Incident Handler

The threat of cybercrime is the new reality and major concern for enterprises worldwide. Unfortunately, most organizations, don’t have a proactive approach to information security. Alarmingly, 76% of organizations globally do not have an Incident Response plan, making it difficult for them to reliably identify, contain and recover from a cyber-attack. An incident response plan prepares enterprises for both known and unknown threats.
