Learn how your organization can protect itself with IR1, an incident response retainer curated specially for SMEs, in partnership with MyRepublic.

11 November 2022, Singapore - Blackpanda is pleased to announce a joint partnership with MyRepublic, to launch IR-1, APAC's premier cyber incident response solution curated specially for small and medium businesses (SMBs). 

Described as the world’s most frightening cyber security threat, global cyber attacks increased by 168% between 2021-2022 and are estimated to cost the world USD 20 billion in 2022 alone. Recent data has shown that Singapore businesses are among the most frequently targeted worldwide by ransomware attacks.

Having an efficient incident response team that is familiar with the local landscape, can help organizations successfully manage the impact of a breach and reduce operational, financial, and reputational damage.

With the joint IR-1 partnership, Blackpanda and MyRepublic can assist organizations strategize a comprehensive cyber incident response solution to help organizations get back on their feet after a cyber attack.

The IR-1 is tailored specifically for SMBs in APAC. Businesses with an annual revenue of not more than USD 50 million are perfect candidates for the IR-1.

The IR-1 is an annual incident response retainer which offers SMBs a direct 24/7 incident support line to notify Blackpanda’s digital forensics and incident response specialists as soon as a cyber breach or incident occurs. SMBs also get access to the exclusive IR-1 cyber risk e-resources platform, which serves as a dedicated system to host all cyber security notifications and e-resources. In addition, SMBs will enjoy preferential rates for all additional cyber risk services offered by Blackpanda to enhance current cyber risk posture. 

“We are thrilled to partner with MyRepublic for the inaugural launch of IR-1 to address the unmet market needs for incident response solutions for SMBs. With cyber threats on the rise, it is imperative that smaller businesses should invest more into activating professional incident responders in the event of a cyber breach. Through IR-1 and the partnership we have with MyRepublic, we believe in building a sustainable and resilient cyber environment for SMBs in Asia."
