Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
ReliaQuest, a leading Florida-based business specializing in information technology security services and solutions, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Virginia-based Kingfisher Systems, Inc. to jointly provide computer forensics services to commercial companies, law enforcement agencies and legal firms located or operating throughout Florida and the southeastern part of the United States.
Computers and other electronic devices can yield a gold mine of evidence, especially during times of loss of intellectual or proprietary data, child pornography, fraud, and identity theft cases. This partnership brings experts with the ability to conduct computer forensics on an array of devices – including cellphones and smartphones, tablet computers, digital cameras, and computers. Just as police officers wear plastic gloves at a crime scene in order to collect and preserve evidence, these computer sleuths detect, preserve, and document the trail of electronic evidence, pictures, instant messages, deleted files, e-mails, etc.
“As part of ReliaQuest’s commitment to provide our customers with the best possible services, solutions and support, we are constantly seeking ways to bring to market solution-based offerings that compliment and even surpass those current IT security needs,” said President & CEO of ReliaQuest, Brian Murphy. “Partnering with Kingfisher Systems is a vital part of that continued commitment.”
ReliaQuest provides consulting services and solutions that include security planning, compliance and governance, SIEM optimization, co-managed & remote monitoring of security tools and environments, network design, data migration and systems integration. The Kingfisher Systems partnership will expand those offerings and add yet another tool to ReliaQuest’s already highly skilled team of subject matter experts working to solve the cybersecurity problems of today and tomorrow for its customers.
A cyber-attack or suspected compromise of sensitive data is a hectic cybersecurity event for any business or organization. Having a response plan to deal with one or both of these events, prepared in advance, is paramount. Part of that response plan should call for an independent team of computer forensic professionals who are responsible for assessing a breach, mitigating the ill effects of the breach, and for responding to and notifying federal and state law enforcement. Kingfisher Systems has years of experience in advising various federal government and private agencies on risk mitigation designed to safeguard vital data while responding to cybersecurity-related issues.
“We have found that most organizations who suffer from a security breach had no plans in place for handling it, placing them already behind the eight ball,” stated Rich Breeden, Vice President for Cyber Operations at Kingfisher. “The ReliaQuest/Kingfisher team will respond quickly to an incident, assess the breach, and recommend mitigation steps designed to avert further disclosures while more importantly preserving electronic evidence for future litigation.”
The risk profiles of most businesses and organizations are rapidly changing to ever-evolving cyber threats. Being able to have a trusted team who can forensically retrieve lost or presumable damaged data, provide counsel on potential liabilities associated with a breach, and provide a post-mortem assessment to avert future cybersecurity incidents are critical. This is all a part of the DNA of both companies compliments their combined aspiration to deliver the very best cybersecurity solutions to customers.
