Incident Response Lifecyle

Columbia Advisory Group’s monitoring services, digital forensics, and incident response services focus on four key elements:

  • Identifying the breach.
  • Containing the breach.
  • Eradicating the intrusion.
  • Recovering from the breach to bring you back into compliance and protect your business.

We manage the entire process and act as your security and compliance department during identification, containment, eradication, and recovery.

Four Phases of Digital Forensics / Incident Response


Contain & Eradicate


To build an effective incident response team, you need a diverse group of individuals with particular skill sets to manage these phases. It would be best if you had a team with deep experience in forensics and investigative work and deep reporting and technical expertise, such as the ability to reverse engineer malware.

As certified cybersecurity & compliance experts (CISSP, CIA, CISA, CEH, PMP, etc.) Columbia Advisory Group’s digital forensics and incident response team is highly skilled in helping businesses recover from cyber breaches.

More than Compliance Readiness

Columbia Advisory Group’s managed compliance services take you through the compliance readiness process and ensure your organization abides by regulatory requirements and certification bodies in preparation for third-party audits against security standards and cyber-insurance renewals.

Columbia Advisory group delivers unified security & compliance reporting that allows your business to track its readiness against any security or risk-based standard in real time.
