NOTE: If you are currently experiencing a security breach, U.S. Toll-free: 800-810-1885 for immediate assistance.
Your data is a vital asset and knowing where your critical data resides can save you up to 30 percent in costs, associated with searching for this data, should a breach occur.
To focus on preparedness and response, Sword & Shield Enterprise Security designed the Rapid Response Shield™. This package provides our customers with a sensitive data usage and security policy review and a dedicated team for incident response, electronic discovery, and digital forensics support. Part of this response includes preparation for the preservation, collection and production of electronic data for litigation purposes.
While information security has traditionally focused on Internet threats and hackers, many organizations are still unprepared—especially when it comes to data breaches caused by trusted insiders. Whether data threats are accidental or malicious, you must be ready to respond when an incident occurs.
Sensitive Data Discovery
|Initiate a Case|
|Don’t Attempt Your Own Investigation|
|Federal Rules of Civil Procedure|
Knowing where sensitive data is stored and how it is used is the essence of preparedness. And in most cases the data is not where you think it is. Sword & Shield analysts will scan the network to pinpoint sources of confidential data, as well as additional subsets, copies, and exports of that data identified in files and databases containing payment card information, customer data, personally identifying information, financial data and corporate intellectual property.
eDiscovery Readiness Plan
Sword & Shield will develop an eDiscovery Readiness Plan. This plan will consist of litigation-specific data maps with data classifications for “data reasonably accessible” and “data not reasonably accessible” according to Rule 26(f) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Sword & Shield will also develop documented litigation response procedures for identifying and preserving electronically stored information.
Security Incident Response Plan
Sword & Shield will develop customized incident response plans and documented procedures for collecting critical information that we will analyze to determine the details of the incident. Sword & Shield will also provide a “Rapid Response” kit that includes hardware, software, and procedures you will need to perform preservation. You can immediately send this information to our experts electronically. The experts can then begin analyzing the potential breach information before arriving on site. The Rapid Response toolkit enables clients to create their own forensic images of data on computers and other devices and ship it to Sword & Shield’s secure forensic lab for analysis. Our custom toolkit can save you time and money during the data restoration and collection process.
Sword & Shield will provide you with a predetermined amount of prepaid consulting hours for incident response, digital forensics, and eDiscovery services. These prepaid consulting hours are to be used within 12 months from the initial date of the contract. If the customer exhausts the predetermined amount of consulting hours before the contract expires, the customer may still receive, upon request, incident response, digital forensics, and eDiscovery services consulting at the same 20 percent discounted rate.
Real Success Story
A large national retailer experienced a significant data breach and called upon Sword & Shield to identify what data was compromised and contain any damage as a result of this breach. Sword & Shield was able to identify this breach, contain the damage and classify their data to assist in meeting both PCI and HIPAA compliance regulations.
In addition, we provided the company a Rapid Response Shield™ solution to reduce the cost of another incident response. Sword & Shield also provided the company with a litigation response solution that determined the locations of their data and created a step-by-step litigation response. We bundled this solution with our eDiscovery Readiness Plan to provide expert consulting at a reduced rate.
