Fast and Effective: Incident Response plans to ensure our
clients can keep their data and sensitive information secure.
Incident response is a serious matter and a topic that involves both C-suite executives and entry-level employees. Preventing a breach takes a team effort from an entire organization. Responding to an attack also requires the cooperation of all employees. Roles and responsibilities must already be in place in order to best repair the affected systems.
In the case of a successful security breach, a business with a formalized incident response plan will be able to limit data loss and network damage better and address the cause of the incident quickly.
At CDG, we offer both emergency incident response and proactive retainers. In the event of a security incident, timely deployment of an experienced incident response team is essential to minimize harm, eradicate the threat, and restore system integrity.

Our services ensure your environment can respond to adverse security events rapidly.
Thousands of cyberattacks happen every day. These threats are nondiscriminatory as everyone is susceptible to a network breach. On average, it takes over 200 days for a business to detect and contain a cyberattack. During this time, a significant amount of sensitive data can become exposed, financial repercussions are sure to follow, legal lawsuits may be filed, and reputations can tank. These future incidents are cause for concern and reason to invest in a cyber incident response team.
Today, society and the economy are deeply entrenched in the digital world. The rise of technology has made things easier and simpler. But, simultaneously, it has given opportunities to cybercriminals and foreign actors to take advantage of poorly protected networks and lackadaisical security hygiene. Too often, organizations, be they start-ups or enterprises, are recklessly exposing themselves to potential breaches. In turn, cybersecurity incidents take place, and businesses are left scrambling to deploy or find an incident response team. The lack of forethought into incident response planning is positioning businesses in a vulnerable security state.
Incident response is not a cybersecurity strategy, and neither should it be a business’s first line of defense against a security breach. Here at CDG, we view incident response efforts as a pillar within a holistic cybersecurity plan, but it is not the only service a business can rely on. In order to build and uphold a comprehensive security posture, organizations must understand the role and importance of incident response. Future attacks will continuously be a threat, and it is in the best interest of organizations to hire internal talent or work with an incident response team to develop a comprehensive incident response plan. Security breaches won’t disappear as technology and software advance, but with the correct preparation and behaviors, a business can reduce the risk of network infiltration.
The best incident response plans are the ones that take an active stance against cyber threats. Unfortunately, an estimated 77 percent of organizations lack an incident response plan.
Of the businesses that do have incident response processes in place, very few have tested or know how their response plan operates. In a study by IBM Resilient, 54 percent of businesses with a formalized incident response plan did not test it regularly.
It’s a fact that incident response isn’t just a security concern – it’s a business concern. A successful incident response plan follows a life cycle of developing new strategies, improving current practices, and updating the existing plan. Preventing a future cybersecurity incident relies on avoiding complacency within a formal incident response plan.
When businesses prioritize their cybersecurity posture, they significantly reduce the risk of a successful breach, and in the case that one does occur, they are better prepared to handle the situation.
Incident response services need to be multifaceted and comprehensive – whether that is creating an incident response plan or answering an emergency breach.
