Quality incident response specialists are too scarce and too expensive for most firms to maintain on their own, and similar difficulties exist for the public sector in providing these services as a public good, although certain jurisdictions in the United States are beginning to establish public cyber response forces. By pulling resources together, private actors may provide for their own collective security, effectively sharing the “tax” burden among a likewise defense-minded community to support the unlucky few who fall victim to an attack.
No organization in the world can claim one-hundred percent impenetrable physical security, no matter how much they invest in their physical security posture; thus no organization should expect to achieve one-hundred percent impenetrable cybersecurity, no matter how much they invest in preventative tools or services. Regardless of how much a firm or individual spends on in-house security, they should always have the assurance of activating high-quality emergency response services when and where they need it.
Our roots in physical security and risk management give us the unique disposition and capacity to respond to cyber incidents when and wherever needed—including in areas considered high-risk dangerous by other firms. Via our ‘Ruggedized Incident Response’ service, we are able to provide our cyber incident responders with the appropriate level of organic Blackpanda international security consultants and logistics support to take on missions in the world’s highest-risk areas, servicing our clients where others will not.
