FACT: *”Only 37% of organizations have a cyber incident response plan.”

Cyber Security

A cyberattack can shut down a business’s operations for days, even weeks. Backup systems, business applications and important data sets can be compromised and be of little value in the response and recovery phases of the disaster. The aftermath of a cyberattack can wreak havoc on the company’s reputation and have unforeseen legal implications and may even close the doors of your organization for good.

At Apex, we take a business first approach to security by utilizing a process to identify, detect, protect, respond and recover from a cyberattack. Today, we cannot guarantee 100% protection from an attack, incident or breach. We can guarantee that we can align business technology to security standards to attain near perfect protection and recovery capabilities. Apex will work with your senior management, legal department and functional area teams and provide an audit of your risks, security gaps and current response plan as part of our cyber security services. Businesses require what we refer to as CIA – Confidentiality, Integrity & Availability of Data and Applications to run their operations.

As part of our strategic planning, we will collaborate with your teams to identify vulnerabilities and create a proactive, tactical plan that is in compliance with best practices. We will work with your management team to establish a response plan to mitigate risks and business interruption should an incident occur. With our response plan in place, we will activate our reactive tactical “Red Teams” to respond and recover within the established recovery time objectives (RTOs).
