Incident Response (IR) Retainer

Be ready for a breach with CRITICALSTART’s Incident Response Retainer

When you’re under cyberattack, immediate response is critical. Finding and hiring the right incident response experts while the clock is ticking only compounds the stress of being breached.

Don’t be caught off guard when a cyber incident occurs. Proactively preparing an IR strategy poises your business for rapid response and threat remediation – immediately.

CRITICALSTART’s IR retainer gives you priority access to our TEAMARES incident response team through the entire incident response lifecycle, from breach detection until the threat is remediated.
