No computer network is 100% secure. Computer security is no longer just about how you stop the criminals gaining access to your network. You must also prepare for what will happen when they do gain access.

No incident response team in Ireland has broader experience than Grant Thornton Ireland’s. We respond with dozens of IT security incidents every month in Ireland and abroad. We have dealt with everything from simple virus infections, web-site defacements and email hacks to the very largest cyber frauds and international hacking incidents. We help our clients validate, assess, contain and remedy cyber incidents with the minimum of disruption, publicity and cost.
