PwC rated as a leader in Independent Digital Forensics and Incident Response Service Providers Report

PwC was invited by Forrester Research to participate in The Forrester Wave™: Digital Forensics and Incident Response Service Providers, Q3 2017.  In this evaluation, PwC have been cited as a Leader.

Digital Forensics and Incident Response

Forrester states that “The digital forensics and incident response services market is growing because more security & risk (S&R) pros recognise that it’s only a matter of time before they will be responding to a security incident.  Forrester’s research has found that having an incident response retainer in place is a best practice to ensure a timely and efficient response.”

Commenting on PwC, Forrester highlights that “Integrating cybersecurity strategy and program transformation as key elements of its execution road map, PwC seeks to help clients think more broadly about cybersecurity and privacy; it delivers services as both protector and enabler of business. In support of this vision, PwC very clearly outlines not only its incident triage and escalation processes, but also its customer journey for incident readiness to help customers prepare for crisis. The ability to provide a gamut of digital forensics and incident response services globally while maintaining the highest marks from customer references proved to be a differentiator in this Forrester Wave.” 

Kristin Rivera, PwC’s Global Forensic Services Leader said:  “We are proud to be named a leader in Digital Forensics and Incidence Response.  Digital forensics enables businesses to discover and manage critical information and harness the power of analytics and intelligence to drive actionable insights. PwC Forensics helps companies to prepare, respond and emerge stronger from a wide range of threats, which is critical to the success and reputation of their business.”

In addition, Sean Joyce, PwC’s US Cybersecurity and Privacy Leader said: “At PwC, we use our many years of experience responding to thousands of incidents and investigations to assist clients. We are very proud to be recognised as a leader in delivering digital forensics and incident response services - and can help our clients develop strategic approaches to managing digital risk informed by timely and actionable threat intelligence and research.
