CURRENT VERSION: 18 September 2023

1. Subscription of Your IR-1
1.1 By subscribing for IR-1, you unconditionally accept and agree to be bound by the latest version of the Terms of Service as published and made available at https://www.blackpanda.com/legal.
1.2 These Terms of Service only govern the relationship between us and you. The dealings between you and any other third party are not governed by these Terms of Service.
1.3 If you are registering for a IR-1 on behalf of a corporate entity or another individual (the “Principal”), you represent and warrant that you have been validly authorized to (a) register for the IR-1 on behalf of the Principal, and (b) agree to and bind the Principal to these Terms of Service.

1.4 In order to complete your subscription for the IR-1, we will require you to provide the following information:
(a) Details of your business;
(b) Your business email address. If you do not have any, please provide your personal email address. It is important that you provide to us your business email address as we will use this to determine your apex domain name which is used or integral to your business. By understanding your apex domain name, we are able to respond more quickly and better understand your business needs, cyber infrastructure and risks in the event you notify us of a Cyber Security Incident;
(c) Any subdomain or ancillary domain names which your business may also use. Examples of such domain names would include domain names which you used to (but no longer) host your business website or email addresses at.
1.5 You should receive the Confirmation Email immediately after a successful submission of your registration. Your IR-1 account may be registered or created for you on behalf of you by our partner resellers and distributors. If you have not received your Confirmation Email within this time period or have difficulties in the registration process, please reach out to us at https://ir1.blackpanda.com/pages/contact-us
(a) The Platform is currently launched in a Closed Beta with our key partners. This does not affect or compromise our commitment and service standards under our obligations under these Terms of Service.
(b) We understand and anticipate that the registration procedure may have unnecessary technical delays during our Closed Beta phase. We also understand that this may unfairly impact the commencement of your IR-1 Term. Our commitment is therefore to provide you with your Confirmation Email at the earliest possible and always as set out in Section 1.6. In the event the registration process was not properly or accurately completed, we will assist you to rectify the submitted data as a matter of goodwill and in good faith in the event you suffer a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident.
2. General Coverage of IR-1
During the IR-1 Term:
(a) Blackpanda shall provide you with “Cyber Security Incident Response Services” (as further described at 3A) in the event you suffer a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident and decide to use your Activation Credit.
A “Qualifying Cyber Security Incident” is a Cyber Security Incident that must meet all of the following criteria:
- This Cyber Security Incident has resulted in the unauthorized access of at least one of your Endpoints. An Endpoint is any physical or virtual computing device or computing environment that communicates with a network to which it is connected.
- This Cyber Security Incident commences during, is discovered by you during, and is informed to Blackpanda during your IR-1 Term.
- The Cyber Security Incident would fall under one of the following categories or descriptions: basic web application(s) attacks, system intrusion, business email compromise, malware, or ransomware.
- The Cyber Security Incident is not a denial-of-service attack (DDoS or DoS).
Your “Activation Credit” is a single-use credit for you to provide to use in the event you require Blackpanda to respond to a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident. It cannot be used for a Cyber Security Incident which does not meet the qualifying criteria above. The Activation Credit is deemed used when you submit a valid notification to us. We will refund any Activation Credit(s) used for a Cyber Security Incident which is not a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident.
(b) Blackpanda shall also provide you with preferential rates for any of our cyber security technical and consultancy services. These services can be used as prehabilitation or preventative measures. These services can also be used if you have utilized all Activation Credit(s) or for a Cyber Security Incident which is not a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident.
1. A “Cyber Security Incident” is an incident or event whereby an action is taken through the use of an information system or network that would result in an actual or potentially adverse effect on an information system, network, and/or the information residing therein.
2. Examples of Endpoints include but are not limited to laptops, mobile phones and tablets, desktops, cloud servers, on-premises servers, software-as-a-service services.
3A. Our Cyber Security Incident Response Services
If during the IR-1 Term you submit a valid notification to Blackpanda that you have experienced a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident, we shall provide to you with the following Cyber Security Incident Response Services to identify, contain and report on the damage and loss you may have suffered following the Cyber Security Incident.
These services are SUBJECT ALWAYS to our (a) reasonable availability at the time of your report; and (b) our professional opinion and expertise on a proportionate response to your Cyber Security Incident. This ensures that all our customers receive the relevant Blackpanda cyber incident responder for their Cyber Security Incident.
(a) Cyber Security Incident Triage Services:
A Blackpanda cyber incident responder shall triage the Qualifying Cyber Security Incident, providing a preliminary classification of the incident based on industry standards.
We will provide you with a general plan of action and recommendations for handling the Qualifying Cyber Security Incident based on our professional assessment and triage.
(b) Cyber Security Containment Services:
