The client urgently required expert support to identify what had happened, contain and remove the attacker and then deal with any associated litigation issues. As a high-profile company, the client was under significant pressure to achieve all of this efficiently and effectively in order to minimize the potential damage to its reputation and financial status and meet its regulatory responsibilities.
