Cyber Preparedness


Data is as much an asset to your business as it is a liability.

Businesses need a comprehensive cyber plan that meets current data protection regulations and maintains trust with key stakeholders. Organizations with an incident response team, who prepare for cyber-attacks and privacy incidents, experience on average $2 million less in breach costs than those who are not prepared. [IBM Cost of a Data Breach Report, 2020].


Since most incidents are caused by human error, regardless of how much you have prepared, breaches and incidents will happen. The requirements, obligations and mitigations taken following such incidents impact the severity of the consequences. Our Cyber Preparedness team works with our clients to develop tailored and comprehensive plans to prepare for and respond to breaches of any size. Using our Cyber Breach Protocol, we guide clients to test and socialize their plans proactively and effectively. We also serve as breach coaches and trusted advisors.


Our services include:

  • Breach coaching

  • Cyber/Incident Protocol development

  • Tabletop breach simulation exercises

  • Cyber readiness training

  • Individual and regulator notification assistance

  • Breach reporting

  • Advice on containment and risk mitigation

  • Media/public statement management
