to your enterprise and its critical data assets
  • Risk mitigation strategies, including evaluating cloud SaaS and IaaS offerings, and implementing contractual and technical methods for shifting security risks
  • Step-by-step breach planning to minimize disruption to the business, efficiently comply with regulatory obligations, and preserve brand and reputation
  • Internal and external communication strategies to manage breach incidents while reinforcing public trust and minimizing regulatory scrutiny
