Having a team on standby to help with every aspect of a security event is more than a valuable proposition for many organizations, it’s an absolute must. The peace of mind that comes along with a highly skilled team that is ready to help when a cyber-attack strikes can help you focus more on growing your business rather than worrying about it.

We recently sat down with Bob Strohm from our CYDERES team to talk a little bit more about our Security Incident Response Team, or SIRT, which is included in our more comprehensive Security-as-a-Service offerings, but also offered as a standalone service.

Our Security Incident Response Team is made up of world-class professionals that have robust experience seamlessly working with organizations of varying sizes and helping them navigate the stressful circumstances that come with cyberattacks.

We asked Bob a couple of questions to highlight some core features of our SIRT offering and will continue to go behind the scenes to showcase all that this vital piece of our CYDERES organization does for our customers.

Stay tuned as we continue our interview series with leaders of the various offerings across our organization to highlight how we can help lead your organization to a more secure future.

Now, let’s dive into our interview with Bob.

Hi, Bob. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us today. Tell us about what you do at Fishtech Group.

I’m Bob Strohm and I am a Customer Success Manager with CYDERES, the Security as a Service group of Fishtech. I work with customers that come to us with a potential breach and assist in navigating their response.

Recently, we have been re-visiting our various offerings throughout the Fishtech Group organization, but particularly in CYDERES. Today we’re going to be talking about our CYDERES Security Incident Response Team, or SIRT. Could you give us a brief overview of our CYDERES Security Incident Response Team Offering?
With our Security Incident Response Team, we have a team of responders waiting to assist the customer with the incident on hand. At a predetermined discounted rate, our responders will act like an extension of your own team to provide services and intelligence at a moment’s notice.

With a wide variety of experience and background, our team can provide the expertise any organization needs during the stressful times.

What are some of the solutions provided by our Security Incident Response Team?

As already mentioned, our SIRT service will provide on demand response, but we also provide organizations so much more. With our “Use It, Don’t Lose it Policy”, any of the funds not utilized during the life of the retainer can be repurposed for any number of services.

Some of these services include Tabletop Exercises, Incident Response Plan Development and Review, Forensic Analysis or our Red Team as a Service for Penetration Test. We also have the flexibility to engage professional services within the larger Fishtech Group.

So, now that we have hit on some of our SIRT solutions, what are some examples of security incidents?

Of course, there’s the usual malware, ransomware, network intrusion, DDoS attack, hacked website, or other breach, but we also see company insiders who steal confidential data. The best preparation is a proactive approach that not only builds security maturity throughout an organization, but also has a response team prepared to handle every aspect of a security breach.

What would we recommend for organizations looking to take the first step in navigating an incident response plan?

There’s no need to reinvent the wheel, or try to do it all in-house, diverting resources from teams focused on building the business. At CYDERES, we bring a wealth of experience in building robust incident response programs that your organization can leverage to help you avoid common pitfalls and get peace of mind that you are as prepared as possible.

We can help you assess your risk matrix, and tailor a SIRT strategy for your organization and your use cases. At the end of the day, it’s about how quickly you can identify, contain, eradicate, and recover from a security incident.

CYDERES is proud to partner with organizations by providing the people, process, and technology to manage cybersecurity risks, detect threats, and respond to security incidents in real-time.
