Blackpanda Partners With Acuris Risk Intelligence

Blackpanda partners with Acuris Risk Intelligence to provide proactive data breach detection backed by local cyber incident response.

Blackpanda, Asia’s premier digital forensics and incident response firm, is proud to announce its partnership with Acuris Risk Intelligence (ARI), trusted and independent providers of world-class data sets and intelligence on cybersecurity, fraud, money laundering, and corruption.

Acuris Risk Intelligence provides clients with proactive detection of data breaches via their Acuris Cybercheck™ solution – using skilled experts with backgrounds in law enforcement to monitor the criminal internet and identify potentially compromised identities before a breach occurs. Clients are able to check and monitor key executives and staff against the world’s largest proprietary database of compromised individual and business information to prevent account takeover, limit corporate exposure, and enforce adherence to information security policies.

Backed by Blackpanda Digital Forensics and Incident Response, clients can both detect data leaks early and activate high quality, local responders to identify the source of the breach and stop attackers in their tracks. Blackpanda maintains highly trained teams of cybersecurity and digital forensics experts throughout APAC, comprised of former international special forces, intelligence, forensics, and law enforcement professionals.

“Many clients operate for months without knowledge of an active intrusion,” says Gene Yu, Blackpanda Co-Founder and CEO. “Our partnership with ARI offers clients the intelligence to act quickly and efficiently, activating the right team, with the risk skills, at the right time.”

Christophe Barel, Managing Director, Acuris Risk & Compliance Asia-Pacific, commented, “We are excited to partner with Blackpanda, a firm with a unique and strong brand in the Asia Pacific market. Through working with Blackpanda’s teams, our clients will have access to cutting-edge digital forensics expertise, as well as comprehensive cybersecurity data and intelligence.”
