Over the course of 12 months we onboard, organize, prep and continually test your ability to respond when a breach happens. We get, and keep you, battle-ready so when an attack happens, we mobilize immediately and effectively, neutralizing the threat and containing your exposure.×
Here’s what the program includes:
Practiced ChaosIt’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.The IncentiveIt’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.Agio Incident Response×Active ResponseWhen a breach actually happens:×
