HP has announced a new set of security services that help organizations respond to, remediate and mitigate the impact of security breaches as they occur.
Security breaches are increasingly disruptive to organizations and can significantly damage their reputation and destroy shareholder value. The cost implications of these breaches can be huge and often expose organizations to litigation, HP said in a statement.
According to a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach event in the United States costs an organization US$8.9 million, the company added.
The HP Security Breach Management Solution combines HP’s services expertise with security intelligence software to offer clients a comprehensive approach to protect what matters most to their organizations.
It provides clients with the security intelligence to more quickly identify a breach and react to it, as well as minimize its impact and reduce ongoing exposure from vulnerabilities.
“It’s nearly impossible for organizations to prevent a breach, but they can take control of how they respond,” said Lim Bee Wah (pic), country general manager, Enterprise Services, HP Malaysia.
“Combining HP’s portfolio of services and software, the HP Breach Management Solution arms clients with the tools and resources to monitor, manage and respond to breaches head on, minimizing their impact while readying for the next attack.”
The solution features the new HP Forensic Readiness Service, which helps clients get ahead of attacks before they occur, the company claimed. Leveraging the knowledge of experienced HP consultants, the service helps organizations proactively establish policies and procedures surrounding forensic investigations.
As a result, clients are equipped with the resources to quickly gather the best-quality digital evidence in the event of an attack and can apply these policies and procedures to gather and document evidence when the next attack occurs.
The HP Security Breach Management Solution features services that span the entire security life cycle, ranging from proactive planning and risk management strategies to immediate response measures.
Together, these offerings provide a holistic approach to breach management and enable clients to reduce security-related costs, gain greater control of the situation and lower their exposure to risk, HP claimed.
The HP Security Breach Management Solution is a set of services than can be purchased separately. All services are, or will soon be, available worldwide, and pricing is based on consultancy hours.
