Contain & Recover from Cyber Attacks

When you're experiencing a cyber attack, time is of the essence. Kivu's Incident Response services help organizations rapidly respond and eradicate attacks so you can quickly return to business as usual. We'll guide you through the attack lifecycle: from responding to and containing active attacks, to post-incident analysis to determine root cause, through litigation and a successful legal outcome.

A forensics-first, rapid-response service built with cyber insurability in mind. When every minute counts.

Kivu helps you quickly analyze the situation and focus on both containing and recovering from incidents.  Know who was involved, what happened, when things happened, where it happened and why it happened. We’ll determine what data, if any, was accessed by the threat actor. Our experts are on the case immediately, providing assistance remotely or on-site if warranted. By involving Kivu early in an attack, we can limit the extent of the damage. So you can move forward faster.

Our unique Incident Response methodology uses patented technology combined with deep subject matter expertise to rapidly collect data, preserve it, remotely analyze it, and stop the threat.

First things first: Our Incident Response service is available 24/7.

Proprietary, enterprise-class remote data collection technology speeds efficient analysis of your incident. Large corporate networks can be scanned in less than 60 minutes. No software installation or calibration is required. No on-site personnel is needed, lowering incident response costs.  Certified analysts with experience across all systems perform data analytics and reporting.

Our Investigative and Forensics methodology enables identification of affected systems, collection and preservation of data, rapid forensic analysis, and established processes to assist you in remediating your environments.  We work closely with law firms to provide defensible data collection, preservation and analysis of digital evidence from Day One.

Kivu’s Digital Forensics & Incident Response team will be on-site to help you restore, rebuild, recover, and then re-envision after a cyber incident or business disruption.  Expert project and personnel management by Kivu case handlers ensure that your internal resources are leveraged to the max and that all stakeholders work in a coordinated fashion.

DFIR analysts are highly skilled, with certifications that include Certified Forensic Computer Examiner (CFCE), EnCase® Certified Examiner, CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional), Certified Protection Professional (CPP), and Certified Fraud Examiners (GCFE, EnCE, and CFE). Many analysts come from law enforcement backgrounds. Our in-house teams have testified as experts in US State and Federal courts and regularly provide counsel with clear and useful information.
