What is Cyber Incident Response?
Cyber incident response is part methodology, part practical action. On average, cyber attacks cost businesses £3.18 million per data breach per year. This means that the second an attack occurs, your business starts incurring hefty losses. Thankfully, this doesn’t have to be the case.
Having a cyber incident response plan in place helps counter financial losses and business disruption in real-time. At Defensity, we help implement response plans accordingly. We also offer on-demand, direct emergency response assistance.
What Does Cyber Incident Management Look Like?
At Defensity, we offer a range of real-time network security services. These include real-time security monitoring. We also help businesses implement security orientated standard operating practices.
When standard operating practices are in place, employees and senior managers will know how to react to specific attack threats. However, more urgent technical assistance might be necessary.

Our Response Process
When you call our cyber incident response team, we start a multi-step process of threat identification and eradication.
First, we identify whether you are dealing with a minor cyber security event or a full-blown incident. To do this, we start analyzing network traffic. This allows us to ascertain whether sensitive data has been stolen.
Next, we contain threats. This will typically see us lock down sensitive systems until we are 100% sure that attackers no longer have access. During eradication and recovery, we then remove threats and restore networks and IT infrastructure to full operability. In most cases, this will necessitate restoring systems using backups and recovery tools.
Why You Need a Cyber Incident Response Plan
Cyber security should never be taken for granted. Every data breach can result in crippling financial and reputation damage. In the case of small businesses, many never recover.
