Incident Response & Forensics


Data breaches are on the rise. Organisational liability is high. Risks of identity theft are pervasive. Particularly vulnerable are industries and organisations bound by processes and procedures involving the acquisition, processing, retention, transmission and destruction of protected data, including:  PII, PIFI, and PIHI.​ To buck this trend, regulators continue to stack new responsibilities on organisations when they experience a breach: detection capabilities, appropriate response plans, forensic investigation processes, and the capability to report to constituencies and/or regulators.


In a Protiviti survey of more than 1,100, CIOs and IT professionals ranked incident response as a critical priority. This underscores a growing demand by IT functions and C-suite executives for rigorous incident management plans anchored by up-to-date response policies and trusted processes.
