Let us test your Incident Response Plan!


ServIcons_ITAudit_01

A control is not a control until it is tested!

A couple of important questions:  When do you want your management team to make the first call of their career to notify your customers?  During a live incident, or in a scenario test?  Wouldn’t it be better to have that debate when we’re not in a panic?

More importantly:  Do you want to figure this out on your own, or let people with decades of experience help point you in the right direction?

What makes infotex unique is that we are not only auditors, we also run a Managed Security Services firm (meaning we watch bank and hospital networks 24x7x365!)

And we’re experienced:

The first incident contained by our founder and managing partner, Dan Hadaway, was in 1988, when the human resources person in his company fired six people for using e-mail inappropriately.  We’ve counted that he has been involved in at least 160 incident responses since founding his firm in 2000.  (About one per month on average.)

Our lead technical auditor, Sean Waugh, has been knee-deep in Managed Security Services at infotex since 2006.  He has helped take down phishing sites, find and remove malware, react to DDoS attacks, and lead forensics investigations.

The rest of our team is indeed in the business of responding to incidents, and we also have proactive relationships with digital forensics investigators, law firms, and public relations firms.

If you find yourself in the middle of a great big oops, we can help.


But NOW IS THE TIME to create processes so that you won’t need our help!

We have helped banks, credit unions, and healthcare institutions develop and test their Incident Response Plans since 2000, when we started our firm.  Our managed security services put us in a unique position as auditors.

The stakes are now very high.  For example, Target reported losses of $111 million dollars in the quarter following the quarter following their huge data breach.  Hospitals and healthcare organizations are not only losing reputation, but they’re also susceptible to HHS fines of up to $1.20 million per incident.

Not only will we lead your Incident Response Team through a sound, mature tabletop test, but we will help you develop a tabletop test process, so you can continue testing on your own and without the help of a third party.  And though you must be very careful when implementing functional incident response testing, we have experience in many different attack vectors including DDoS attacks, malware, and social engineering.


So if your regulator or auditor has required you to start testing your Incident Response Program, or if you just simply want to do the right thing for your shareholders and get out ahead of the game, consider hiring seasoned professionals with the unique experience of infotex!
