AGCS today announced the addition of FireEye to its panel of service providers, which has been set up to help businesses minimise data loss, business interruptions and reputational damage from a cyber event. AGCS clients now have access to FireEye technology, intelligence and expertise to eliminate the complexity and burden of cyber security for organizations. With deep knowledge of sophisticated attack techniques and specialized areas such as protecting Industrial Control Systems, FireEye scales to match the cyber defence capabilities with their organization’s risk profile for customers across more than 65 countries worldwide.
It is estimated that cyber-crime costs the global economy approximately $445bn a year1, with the world’s largest economies accounting for around half of this, according to data in the AGCS report, ‘A Guide to Cyber Risk: Managing The Impact of Increasing Interconnectivity’. Businesses are driven by real-time data. Any interruption of the process chain – even for a minute – could cause a severe business interruption, impacting the balance sheet. By working with FireEye, AGCS policy holders will benefit from leading detection technology, nation-state grade threat intelligence and services expertise based on responding to hundreds of the most sophisticated attacks/events across the globe. Organizations can reduce the time from detection to response and mitigate the impact of a cyber event before it impacts business continuity.
