Cyber Incident Response & Recovery

When a hacker or attacker gains unauthorized access to an online system or a digital data repository, that is called a cyber incident. Cybersecurity incidents often result in network exposure, data theft, and other system vulnerabilities.

How do you respond to a security incident?

The best cyber incident response is a fast response. By the time an incident is discovered, malicious actors have already obtained access to the network and the data therein. The confusion around what data was accessed, where the breach originated, and the extent to which the attacker has infiltrated the network will make it difficult to move forward with remediation. 

Time is a critical element in any security incident. The longer the attacker is able to remain in the network, the more they can manipulate information and exploit security vulnerabilities. With each moment that passes, there is an increased risk of permanent data loss, damaged company reputation, and exposure of client or employee information. Disaster recovery in cybersecurity can be costly in more than one way. It is important to have the plans and resources available to regain control over your network. 

ProCircular’s Cybersecurity Incident Response Services

Leading organizations in Iowa, Minnesota and across the Midwest have chosen to partner with ProCircular’s incident response and forensic experts in response to an incident. We wouldn’t be doing our due diligence as a top digital forensics company if we didn’t quickly investigate, detect, assess, contain, and attempt to eradicate cybersecurity incidents and breaches before they cause irreparable damage. 

Cyber incident response can be conducted onsite or remotely, depending on the severity of the event. ProCircular’s team has experience handling a variety of incidents, including but not limited to business email compromise, ransomware infections, command-and-control, and unauthorized exposure of sensitive information. 

Our cyber incident response is bolstered by threat intelligence from our security operations center and knowledge from our red team of sophisticated attacks and obfuscation techniques. ProCircular’s incident responders can quickly identify how, when, and where infiltration occurred and the depth of infection. Final reports include tangible recommendations to remediate any identified vulnerabilities that contributed to the incident, as well as best practice recommendations to help mitigate future risk of compromise.

What do I get?

What is a cyber incident response plan?

Preparation is one of the most critical phases of the incident response lifecycle. The worst time to create and test your incident response plan is during a live incident. Partner with ProCircular’s cybersecurity incident response experts to develop a tailored Incident Response Plan. The plan, developed from NIST standards, includes applicable compliance regulations and results from interviews with client stakeholders. 

This type of assessment prepares your team to take immediate action when an incident is detected. After the plan is created, our experts will customize and facilitate tabletop exercises to simulate real-word cyber attacks, frequently adapted from live incident response investigations, to educate your team and gain familiarity with the entire incident response lifecycle. This plan will include proper communication with internal stakeholders and a plan for involving legal, PR, or third-party forensic firms. 

Preparation is a key part of cybersecurity incident response planning, and it can help dramatically reduce the impact of suspected or active breaches.
