Strengthening your readiness and response to attacks

What is Incident Response?

Incident response is an organized methodology to addressing and managing the aftermath of a security breach or cyberattack to handle the situation in a way that limits damage and reduces recovery time and costs. 

Business go through tremendous losses and disruptions after a cyber attack. Sometimes hackers are able to penetrate into a company's cyber assets despite a proper cyber security posture. Incident response is the art of cleanup and recovery when you discover a cybersecurity breach.

4IR incident response team aims at delivering valuable support to business to reduce recovery time and cost.

Need and importance of Incident Response?

Cyber Attacks must be taken seriously. They bring a lot of damage to business in terms of financial losses, damage of business goodwill, data loss, etc. Cyber attacks increase in scale and frequency as the hackers are now more advanced than ever.
If an incident is not properly contained and handled can( and usually will) grow into a bigger problem that can eventually lead to a deteriorating data breach, huge expense or system collapse. Responding to an incident quickly will help an organization minimize losses, mitigate exploited vulnerabilities, restore services and processes and reduce the risks that future incidents pose.

Incident response is a vital supplement to a company’s cyber defenses. Poor incident response can make you lose customers and invite greater government regulations. 




Ensuring that there is appropriate response plans, policies and other documents in place and identify the members of your incident response team including external entities.



Identifying whether you are dealing with an event or an incident. This is where understanding your environment is critical.



Working with the business to limit the damage caused to systems and prevent any further damage from occurring.



Ensuring you have a clean system ready to restore. This may be a complete reimage of a system, or a restore from a known good backup.



Determining when to bring the system back in to production and how long we monitor the system for any signs of abnormal activity.


Lessons Learned

As the business moves back into normal operations, it must incorporate additional activities and knowledge back into the incident response process to produce better future outcomes and additional defenses.
