Loss Mitigation Preparation Services

Your company may have the best firewall and virus detection software available. But neither of these will protect you when human error comes into play. That’s because most breaches happen when a user clicks on a bad link, opens an infected file or has a weak password. As an affiliated valued service provider, we work directly with you to improve your loss mitigation preparation with the following:

  • Design cyber-training and education programs for your workforce to minimize your risk
  • Assess and/or amend employee manuals, training materials or presentations to effectively communicate improved cyber policies
  • Develop an incident response plan and crisis communications policy
  • Provide personnel, communications and media training
  • Assessment and recommendations on business recovery planning
  • Contract drafting to assign risk to the proper parties
  • Insurance counseling to provide indemnification for your measured risk
  • Assessment and review of third-party vendors and other federated networks

Breach Response/Containment

In the event of a breach, we’ll respond immediately to work with you to detect and eliminate any security threats and minimize any damage.

We’ll leverage forensic investigations based on the scope and source of the breach and then recommend remediation strategies to prevent further loss. We will then assist with the following steps:

  • Required government compliance reporting
  • Identify records and critical information affected and identify their sensitivity
  • Consult on notification procedures for customers or clients affected by a breach*
  • Assess potential losses from the breach
  • Establish a framework to evaluate and respond to potential claims*
  • Advise on issues concerning regulatory agencies and law enforcement*
  • Provide public relations/media interaction services
  • Evaluate insurance and indemnification agreements to help mitigate any losses

*Aspects of these areas and others may indicate the need for legal counsel. Subject to clearing conflicts, Harris Beach PLLC, the law firm parent of HB Solutions, may be able to provide the legal counsel required or you can retain other legal counsel if preferred.

  • Design, organize and staff claims response programs where indicated
  • Immediate assessment of claims*
  • Administration of claims payment systems and services/coordination of vendor services to assist your claims group where needed
  • Negotiate with credit monitoring services (to the extent your company chooses to offer such services)
