Cyber Security, Investigations & Forensics

Cyber Risk Services
Dark Sky Defense®

Risk Assessment and Management:

VIDOCQ Cyber™ risk services begin with assessing the current level of security. Our Dark Sky Defense® program helps identify vulnerabilities in systems and processes, analyzing how these weaknesses could be exploited. This assessment leads to the development of strategies to manage and mitigate these risks.

Implementation of Security Measures:

Based on the risk assessment, VIDOCQ cyber risk services help implement robust security measures. This includes firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and encryption technologies to protect sensitive data. They also ensure that these measures are up-to-date and capable of countering current cyber threats.

Compliance and Regulatory Guidance:

For companies, especially those in regulated industries, cyber risk services provide guidance on compliance with legal and regulatory requirements related to data protection and privacy. This is crucial for avoiding legal repercussions and maintaining customer trust.

Employee Training and Awareness:

Human error is a significant factor in many cyber breaches. VIDOCQ Cyber risk services often include training programs for employees, teaching them about common cyber threats like phishing and how to avoid them.

Incident Response Planning:

We assist in developing an incident response plan, which is crucial for minimizing damage in the event of a cyber attack. This includes establishing a response team, defining roles, and creating communication plans.

Data Recovery and Business Continuity:

In the event of a data breach or cyber attack, cyber risk services help in the recovery of lost data and ensure that business operations can continue with minimal disruption.

Ongoing Monitoring and Support:

Cyber security is not a one-time task. Cyber risk services often provide ongoing monitoring of networks and systems to detect and respond to threats in real-time, as well as regular updates to security protocols.

Customized Solutions:

Every client or company has unique needs and risks. Cyber risk services offer tailored solutions that fit specific requirements, whether it's a small private client or a large corporation.

Third-Party Vendor Management:

Many cyber risks come from third-party vendors. Cyber risk services can assess the security protocols of these vendors and ensure that they meet the company's security standards. This is especially important for companies that share sensitive data with external partners.

Reputation Management:

In the event of a cyber incident, a company's reputation can be significantly damaged. Cyber risk services include crisis management and communication strategies to mitigate reputational harm and maintain customer trust.

Forensic Analysis:

If a breach occurs, cyber risk services provide forensic analysis to understand how the breach happened, the extent of the data affected, and ways to prevent similar incidents in the future. This analysis is critical for improving security measures and responding effectively.

Technology Advisory:

With the rapid evolution of technology, staying ahead of the curve is essential. Cyber risk services often include technology advisory, recommending the latest tools and technologies to enhance cyber defenses.

Regulatory Update and Adaptation:

As regulations change, particularly in the rapidly evolving field of cyber security, cyber risk services help clients stay compliant. They provide updates on new regulations and assist in adapting processes and systems accordingly.

Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Scans:

Regular penetration testing and vulnerability scans are conducted to identify and address security weaknesses before attackers can exploit them. This proactive approach is crucial for maintaining strong cyber defenses.

Strategic Security Planning:

Beyond immediate threats, cyber risk services assist in long-term strategic planning for cyber security. This includes anticipating future risks, planning for expansion or technological upgrades, and ensuring that the security strategy evolves with the business.

In summary, cyber risk services offer a comprehensive approach to managing and mitigating cyber risks. They provide essential support in protecting against, preparing for, and responding to cyber threats, which is increasingly important in our digital and interconnected world.
