In the event of a malicious attack, cyber security specialists implement a set of procedures and protocols to stop or mitigate the security threat.

What to do when IT systems may be compromised
Due to the sinister nature of security attacks, IT staff and cyber security specialists have only one opportunity to investigate an incident, collect evidence, recover data and restore systems.
For this reason, Intrix Cyber Security recommends contacting the 24/7 emergency incident response team for advice on the correct course of action. The faster an organisation responds to a cyber attack, the faster specialists can investigate and mitigate the threat.
Businesses should remove any affected devices from the network but kept powered on to minimise any threats from spreading. To avoid further data loss, organisations should not:
- Format hard drives or delete data
- Plug any other hardware, recovery tools or backups into affected systems
- Contact any known or unknown perpetrators
- Pay any ransoms based on unsubstantiated claims of access to confidential data
