Breach Preparedness

Let our industry-leading security experts help you better prepare for, respond to and recover from breaches

Breaches happen. We can help you be ready for them. Our Breach Preparedness services are designed to assess and strengthen your ability to detect, react to, and contain advanced attacks with speed, efficiency, and scale.

FireEye Mandiant consultants can test how well you respond to breaches, provide cost-effective suggestions for improvement, help you design a robust security operations program, and work with you to build a cyber defense center or SOC. You can even have a team of expert first-responders on call that will spring into action as soon as a breach is suspected.

With our Breach Preparedness services you can be confident that your organization has what it takes to quickly catch attackers and prevent breaches from turning into catastrophes.
