When a cyber breach goes uncontained, it can cost an organization millions in lost revenue, brand erosion, litigation exposure, regulatory fines and customer claims.
Responding to a cyber incident without the specialized expertise and best practices that only an experienced external response team provides often results in slower recovery that ultimately increases the total cost to the company.
Effective breach response is a highly complex undertaking requiring expertise across multiple disciplines — and organizations need to act fast. Response is not just about finding, containing and mitigating a breach. The response team needs to be litigation savvy and possess the know how to preserve the integrity of forensic evidence required down the road. Serious breaches demand even more specialized skills, often requiring collaboration across external stakeholders, regulators, and board members. Without expert support, many organizations lack the processes and technology needed to respond effectively to a cyber breach.

And, unique to Stroz Friedberg and Aon, we help expedite capital via claims preparation and ensure that potential losses are properly tracked, maximizing coverage and cost recuperation.
