Cyber Investigations Service Launched

20 Jul 2015

Cyber Investigations Service Launched

Protection Group International (PGI) has teamed up with other experts in cyber investigation issues to create a new and unique cyber investigations and compliance team.

By joining forces with Red Lion Chambers and Stephenson Harwood, the three companies have created a service, which combines specialist legal, technical and regulatory advice to enable companies to deal with cyber-attacks and to handle the aftermath of such an incident.

Brian Lord, Managing Director of leading risk mitigation company PGI, commented: "The effect of the cyber threat can only be meaningfully countered when companies are confident that their risk is being managed in the same way, and with the same experience and knowledge, as the other risks they face. This initiative provides companies with a huge stepping stone towards that end-state and offers a combined level of knowledge and expertise unparalleled in the cyber security, legal and risk management world."

The new team will focus on investigations which will tackle the threats posed by individuals with criminal intent who set out to deliberately harm a company’s infrastructure or steal sensitive data. The team will also focus on investigations into industrial espionage, activism, individual disaffection and terrorism.

Mike Pullen, Partner at law firm Stephenson Harwood commented: "Governments and regulatory bodies are starting to realise that companies are vulnerable to cyber-attacks and have inadequate precautions in place to either prevent or respond to such activity. Furthermore the sophisticated development of hostile cyber activity often continues to outstrip organisations’ ability to respond. Companies that have suffered attacks clearly need to conduct effective investigations in order to deal with regulatory issues and the inevitable follow-up civil litigation and our team provides a powerful and simple solution to this need."

By bringing together a unique set of skills, the PGI, Red Lion Chambers and Stephenson Harwood cyber investigations team is able to provide a full service solution, including:
