IT emergency
response services

Quickly respond to and recover from
IT security breaches

IT security breaches can have devastating consequences for any business, resulting in operational disruption, data leakage, brand and reputation damage, and regulatory complications. IT security breach prevention and response has never been more important.

Prevention starts with an incident response plan, mock exercises to test the plan, and an active threat assessment. IBM's IT emergency response services provide a methodology designed to help you manage incident response across multiple stages including prevention, intelligence gathering, containment, eradication, recovery, and compliance.

Our highly skilled consultants conduct preemptive incident preparation, data preservation, and in-depth data analysis, and in the event of a security breach, can be deployed within 24 hours.
