Agio Managed Public Cloud
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a highly optimized cloud infrastructure that allows you to take advantage of a dynamic environment without you having to provide the infrastructure. But the downside is that this is where the service ends. AWS requires you to manage and maintain your cloud environment, including all of the complexity and time involved. To meet this need, Agio offers a full service cloud management offering partnered with AWS’ infrastructure. We take care of everything—from the implementation and migration of your environment, to ongoing support and billing.

Here’s what the program includes:

o Data Mapping
o Incident Response Plan Development & Review
- Incident Response Policy
- Data Classification Policy
- Incident Response Procedure
- Incident Response Communication-Chain of Command Procedure
o Tactical/Operational Incident Response Tabletop Exercise
Monthly Incident Response Readiness Review
Quarterly Status Review (monthly for first three months after going live)
o Intelligence Briefings
o Cybersecurity Events & Incidents Statistics Review
Annual Executive IR Tabletop Exercise
Incident Response Annual Review & Report
Red Team Security Assessment* (annually, if applicable)
It’s about practicing chaos. You’ll never be able to predict the specific type of breach your firm will ultimately fall victim to, but you can predict how you respond. And that response is comprised of the people you have in place, the processes you’ve implemented, and the technology that supports it all. How do these three facets interact with one another when tragedy strikes? Where are the loopholes, the gaps, and the ambiguity within your plan?
These are the details, when left undiscovered, unremediated and unrehearsed, create chaos on top of chaos for organizations.
We’re here to fix that. By proactively learning your environment, mapping what data lives where, reviewing your policies with a critical eye, and then practicing chaos, we improve your reaction to a breach. Your response goes from languid, haphazard and insufficient to immediate, efficient, and most importantly, effective.
It’s tempting to sit back and hope that a breach won’t happen. Or maybe when it does, that it’s not that bad. But when your company’s operations, reputation, and even your career are on the line, hope isn’t a strategy. Because even if the initial breach doesn’t bring down your environment, the longer the malicious activity goes undetected and unaddressed, the worse it gets. What may have started as a cybersecurity event, can quickly escalate to an incident and a full-blown breach.
TIME IS MONEY
Then there’s the financials. Bringing in an Incident Response team only after a breach guarantees one thing; you’re going to pay. Why? Because the firm you bring in, even if they’re the best, doesn’t know your environment. They don’t know where your data lives; they don’t know how you collect and store that data (for analysis); they don’t know your policies; and they don’t know who’s involved in your Incident Response Plan. They’re flying blind, and it’s going to take them time to get up to speed. That’s time you’re paying for, and even more importantly, that’s time in which the breach is getting worse.
By investing in an Incident Response service, proactively, you drastically reduce your time to resolution, which means less money out the door, less exposure and ultimately less damage. And you look good for preparing for the inevitable. You took chaos, mapped it, prepared for it, and even amortized it (i.e the cost). Well played.
