Fujitsu Launches UK Threat Response Service To Help Businesses Quickly Counter Cyber Threats
- New Threat Response set of services to give customers a break-glass response to cyber attacks
- “Threat Ready” package combines reactive threat response capability with proactive cyber consultancy to help customers protect their operations, reputations and bottom line from the risk of cyber attack
- Service to provide critical support to businesses
As part of the service, the Threat Ready package – a premium offering – helps customers prepare for an attack and take a proactive response should one be identified. Customers will get access to a priority-response, 24/7 service as soon as an attack is reported, with real-time updates and consultancy provided by a team of cyber specialists – working from Fujitsu’s Advanced Threat Centre – during and after an attack. The service will initially be launched in the UK market and rolled out across Europe in the coming months.
Rapidly responding to cyber breaches has become an increasingly important issue in recent years; the GDPR now requires companies to notify the relevant supervisory body within 72 hours of a personal data breach, or face severe financial penalties that will impact their bottom line. What’s more, with an increasing number of cyber criminals and other nefarious groups exploiting the Covid-19 pandemic for their own personal gain, quickly mitigating a cyber attack is critical to businesses.
Ciaran Durnin, Threat & Vulnerability Management expert at Fujitsu UK & Ireland, said: “In the current climate, no organisation is safe, whether they are a primary target or part of a supply chain. When a cyber attack hits, companies can ill afford to let breaches go left unchecked for days after. The speed of containment and remediation following a cyber attack has a tangible impact on businesses of all sizes, often leading to serious financial and reputational consequences.”
“While quick, reactive responses post-attack are essential for an affected business, a proactive approach that uses cyber security expertise to build resilience is even better. And this approach is becoming increasingly important as organisations face mounting pressure to prove to the public, regulators, customers and their cyber insurers that their best endeavours have been made to prevent cyber incidents. This increased responsibility to mitigate cyber security risks comes as the World Health Organisation (WHO)
reports a fivefold increase in attacks during Covid-19.”
“In a world where cyber attacks pose one of the biggest threats to a business’ bottom line, companies require tangible solutions; the Threat Ready service will provide organisations with exactly that.”
Other benefits of the Threat Ready option include: Expert testing of Incident Response Scenario through simulation exercises to test if current plans are robust, and priority access to first responder resources within 2 hours and attendance on UK site within 12 hours (Covid-19 permitting).
Fujitsu is also offering two further threat response options: Threat Respond (guaranteed 1st responder contact within 4 hours) and Threat React (1st responder contact based on availability).
