Digital Forensics and Incident Response

During a breach, it is important to move quickly and contain the threat to minimize the impact by getting to the root cause. However, overlooking evident procedures can limit your ability to help legal or governmental authorities pursue the threat actor.


When we hear about digital forensics, most people imagine a court and lawyers, but this isn’t true in most cases, as it’s much more than legal processes or procedures. Digital Forensics is essentially the process of understanding why, when, and how something happened. This could be done for a criminal investigation, a civil investigation, or just as an internal Incident Response (IR) investigation. Risk Cognizance’s Digital Forensics team will quickly determine the source, cause, and extent of a security breach. Risk Cognizance can also work proactively with your team to better understand your cyber threat preparedness.

Our digital forensics team will thoroughly investigate the incident while keeping you informed of all the outcomes in your case. Computer forensics investigations can be performed during an Incident Response Handling or independently – depending on your needs. Our experts leverage elite cyber threat intelligence to investigate the breach, determine its likely cause, report progress to appropriate parties as required by PCI Security Standards Council, and help you rapidly contain and eradicate the threat from your environment.
