Experience our client-focused approach

Our information security incident team consists of former federal regulators, fraud and forensic assessors, and cybersecurity professionals. They have the technical knowledge to provide you with a detailed incident response plan that will help identify, manage, and resolve security incidents while maintaining the overall integrity of business operations.

Our diverse experience includes analysis of network intrusions, virus/malware infections, financial fraud, payment fraud, rogue internal employees, and theft of intellectual property. We also have training and experience in financial statement audits, forensic data recovery, cybersecurity vulnerability evaluations, and forensic technology.

We rely on your organization’s policies, procedures, and documented standards to define accepted standards of operation. In the absence of this we utilize generally accepted industry recommended practices and our own experience, including NIST Special Publications 800-61 and 800-86, and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council IT handbook.