In certain occasions, the Cyber Security Incident may still be ongoing. This means that there is continued unauthorized access of at least one of your Endpoints. Our ability to identify and assist with such Active incidents will depend on your cooperation and our ability to access your information systems and networks in a timely manner.
We will use our reasonable efforts to respond and contain an Active Cyber Security Incident. Due to the nature of Active Cyber Security Incidents, we are unable to warrant that we are able to respond to or contain the Active Cyber Security Incident completely or even at all. This is because not all Active Cyber Security Incidents are the same.
(c) Basic Remediation Advisory Services:
We will also provide you with recommendations and basic advice which you can take on board to improve the vulnerability which gave rise to the Cyber Security Incident. However, depending on the vulnerability which caused the Cyber Security Incident – not all proposed steps are remediable without additional cost and expense (whether for further professional services and analysis or as a result of additional requirements you may not have). Where possible, we will highlight these costs and expenses and use our reasonable efforts to advise you. We will not incur any costs and expenses without your express consent to do so. It is important for you to consider and understand Section 4(a) below.
3B. Our Cyber Security Incident Response Deliverables
It is our service promise that each IR-1 client will receive, in event of a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident, the following deliverables:
- Within four (4) hours of receiving the notification, we shall acknowledge the Cyber Security Incident by way of email.
- Within twenty-four (24) hours of receiving the notification, we shall arrange an incident responder to triage the Cyber Incident.
- Within forty-eight (48) hours of receiving the notification, we shall provide you with our plan of action including initial recommendations for handling the Cyber Security Incident.
UNLESS otherwise agreed to by our Blackpanda service team, all Cyber Security Incident Response Services or deliverables shall be delivered remotely. Please note that Cyber Incident Response Services or deliverables that are agreed to be delivered on-site may come at an agreed additional charge.
4. Limitation of Services and Coverage under your IR-1
IR-1 is packaged and developed as an entry-level cyber security solution for small-to-medium businesses and enterprises. We believe all businesses should have the benefit of cyber security experts. Our IR-1 Cyber Security Incident Response Services are to provide a baseline solution for your business.
Under the IR-1 Activation Credit, Blackpanda provides Cyber Security Incident Response Services and deliverables for up to the first 500 affected Endpoints.
It is important for you to note that in the event you utilize your Activation Credit under the IR-1, Blackpanda DOES NOT provide:
(a) Eradication Services: After an incident has been contained, eradication is a step that is sometimes necessary to eliminate components of the incident, such as deleting malware and disabling breached user accounts, as well as identifying and mitigating all vulnerabilities that were exploited. This may involve identifying all affected Endpoints (which involves analyzing Endpoints that were not involved in the original triage). For some incidents, eradication is either not necessary or is not performed.
(b) Remediation Services: Remediation occurs when we identify vulnerabilities within your system or data and provide a corrective action plan and take steps to resolve the vulnerability. This would also include a schedule for resolving the vulnerability and allows for appropriate testing. Under the IR-1, we only offer basic advice. We do not offer action plans nor take any steps or implement any changes on your behalf on your systems and Endpoints.
(c) Recovery Services: Cyber Security recovery addresses the steps your business will take to reconstitute or recover assets which may have been damaged, compromised or lost after a Cyber Security Incident.
(d) Restoration of Business Operation Services: Restoration refers to our development of plans for your implementation for the restoration in a timely manner of any capabilities or services that are impaired due to a Cyber Security Incident. This is sometimes referred to as “recovery” by other industry experts, such as the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
(e) Ransomware Negotiation Services: The services relating to the negotiation and payment (if any) to ransomware threat actors are not covered under the IR-1.
5. Qualifying Cyber Security Incident
In the event of a Qualifying Cyber Security Incident, you may obtain our Cyber Security Incident Response Services (details set out at Section 3 above) by submitting a notification to us through your IR-1 dashboard. If you have difficulties in the notification process, please contact us via email at email@example.com.
You must, upon request, present your Confirmation Email and any of the following (where applicable): (i) sales receipt for IR-1, (ii) notification email from our partners confirming your IR-1 Registration Code or Order Number. These requests are, among other reasons, to verify the identity of your representatives.

You agree and acknowledge that the provision of the Tests in accordance with these Terms may lead to detrimental impact on your Endpoints. By purchasing and using our IR-1 product, you are responsible for the initiation of all Tests and the outcome of the Tests and for any inconveniences, interruptions or other negative consequences thereof.
WITHOUT PREJUDICE TO ANY OTHER TERM TO THE CONTRARY, PLEASE NOTE THAT USE OF ANY TEST RESULTS OR REPORTS IS NOT RECOMMENDED IN OR IN ASSOCIATION WITH SAFETY CRITICAL SYSTEMS AND NETWORKS WHERE FAILURE TO MAINTAIN THE SECURITY OF YOUR SYSTEM AND NETWORK CAN REASONABLY BE EXPECTED TO RESULT IN DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, LOSS OF PROPERTY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE.
THE TEST SOLUTIONS (AND WHERE APPLICABLE, TESTS SOLUTIONS DATA) ARE OFFERED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR THOSE ARISING BY LAW, STATUTE, USAGE OF TRADE, OR COURSE OF DEALING.
