Preparing for a Cyber Incident
Cyber incidents and data breaches continue to proliferate globally, targeting organizations across all industries and sectors. Worldwide monetary loss to cybercrime is measured in the hundreds of billions. Our transnational cybercrime investigation cases in 2018 accounted for $1.9B in actual financial losses and $6.8B in potential losses averted due to law enforcement action.
We have extensive experience in cyber incident response and the subsequent criminal investigations, and we offer this guide outlining basic steps an organization can take before, during and after a cyber incident.
