Incident Response Planning Essentials in Ft. Worth

Contact Corptek Solutions today to polish or create your incident response planning in Ft. Worth, TX.  

In the first half of 2019, 3,813 breaches exposed over 4.1 billion records. How do you plan to respond if it happens at your Ft. Worth company?

Incident response planning is one of the most important things you can do to protect your IT network. Corptek Solutions helps you implement and maintain cybersecurity, backup and recovery procedures to cover every contingency. Here are the major milestones in any thoughtful incident response strategy:

  • Prepare. Your Computer Security Incident Response Team Needs to act as a finely tuned machine in the event of a data breach or cyberattack. This doesn’t happen overnight. Corptek Solutions consultants have years — decades in many cases — of experience and can perform this vital function at your Ft. Worth organization. Let us help you create a step-by-step document covering internal and external incidents.
  • Identify. What criteria will activate your CSIRT? this could be something specific such as finding a USB drive or a major incident that triggers your incident response plan. For example, an unusual access attempt might trigger an alert or an unauthorized upload to the cloud storage site could trigger a cybersecurity response.
  • Contain. Minimizing the impact of a threat is always the first priority. There are two types of containment, short and long. Short-term containment demands an immediate response to prevent further damage. This step should include backups of impacted devices or systems so that you can perform a postmortem after the crisis has abated. Long-term containment includes re-establishing systems critical to business operations, minus the loopholes that made it possible for hackers to attack.
  • Eradicate. This step restores all impacted systems. We typically recommend reimaging all systems to remove any traces of the security risk. This step should document the disk cloning software that you will use as well as the details on the images that will be restored. Additionally, this step includes updates to your security that prevent a recurrence of the threat.
  • Recover. In this step, we work with your internal IT team to copy all system backups into production, following verification that they are free of viruses and other malware.
  • Forensic post-mortem. A thorough review of the documentation prepares your CSIRT for future potential threats. This should include an evaluation of things you did right and things you can improve upon to keep your network and sensitive data secure.

Who Owns Incident Response Planning?

If you contract with Corptek Solutions, our resources take the lead on incident response planning for your Ft. Worth, TX, company. Ultimately, your internal leadership owns responsibility for what happens to your data. That’s why we work with your leadership to ensure that you have a firm grasp of the implemented incident response strategy.

Whether you outsource or hire in-house resources, your CSIRT should include the following roles:

  • Incident Response Manager who oversees the Incident Response plan.
  • Security Analysts who work to neutralize threats and contain security incidents.
  • Threat Researchers who provide intelligence and context to an active security incident.

The Department of Homeland Security also assists organizations impacted by cyberattacks.

“When cyber incidents occur, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides assistance to potentially impacted entities, analyzes the potential impact across critical infrastructure, investigate those responsible in conjunction with law enforcement partners, and coordinates the national response to significant cyber incidents,” according to CISA.

What a difference! Corptek came in and did a great job at transitioning us to their software! There was minimal downtime and they made the process seamless. Our server crashed less than a week after moving over and they were able to get us back up and running without any disruption to our daily activities. I highly recommend them!

On 2/15/22 our IT company that we have used for a while and have been paying to back up our data and service our network was working on my business laptop. Long story short, they crashed my computer, blue screen of death, bit key encrypted the whole works.This was devastating for me because once this happened they discovered that they did not back our system up and flat out told me that they could not fix it. All of my business records for over 6 years were gone, my sons pictures of him being a baby, our wedding pictures, all of my quick books, everything was gone!!!! To say I panicked and had a major anxiety attack is mild to what I went through! After trying for hours to find someone to help me I received a message from a friend out of the blue and she asked me how my day was going and I told her. She said I have a great IT guy, Mr. Neil and that she would give me his number.I called Mr. Neil first thing in the morning. Mr.Neil made room in his personal schedule because all of his employees had a full schedule.I was planning on hearing the worst that they wouldn’t be able to save my computer and all was lost. However, I kept praying and hoping that it could be saved.Mr. Neil is beyond amazing. He jumped right in and saved my data, my pictures, everything!!!!!! It was like an albatross was lifted off of my neck as soon as he said he was able to start retrieving my data. He is a Rockstar with computers!!!!He has the best customer service that I can honestly say I have received in over a decade. He even allowed me to bring my son with me to his office so I didn’t have to find daycare! His whole staff was welcoming and comforting! If you need IT service for your business please call this company!!!

I don't normally leave reviews not unless they are really good or really bad. I had been in the business for almost 20 years and we always need computers and IT service. I can honestly say that Corptek Solutions is the one that is rated on top of my list. They do exceptional work and they know their stuff. They are quick to help and resolve our IT issues. This company has qualified IT techs unlike others that hire techs that are no sure of how to work issues. These guys are the real deal!For our employees they are the best thing that happened to us in a long time. Great job Jason and Neil!

We recently started working with Neil and Jason after having a terrible experience with a prior IT company. They have been a true blessing! They are so easy to work with and their knowledge is outstanding! They jumped right in and got the business back up and secure again. They will be installing a new server for us and I am very excited to be able to sit back and not worry about whether it's going to be done correctly or not. They also pointed out several security issues that the prior company never mentioned. I look forward to our continued business with them! Thanks again guys!
