Data Breaches Happen. It's What You Do Next That Matters Most.
Even with the best controls in place, a security incident can still happen. Whether you’ve got clear indication of impact to your organization due to a data breach, or you suspect that unauthorized access has occurred, we’re here to help.
Ingalls has spent the last decade guiding our breach clients from crisis to business continuity. Our primary goal is to get our clients back to the day before the incident occurred, as quickly as possible. We know that the faster we can return our clients to normal, the less impactful a breach will be.
Our data breach investigations are performed by digital forensics experts with decades of combined experience solving complex cybersecurity incidents. We deploy a suite of tools using a process that follows the National Institute of Standards (NIST) guidelines for Incident Response, so that we can quickly contain, investigate, and eradicate any attacker presence that we discover in our client’s environment.

We Perform Incident Response in 4 Stages
Regardless of the amount of preparation, any organization can expect to be disrupted until an incident has been investigated, contained, and remediated. Even after these critical steps have occurred, continuity issues can remain while the organization researches and prepares to notify affected stakeholders in order to comply with State, Federal, and industry specific notification requirements. This makes proper investigation and reporting of the incident a critical factor in how quickly an organization can recover and notify stakeholders appropriately.
Stage 1: Initial Response & Triage
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.
Stage 2: 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.
Stage 3: Investigation
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.
Stage 4: 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.
