It isn’t a matter of “if” or “when”, but as your company is being hacked, how can organizations respond to and manage the cyberthreats landscape. As Brian Krebs, one of the world’s leading cybersecurity journalists, said at a recent event “everything gets hacked!”, with businesses and IT professionals needing to start accepting the “depressing reality”. The proliferation of data breaches continues to surge. According to Cybersecurity Ventures, a data breach occurs every 14 seconds, down from every 40 seconds in 2016 and by 2021 will occur every 11 seconds.
With the current pandemic, the problems have not gone away for many organizations and IT departments, rather the contrary, they have escalated. No organization is exempt from the threat. Not even the World Health Organization (WHO). According to Flavio Aggio, Chief Information Security Officer, reports that cyberattacks on it (the WHO) have doubled in recent weeks including an attempt to steal passwords belonging to WHO agency staff.¹
Moreover, cybercriminals are taking advantage of the opportunity to scam, hack and cause chaos across the digital landscape. There has never been a time like the present for organizations to analyse their information resilience across areas such as cybersecurity, information management and privacy, security awareness programmes and compliance with regulatory requirement.
So, what should organizations do if they have a data breach?
Here are six important stages of a data security or data privacy breach. This will help enable incident response teams to proactively detect, manage and provide remediation to enhance their state of information resilience.
- Preparing for a data breach: Have you put the right governance structure in place, with the correct resources and tool sets?
- Identifying a data breach: Can your team respond to security alerts and determine if there has been a potential incident and ultimately a data breach?
- Containing and eradicating a breach: Are there plans in place with the right resources to stop a data breach?
- Recovering from a breach: How quickly can you restore operations to business-as-usual?
- Post incident review: Are you systematically reviewing and identifying improvements from each incident?
- Lessons learnt from a breach: Are you successfully implementing lessons learnt across the business?
Our team of trusted advisors can support your organization’s capabilities to respond to breaches at any time and find out now how we can help keep your organization secure, safe and sustainable during these vulnerable times.

Frequently Asked Questions from our Customers
Yes we can, we can assist you with any of the accreditation featured on our website. We have a 100% record of securing any of the accreditation in the first audit for all our customers for the last 13 years.
More to the point, I ask clients how quickly can you start. We can have a consultant working on your accreditation within the hour if you are ready. The only things that take time are the audit dates, these are issued to the client by the certification body so it is out of our control.
This depends on how much the client has in place already. The more they have, the easier it becomes to work on their accreditation. The gap analysis that we carry out is free of charge and afterwards will give you an exact fixed price.
The fixed price will include the following –
- Carry out all the work ( creating documents & processes tailored to your company )
- Attend the audit ( as your expert consultant ) or make the desktop submission.
- Make any corrections that the auditor may highlight to ensure that you obtain your accreditation the first audit.
Initially, we need to talk to you to carry out the free gap analysis. Afterwards, we would require you to forward all the relevant documents. After that, we can complete the work with the minimum of your input, leaving you to concentrate on doing what you do best for the company.
Yes! Let us Manage your Accreditations with Ongoing Support and Maintenance. With us managing your accreditations, your team can then focus on business growth and development.
