Incident response – relationship-driven business

Incident response is one of the core stones of cybersecurity. A vital role of its success rate depends on a mutual, high-trust relationship between the threat hunters and the client. In other words, incident response is a relationship-driven concept based on mutual trust. A tested incident response plan designed according to client’s needs, accurately reflects critical capabilities, as evidenced in most cases. Talos has designed a detailed incident response retainer covering the full cycle of a potential threat.

The relationship between external security experts and the client is tested during a cyber crisis. An elevated level of trust between them is essential. Resilience is successful only when and if there is an established and agreed-upon process strictly followed by both parties. Time is crucial when attacks are identified. Without synced actions, the chance of fighting the threat is critically minimized.

Fundamentally, the incident response is a crucial component to support the full life-cycle services as it’s one of the last pieces finishing the loop of fighting cyber threats. One of Talos’s greatest benefits is that it provides that significant extra step that follows advising the client about suitable actions when a threat is detected.

Besides the design, and execution of a tailored incident response plan, Talos also drives it’s clients toward resolution as quickly as possible. This rapid assistance is one of the major value-adding factors.

“Our Cisco Talos partners recognize the critical role relationships play in cybersecurity and Incident Response. The Talos Team has invested significant time and effort in us to fully understand our people and environment before an incident occurred. Together, we built familiarity and trust between our teams that can only be obtained through constant engagement and drills. When we were faced with a significant security incident, that trust, and familiarity were the key differentiators that enabled us to successfully contain the threat and minimize damages.”
