Intervening quickly in an IT incident and taking countermeasures can greatly mitigate the impact of cyberattacks

Besides the fast detection of an attack, professional and comprehensive countermeasures are crucial to keep the damage low, to prevent the spread to further network segments, geographical regions, plants, sites, servers. E.g. encryption can often be detected, sometimes the alerts are not available (here an EDR/XDR or SIEM solution would be helpful) or the assessment of the incidents is not done correctly (internally or via an MDR or SOC service). If the attack is detected, the fast reaction is important to implement the restart quickly in parallel but also to do the forensics to trace the attack (partly in cooperation with authorities, etc.).

An Incident Response Retainer, is typically a contract with an incident response service provider and includes a contractually assured support (also called a “retainer”) in the event of a cyberattack. This assures the customer of prioritized support in the event of an emergency and enables a faster response with the support of the experts – who already know the company and thus quickly assist with containment (remote and on-site), forensics and restart. The contract typically describes, in addition to an annual hourly volume (also extendable in the event of an emergency), the corresponding service level agreements (SLA) for accessibility (usually 24/7 hotline), start of remote support (e.g. after 4 most cases, an agreement is also made that unused hours can be used for proactive services in the following year (e.g. assessments, penetration tests, training)
