Cyber Forensic Services

Advances in digital technology have changed the way we live, communicate and do our business. Today’s world is more connected than ever before. Just like your business, criminals are taking advantage of innovation and automation. No business is immune from cyber-threats. Having a hundred percent secure computer system is a myth. Organizations can’t prevent every possible attack due to limitations in the security tools and sophistication of attackers. When organisations face a cyberattack, a rapid and thorough incident response is essential to minimise the threat and safeguard the critical information infrastructure. The impact severity, scope, and cost of a cyber security incident increases with every hour it remains unresolved. Time compounds the problem and any delay or inefficiency will only increase the damage and loss from a security breach. According to PwC’s Global State of Information Security Survey® 2016, the average cost of a security breach is 2.5 million USD.

The only way to be prepared for the ever-evolving cyberattacks is to have a contingency plan in place and experts on call. PwC’s Cyber Security Incident Response and Digital Forensics team help you respond quickly to minimise damage and reduce downtime in the event of a cyberattack. Our team will take a comprehensive, reactive, proactive and predictive approach to restore normalcy, identify the root cause and suggest measures to stop the reoccurrence of such
security breaches.
