Breach Investigations

Recovering From a Data Breach When your company suspects a data breach, it’s imperative to have an IT expert in place to initiate an immediate investigation. You must detect and evaluate system vulnerabilities and determine any causal connection to the breach. It’s also critical to identify the compromised data, stop the drain of sensitive information from your system, and take prudent steps to prevent future incidents. A single breach can impact your company as well as your upstream and downstream business partners. It can erode client confidence and diminish your company’s reputation. A breach may subject your business to government fines, penalties, and mandatory monitoring programs. If affected parties allege negligence in causing a breach or failing to prevent one, the defense and settlement costs of civil lawsuits could cause ongoing financial disruption. Managing a data breach requires focused attention at a time when it’s also important for you to reinforce your business relationships and implement damage control solutions. Ward IT Security Consulting Group can provide the IT support and security services you need while you dedicate your efforts to running your business.
