Successful incident response is all in the preparation.


When an incident occurs, finding the root cause is key to an expedient recovery. Security teams that focus on preparation have a stark advantage over their less prepared counterparts. In many cases, they can reduce investigation time by 25-50%, saving the company thousands of dollars in business continuity related costs.

  • Many organizations lack a consistent configuration and logging strategy, which can help investigators find out exactly what happened
  • Preparation leads to lower Mean Time to Detection and (MTTD) and Mean Time to Respond (MTTR)
  • If you have improved configurations and logging, and employ regular threat hunting, you’re further ahead than you think!

Companies with IR teams that perform extensive testing of response plans experience saving an average of $1.23 million on costs related to a data breach. [1]
