CCDS’s digital forensics and incident management services provide fully secure coverage of a corporation’s internal systems, managed by cyber security professionals. As experts in cyber security and computer forensics, our team of highly trained and skilled private detectives are regularly sought by corporations, commercial enterprises, law firms, governmental organisations, councils and private individuals. 

The 6 Steps of CCDS Incident Management

Corporations and companies large and small benefit from a smooth DFIR process. Lawyers have heavy caseloads to juggle, companies have their businesses to run and private individuals have their own lives and jobs to consider. But a private detective and professional digital forensicist has the time and attention to focus on your case.

However, in order to assess risk and mitigate threats, it’s important you also understand the steps of incident response so you can decide if you need to hire a private investigator or professional computer forensics agency to help you contain the damage. It’s also helpful to know how to respond the next time there is a corporate incident, even if it is different in nature.

The 6 Steps of CCDS Incident Management



Incident managers need to be prepared to handle incident response with policies in place and platform software identified.



Digital forensics experts detect the incident by tracking and extracting data, identifying the nature and origin of the threat and calculating the risk involved.



Next, incident managers have to work quickly to contain the threat so that it doesn’t continue to spread through to adjacent systems.



A plan is established to correct the issue. Computer forensic analysis is interpreted and applied to determine the best way to resolve the incident.


Incident Recovery

Following its established policies, the company begins to resume regular operations. During this phase, monitoring and reporting on the incident must remain continuous and ongoing.


Record & Report

Once the issue has been stabilised, resolved and monitored in due course after the event, the incident manager must communicate with stakeholders, end-users and the public to report on progress of the incident while providing transparency.
