Through partnership with Kroll it will offer guidance on major cyber aggregation events

CyberCube has launched a cyber incident response service for clients of the company’s SaaS products.

The Cyber Aggregation Event Response Service (CAERS) will see CyberCube partnering with Kroll, to provide clients with information and guidance on major cyber aggregation events. Kroll will provide frontline threat intelligence generated from the thousands of incident response cases it handles every year.

Darren Thomson, CyberCube’s Head of Cyber Intelligence Services, said: “With cyber events becoming increasingly common, the speed and accuracy with which organisations respond to them is critical.

”The pressure on our clients during a major cyberattack can be extreme. With CAERS, our team—comprising data scientists, actuaries, engineers, economists and cyber security experts—will become an extension of our clients’ teams, providing the updates they need and sharing both our expertise and data.”

Benedetto Demonte, chief operating officer for Kroll’s Cyber Risk practice, said: “In our most recent Threat Landscape Report, we saw a 356% growth in the number of attacks quarter-on-quarter where the infection vector was a zero-day or freshly-announced software exploit.

”Ransomware groups have also been found to be leveraging newly announced vulnerabilities just days after release. It is only with access to frontline intelligence that firms can prioritise resources, mitigate the risk of a cyberattack and react appropriately if the worst happens.”
