Incident Response

< Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO) / >



So a threat actor has successfully penetrated your network and delivered an attack, what’s next? It’s all about reducing the impact. With our incident response experts ready on the front lines, we can ensure your sensitive data and production environments are quickly restored to keep services online and maintain business operations.


Incident Response

Once a threat actor has penetrated your defenses and infiltrated your critical systems, the new objective becomes cybersecurity risk management through damage control. We help remediate incidents, take back control, and restore your operations so you can confidently stay on the path toward mission success.

Incident reporting

By tracking and reporting known cyber attacks, we can accurately categorize incidents to navigate the best course of action. Using automated tools and our experience in attack remediation, we gain a deep understanding of each incident to efficiently report and communicate with relevant stakeholders.

Attack isolation

To reduce the impact of a cyber incident on your program’s mission, we deploy countermeasures to prevent a threat actor from moving laterally through your network and keep them away from your key assets. Once the threat is pinpointed, our team secludes the incident from other operational areas and network segments.

Incident remediation

When it comes to cyber attacks targeting your critical data and assets, time is of the essence. Once identified, our incident response team works proactively to quickly remove cyber threats so you can continue business operations and focus exclusively on your program’s mission.

Operations restoration

To prevent a long-term impact on your mission, it’s vital to contain and limit post-attack damage. We give you the confidence to expeditiously recover and return to normal operations.

Limiting the impact of an incident on your mission and restoring operations for ALL attacks

Our BreakPoint Labs team of experts doesn’t shy away from a cyber attack. We are response-ready to address all types of incidents targeting any industry. Our frontline experience – from National Security events to boutique law firm breaches – enables us to quickly remediate incidents and keep operations running for both simple and complex environments.

Incident response

Data breach retrieval

Data breaches can spiral into severe incidents that comprise an agency or business’s reputation while risking losing information vital to a mission. Whether it’s intellectual property, trade secrets, personally identifiable information (PII),protected health information (PHI), or other sensitive types of data, we’re here for the entire recovery process.

Intellectual property theft recovery

Your trade secrets, proprietary data, and information on recent innovations should be only yours to keep. As part of robust incident response capabilities, we ensure that systems hosting sensitive information get swiftly restored after a breach with minimal recovery time and costs.

Ransomware attack mitigation

Financially-motivated attacks through ransomware and extortion put you in a challenging position of trying to resolve an incident quickly without adhering to a cybercriminal’s demands. Our experts have handled ransomware threats first-hand and know how to navigate the incident carefully to remove the adversary without compromising sensitive data.

Destructive attack restoration

Threat actors looking to take down your systems using denial-of-service (DoS) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks simply want to disrupt your operations. We strategically counter destructive attacks by thwarting activity and building resiliency within systems and network infrastructure.


Real experience serving on the front lines of incident response missions


Remediating the SolarWinds compromise

In 2020, thousands of enterprises and U.S. government agencies were compromised due to a SolarWinds exploit that gave hackers access to its network traffic management system and allowed them to deploy malware across various customer environments. We served on the front lines implementing the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Emergency Directive-21-01 which required actions to remove adversary access and restore systems.

Resolving the Pulse Secure Connect incident

During the Summer of 2020, numerous companies and government agencies were compromised after threat actors installed malware on many Pulse Secure Connect products. This prompted emergency remediation directives by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), which we proudly and expeditiously applied for our U.S. government and enterprise clients.

Patching Apache Log4J vulnerabilities

When a known security vulnerability within the Log4j open-source activity logging tool was discovered and made public, millions of exploitations occurred that allowed hackers to inject malicious code and compromise the entire library. With our Nation’s critical infrastructure at risk, we partnered with the U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) and Joint Force Headquarters-DoD Information Networks (JFHQ-DODIN) to quickly implement their required actions and remediate consequences of the incident.

Early Awardee of GSA Schedule contract for incident response

Supporting the Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP) directed by the U.S. President, BreakPoint Labs was one of the first companies approved by the General Services Administration (GSA) and awarded its Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) contract. As part of the scope of work, we’ve served agencies in the Federal government and Department of Defense (DoD)providing cyber threat intelligence and incident response services.
