Co3 Systems Selected by CSC for Global Cybersecurity Incident Response Management

Next-Generation IT Services Firm Deploying Co3 to Assist Customers With Incident Preparedness/Planning, Response Management and Regulatory Compliance

SAN FRANCISCO/CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—February 25, 2014—Co3 Systems, the leader in Incident Response Management Systems (IRMS), today announced that CSC, a global leader in next-generation IT services and solutions, has chosen to arm its incident response teams worldwide with the Co3 platform. With access to Co3, CSC teams can help clients more quickly and effectively evaluate their preparedness, coordinate global responses, and comply with government, regional or industry regulations regarding sensitive business assets or data. 

The globalization of business and connectivity, plus the international nature of cybercrime means that organizations are vulnerable around the clock and from anywhere in the world.  Response capability has to be similarly deployed. CSC provides enterprise-class cybersecurity offerings for some of the most sophisticated and challenging environments around the world. The company has a global security footprint that includes five Security Operations Centers (SOCs), more than 2000 security experts, an advanced malware lab and cross-border incident response (IR) methodologies.  CSC provides 24/7 incident response/forensics services, security assessment and personnel training, security monitoring, and post incident security posture enhancement. 

"In the cyber realm, battles and skirmishes are fought every day and in every country.  With teams deployed around the world, we make sure that our experts have the most powerful tools on hand to work with our customers and their extended partner networks," said Samuel Visner, Vice President and General Manager, CSC Global Cybersecurity. “The breadth and depth of Co3's analytics and knowledge base, combined with its automation and ease-of-use allows security and crisis teams, business executives and service providers to work in concert to get the job done." 

As the industry's first daily use and preparedness tool for security and privacy incidents, the Co3 platform enables organizations of all sizes to efficiently prepare for and rapidly manage the IR process.  Once populated with incident specifics—including artifacts and indicators of compromise—Co3 analyzes and correlates information with previous events, threat intelligence feeds and applicable legal statutes.  It then generates a complete mandated response plan and provides an easy, automated way to ensure consistency and accountability—across teams, organizations and external stakeholders anywhere in the world.  Co3 affords teams the specific ability to:

·         Perform pre-incident planning and preparation—including organizing and running periodic "table top" drills.

·         Complete management and tracking of tasks and milestones during an incident while it occurs, and full client reporting and historial capture for future event reference and "lessons learned."

·         Complete legal, policy and technical support based on regulatory and best practice frameworks, including all applicable requirements under regional (U.S., Canada, EU or Asia/Pacific), federal (FCC, FISMA, GBLA, etc.), industry (PCI, HIPAA, etc.) and/or individual state regulations. 

"Just as with protection and detection, incident response needs to be an 'always on' business function," said John Bruce, CEO at Co3 Systems. "The nature of global threats and cybercriminals is to be constantly attacking, adapting and then attacking again.  As such, organizations and governments must be quick and agile in order to protect business stakeholders and consumers. With our ability to keep pace with everthing from the latest threat intelligence to the most recent breach disclosure requirements, you have an incident response capability that truly can be described as world-class."
