An incident response capability assessment is the best way for your organization to test how prepared you are in the event of an incident occurring. We do this through simulated, real world examples that test your people, processes, and technology. It is good to have a plan in place, but without testing that plan, you will never discover gaps until it is too late.
The best example of why an Incident Response Capability Assessment is necessary is the COVID-19 pandemic. Millions of workers had to instantly transition to working from home, and IT leaders were left scrambling. No one knows when the next disaster will strike. But, it is important to know your organization is ready for the next natural disaster, pandemic, or most importantly, cyber attack.
According to the 2021 Thales Data Threat Report, 45% of US companies suffered an information security breach in the past year. This number is expected to continue at an increasing rate each year as cyber threats become more and more innovative. A cyber attack is a matter of when, not if. Not knowing whether your backups are truly ready, or if everyone in your organization knows what to do in the event of a breach is setting yourself up for failure.
The incident response team at FirstCall Consulting will test every part of your organization to ensure you are ready in the event of an attack. Many organizations we talk to believe they are ready for an incident because they have backups of their data, but this could not be farther from the truth. In fact, the Veeam Data Protection Report 2021 finds that 58% of backups fail.
Recovering from a cyber attack is a scary time for any organization with or without an Incident Response Plan. Time is of the essence when an incident occurs, and the cyber security experts at FirstCall Consulting have the knowledge and experience to return you to normal operations in the quickest and most cost effective way possible.
In the event of an attack, our incident response team can help in the short term with root cause analysis, post incident forensics, and remediation steps for affected systems. The incident response management team at FirstCall Consulting can also assist you in developing a business continuity plan uniquely tailored to your business. This will help prevent future security incidents, and give you the tools necessary to keep your system secure.

48% of SMBs Do Not Have a Disaster Recovery Plan
Cyberattacks are becoming more and more common, but with the right precautions in place, they can be stopped before disaster strikes. Everyone in your organization knowing their roles and responsibilities before a data security breach occurs is crucial to long term success. The cost of an attack could make your business close its doors for good.
Business downtime, loss in reputation, and lost revenue make up only a small portion of the true cost of a security breach. Many businesses today think they are doing everything possible to reduce their risk, but safer and cost effective alternatives exist that can help you keep your company safe.
