Prepare & Respond
Cyber security incidents are on the rise, with the average total cost of a data breach to organizations in 2016 amounting to £2.53 million*.

Verizon DBIR Contributor
MWR is a regular contributor to the annual Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), comprised of real-world data breaches and security incidents. This year's report, available here, is based on the analysis of over 40,000 incidents, including 1,935 confirmed data breaches.
The CIR and CSIR schemes
MWR achieved Cyber Incident Response (CIR) and Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) accreditation in 2013 specifically because of its understanding of the threat posed by highly skilled threat actors and its experience of full incident response lifecycles. Its 24/7/365 Incident Response Hotline and rapid remote response technology ensures that appropriate action at the time of an emergency is taken to minimize business impact.
Originally launched by the Communications-Electronics Security Group (CESG), now part of the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), CIR-certified providers protect against and respond to sophisticated, targeted attacks against networks of national significance.
The CSIR scheme focuses on appropriate standards for incident response suited to industry, the wider public sector and academia. It is administered by The Council of Registered Ethical Secuity Testers (CREST) and endorsed by NCSC.
