In the event of a data breach, it is crucial that proper procedures be followed to contain and mitigate damage while preserving evidence and complying with law enforcement requests. The computer forensic investigators at Ingalls Information Security provide containment services and data forensic analysis to organizations that are impacted by data breaches.
It is critical to ensure evidence is handled with care and to prevent it from being tampered with. Chain of custody is crucial to maintaining reliability and reducing the potential for evidence to be rejected in the case of litigation. Preserving evidence is also crucial to a successful incident response and analysis.
Ingalls Information Security has trained forensic computer analysts, as well as legal and law enforcement specialists, who will ensure the chain of custody is maintained throughout the entire incident response process. We can quickly capture the electronic information needed to conduct proper data forensics, and we apply sound methods that avoid damaging evidence while providing a clear picture and history of an incident.
Data preservation is key to both incident response and to the pursuit of legal remedies and Ingalls Information Security can handle the task for you.

Rely on Ingalls Information Security of Alexandria, LA for an emergency response to your cyber security threat.
We perform Incident Response in four stages:
- Strategy: During this phase, we determine the scope of the breach and thoroughly investigate the environment in which the breach occurred. Based on the data, we develop a strategy to contain, eradicate and fix the site to prevent future breaches.
- Containment: During the Containment phase, we limit the amount of damage caused by the attack and work to isolate the breach to the affected system.
- Eradication: We get to the root cause of the breach. Once uncovered, we work to expel the attacker from the environment and keep them from coming back.
- Remediation: Once we get the attacker out and the damage resolved, we address the weakness that allowed the attacker to get into the environment in the first place.
Once Incident Response is complete, the security posture is improved. While our clients no longer require constant guarding, we recommend implementing long-term security sustainment practices.
Our cyber security emergency response team in Alexandria, LA works under attorney-client privilege with companies who have identified a security breach. If you have been notified of a breach by regulators, clients or partners, we recommend retaining legal counsel and contacting us to start the Incident Response process.

We arm attorneys with the documentation and briefs needed to explain what happened and why it will not happen again.
