Cybercrime can disrupt and even shut down an organization’s operations, but it can also create turmoil among staff and leadership, delaying recovery. That’s why our digital forensics and incident response approach begins with people, including IT staff, vendors, the C-suite and often the board of directors.
Technical solutions are important but not enough: we take a dynamic approach, looking beyond the machines to understand the people who depend on them and build trusting relationships.
Once they know their roles and the best path to recovery, we can contain the damage and remediate it. Speed is paramount—the more time attackers spend in a system, the more serious the impact may be and the more difficult it may be to expel them.
Putting out the fire may provide a sense of relief, but a full recovery isn’t possible if bad actors are still in the house. This is why first-rate digital forensics are essential: we provide true security by identifying attackers and their tools while removing them from IT systems. Success requires specialized knowledge and experience—and the patience to be thorough.
We do much more than get companies, universities and government agencies back in business. Once we have assessed the cause, gravity and extent of any breach, we provide an efficient and thorough analysis of the incident, detailed evidence of the breach, data access and ex-filtration with a detailed timeline of the compromise.
Those forensics provide important guidance to help prevent future incidents. With the breach closed and the bad actors expelled, we can provide prompt, effective risk prevention and management services. The strongest security begins well before an incident occurs and should continue seamlessly long after it has been resolved.
We tailor our services to each organization’s unique needs and context, including reputational risks and regulatory requirements. Few IT departments have the specialized capabilities they need to defend their systems against today’s more sophisticated and determined attackers. That’s why so many of them turn to Lodestone for quick action and deep insights.
We know that with every incident response it’s part technical, part people.
