Global Digital Forensics Announces "E-DEFENSE" for US Corporations to Step Up Response to Cyber Threats
New York, NY, April 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Global Digital Forensics Announces "E-DEFENSE." It is nearly impossible in this digital age to get through a day without generating Electronically Stored Information (ESI) along the way. For a business, data collected from existing and potential clients can be an invaluable part of a successful business plan. For our part as clients and consumers, we share digital bits and pieces of ourselves with companies we trust to make our own lives a little less complicated. But, what happens when all those binary goodies that are so painstakingly collected and stored land in the wrong hands?
Massive data breaches have been making national news headlines a lot lately. Most recently, in one of the largest data breaches in US history, a computer hacker breached the system at Epsilon, an online marketing unit of Alliance Data Systems Corp, leaving even goliath companies like Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase & Co, Target, Capital One, Walgreens, Best Buy, the Home Shopping Network and the Hilton and Marriott Hotel chains, to name a few, scrambling to assess the damage and start notifying their clients whose data had been compromised.
Epsilon is by far not an isolated incident. According to privacyrights.org's constantly updated Chronology of Data Breaches, a collection of reported data breaches since 2005 which they obtain from the Open Security Foundation list-serve, Databreaches.net, PHI Privacy and NAID, there have been at least 521,173,105 records breached since they started keeping track. And that's a low number, it includes only "reported" US breaches and many of the reported breaches don't have exact figures reported and are therefore are not even included in the tally. To give that number some scope, the entire population of the US was 308,400,408 according to the 2010 US Census results.
Enter Global Digital Forensics’ E-DEFENSE system, a prevention-inclusive rapid response program that finally addresses both sides of the coin concerning costly data breaches, putting Proactive Breach Prevention Solutions And lightning fast Crisis Response Teams together under the same roof for your continued success and peace of mind. Best of all, GDF's vast experience in the digital marketplace enables them to flat rate each project, making adhering to corporate budgets less of a shell game.
Global Digital Forensics' Proactive Breach Prevention Solutions afford companies of all sizes the ability to take a proactive approach in dealing with potential data breaches, greatly increasing the chances breaches will be prevented before they occur by having highly skilled and experienced professionals design a tailor-made incident response plan, draft internal policy, ensure regulatory compliance and put everything businesses need in place for an affordable fixed cost.
Joe Caruso, CEO of Global Digital Forensics, has been on the front lines responding to cyber intrusions for some of the biggest companies in the world. He sums up the need for an E-DEFENSE system like this, “outside of being completely severed from the digital world at large, for any computerized business, the stark reality is not if a compromise will occur, but when. Should the unthinkable occur and your system is breached, our Global Crisis Response Teams of top-notch, certified computer forensic specialists will respond in a matter of hours, not days or weeks, to identify how and when the breach occurred, immediately take steps to contain the damage and make the financial aftermath as painless as humanly possible.”
Caruso and his GDF teams are so confident their E-DEFENSE system can maximize your security posture, aid you with regulatory compliance, give you peace of mind, and do it all much more affordably than you probably think, for a limited time as part of the E-DEFENSE launch, GDF will be offering a free one hour consultation with a specialist to answer all of your questions and get started.
Staying consistent with their ongoing efforts to keep a finger on the pulse of today’s digital business community, share some insight and receive valuable feedback, on Thursday May 12th, GDF will also be hosting an informative live webinar on Data Breaches – Prevention through Crisis Response.
