Dell SecureWorks Approved As A PCI Forensic Investigator

Stocks in this article: DELL

Dell SecureWorks, an industry leader in information security services, has been approved as a PCI Forensic Investigator (PFI) by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Council. Dell SecureWorks is one of only 11 PFIs in the U.S. With an entire practice dedicated to Incident Response (IR) and Digital Forensics, Dell SecureWorks can service any entity within the U.S. and can be on site within 24 hours.

Any entity that stores, processes, or transmits payment card data and is the subject of compromise affecting payment card transactions or cardholder data is required to use a PCI Forensic Investigator to perform a forensic investigation. Dell SecureWorks can investigate and remediate breaches for organizations of all sizes.

The average cost of a cyber breach in the U.S. is $5.4 million per organization and $188 per compromised record, according to the Ponemon Institute 2013 Cost of Data Breach Study. Preparing for an incident and having specialized responders at the ready can save a compromised U.S. organization as much as $55 per record, according to the study.

“When a security breach occurs, response time must be measured in minutes, not hours or days,” said Jeff Schilling, director of Incident Response at Dell SecureWorks. “Time is money, money that the intruders will take from your customers as they expand their foothold in your network and exploit more of your payment card data. You’ve got to move quickly to identify the intrusion, contain the exploitation of your PCI data and eradicate the threat from your environment. Too many companies don’t find all the threat presence without help, and continue to hemorrhage payment card data.”

Sophisticated attackers hide malware in multiple places, and their tools, tactics and procedures (TTP) are always evolving. The Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit TM (CTU) constantly gathers intelligence about threats actors and TTP as it actively monitors the global cyber threat landscape. Working closely with the CTU, the Dell SecureWorks IR teams contain threats and resolve security incidents quickly.

Along with remediating and eradicating active threats, the Dell SecureWorks IR team provides expert consulting services to assess an organization’s security posture, risk and compliance with regulations. Consulting services include Advanced Threat Preparedness, Denial-of-Service Preparedness, Logging Configuration Reviews, Compliance Integration, and Incident Response Testing & Capability Analysis. Dell SecureWorks offers a wide-range of other security solutions including its award-winning Managed Security Services, Threat Intelligence and Security and Risk Consulting.

The Dell SecureWorks IR practice holds numerous network, systems and security certifications, including GIAC Certified Forensic Examiner (GCFE), GIAC Certified Forensic Analyst (GCFA), GIAC Reverse Engineering Malware (GREM) and GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA).
