WE PERFORM INCIDENT RESPONSE IN FOUR STAGES:

null

Strategy

It is necessary first to determine the scope of the breach and then to examine the affected environment. What we uncover from this first step is used to create a revised security strategy to contain, eradicate and fix the site to prevent future breaches.
null

Containment

It is the goal of the containment stage to limit the amount of damage caused by the attack and then to isolate the violation to the affected system.
null

Eradication

Now is the time we determine the cause of the breach. Once this is determined, we work to eradicate the attacker from the environment and keep them locked out.
null

Remediation

After we get the attacker out and the damage resolved, we review access points from where the attacker may have infiltrated the environment, then resolve them to prevent further damage.

If you have been notified of a breach by regulators, internal IT staff or by other means, the DCF cybersecurity response team works under attorney-client privilege with companies so the violation will be confidential. We will provide all the details that your legal team may ask for, including answers to technical questions supplied in layman terms.
