Today’s reality means that organizations need to be constantly vigilant against breaches — and having a robust incident response plan in place is vital. A proactive approach offered by the IBM® X-Force® Incident Response and Intelligence Services (IRIS) team integrates security threat intelligence, incident response and remediation to help minimize the loss of revenue caused by a security incident — and provide a more comprehensive view of an attack so your organization can make the most informed decisions to defend it.
