Cyber Incident Response and Recovery Services

When you suffer a cyber attack or data breach, the speed of your response makes a significant difference to your recovery – and the associated costs.

The sooner you act, the quicker, easier and cheaper it will be to restore affected systems and return to business as usual.

IBM’s 2022 Cost of a Data Breach Report found that data breaches that are identified and contained within 200 days cost organisations, on average, 26.5% less than those that take longer than 200 days to contain.

Benefits of effective cyber incident response and recovery

Maintaining a robust CIR (cyber incident response) capability will save you valuable time when the worst happens, enabling you to restore critical services and fulfil your data breach reporting obligations. It will also help you:

  • Reduce the costs associated with cyber attacks and data breaches;
  • Restore critical services and business functions rapidly and effectively;
  • Fulfil your data breach reporting obligations under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and DPA (Data Protection Act) 2018, and NIS Regulations 2018; and
  • Comply with standards such as ISO 27001, ISO 22301 and the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard).

Our approach to cyber incident response and recovery

At GRCI Law, we understand how cyber incidents can affect your organisation, as well as the challenges you will face when dealing with them.

It’s crucial that you get prompt, expert advice in the initial stages of an incident so that your organisation can detect, respond to and recover from it. Responding quickly can also minimise reputational and financial damage.
