Did you know Withum mitigated and continues to mitigate several massive data breaches globally from small-to-medium-sized businesses to global enterprise-class environments? Did you know that Withum has identified and assisted in the apprehension of over 65+ cybercriminals to date, minimized and eliminated regulatory and potential legal sanctions related to network intrusions?

Even if you have been a victim of a data breach, you need to understand multi-dimensional concerns, explore several options, develop the best plan of action, and put objective and genuine global expertise to use. Let Withum’s experts assist in separating the ‘wheat from the chaff’, provide valuable information, reduce potentially costly impacts, and provide substantive results.

Did you know that data breaches are not just caused by external intruders? The FBI Reports more data breaches from disgruntled employees. Insider attacks continue to be a very real and common threat to organizations. These internally caused incidents usually occur on or around the time an employee or vendor left their employer. A lack of security expertise, organizational ‘group think’, knowingly and/or unknowingly ignoring data leakage, improper security controls, and/or failing to head warnings is a recipe for major disasters. In these types of environments, it’s not a question of ‘if’ it will happen; but ‘when’ a major incident will happen. Disgruntled Employees, Vendors, and External Intruders used to access to company data for the following summary reasons:

  • Steal business intellectual property, trade secret, confidential information, and/or personally identifiable information (“PII Data”)
  • Steal software and passwords
  • Destroy important data
  • Hold business hostage
  • Take Economic Advantage of Mergers, Acquisitions, and Trading
  • Provide Victim Data to Adversaries or Competitors
  • Make fraudulent purchases using company or customer data
  • Publicly embarrass employers, executives, and business clients
  • And much more.

The FBI warns that increased use of cloud computing means that employees are now better able to steal, delete, and manipulate a company’s data. Simply put, an insider data breach is easier to pull off now than it ever was before.

Let Withum assist in not only identifying points of compromise; but also assist in simultaneous gathering and appropriately preserving forensic evidence in the event of an incident, as well as remediating an environment, as necessary, and in parallel in order to maximize your return on your security investment.

Regardless of whether a data breach is externally or internally caused, they are preventable, there are always indicators prior to major incidents, and evidence always exists. Proactive mitigation of cyber risk is far less costly than just being reactive.

Don’t wait, let Withum diagnosis your systems and incidents today. Contact us for a free consultation.
