Government Issued Warning: Large scale cyber campaign targeting Australian public and private sector
Developing a strong presence on the internet is critical to the growth of any online business. Breaches in online security can happen and in our experience it is the way that it is handled rather than the breach itself that affects customer confidence.
From the initial attack through to ongoing communications with stakeholders, our team work closely with firms to evaluate and understand the specific issues. We advise on the immediate response to data breaches and cyber threats including the notification of customers, restoration of data and quantification of loss.
We are here to provide support to enable you to understand, successfully tackle and put in place the measures to safeguard your data in future. With experience of handling over 1000 data breach and privacy incidents, our team is equipped to handle your claim. With an established global network of IT professionals, we can provide you with assistance you require, wherever you are in the world.
