How to respond and recover from a cyberattack

940X529 Cybersecurity 2

The way organisations respond to, and recover from cyber incidents is the true test of security effectiveness, and with the average cost of corporate cyber-attacks in Europe estimated to be £750k, the seriousness of the situation cannot be overstated.

Secure business continuity with minimal impact and no loss of data or revenue is the objective when an incident occurs, and our 5-pillar security framework (aligned to the National Cyber Security Centre, Government, and Financial Services Commission guidelines), ensures you have the very latest and best protection in place.

The continuation of normal operations and ‘business as usual’ customer service is very important for reputational protection, and our Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS) option provides a dynamic and immediate switch over to a replicated and ‘ready to go’ system in a secure, separate location, with near real-time system failover - ensuring data, applications, and the workforce are unaffected.

The ability to ‘rewind and reset’ to a point just before the incident ensures nothing is lost, and protects you from adverse consequences – ensuring a business outcome with no public awareness or negative reaction and protecting your reputation for reliability and trust.

Services included in the Respond and Recover stages include:
