Benefits and key features

A cyber threat to a computer system can occur two ways: When the system has been accessed by someone without the user's permission or when the system has been infected with malware, which in turn could compromise the data on the computer. Our services include:

  • Forensics: Tools are used to determine the method of the attack and its target within the file system.
  • Intrusion Analysis: Security technicians determine if sensitive data could have been disclosed or stolen.
  • Notification: IS&T contacts the Data Incident Response Team (DIRT) if necessary. Some types of data exposure require notification to affected parties.
  • Restoration: Your system is restored to a clean, workable condition after it has been scrubbed of malware.
