When confronted with a breach, you need the best team at your side.

Sygnia’s global incident response teams have a proven track record of swiftly containing and defeating cyber attacks, minimizing business disruption, and guiding organizations through the crisis.


Swiftly contain and defeat cyber attacks
Minimize business disruption and damage
Effectively manage the crisis
Emerge from the crisis stronger

“Often described as a cyber security Delta Force…(Sygnia) has developed a reputation for speed and decisiveness in responding to attacks and helping Fortune 100 companies build their cyber resilience.”



We employ only highly experienced A-teams with extensive nation-state level cyber warfare backgrounds, offensive and defensive capabilities, and decades of incident response experience. Our teams are able to out-think, out-maneuver and outpace attackers.


Our agile teams effectively respond to incidents in any environment, with any IT or security stack. Our experience includes cloud, application, CI/CD, OT, mobile, and IoT. Sygnia has also developed an advanced, proprietary crossplatform XDR that is used to augment the client’s existing security tools when needed


Sygnia’s modus operandi is the product of extensive military cyber combat experience. Sygnia’s incident response methodology encompasses parallel execution of the wide variety of activities needed to deal with an attack: investigation and forensics, containment, tactical negotiation, remediation & recovery, executive crisis management, litigation support, and post-breach monitoring.


Threat research and continuous monitoring of the global threat landscape is incorporated into Sygnia’s incident response efforts, ensuring effective forensic investigations and revealing novel threat actors to the global security community.


When an organization is under attack, every minute counts. Sygnia commences activities in multiple workstreams to accelerate incident resolution. To enable a highly robust, and agile response, Sygnia is able to execute all of the workstreams in parallel, orchestrate among them, and manage the incident end-to-end.

Executive Crisis Management

Sygnia teams with executive leadership to lead through the crisis and provide accurate answers to stakeholders, employees, and the general public. In parallel with technical incident resolution streams, Sygnia supports executive crisis management including legal, regulatory, PR and internal management efforts.


It is critical to quickly ensure that areas of the environment that have not yet been impacted by the attack, will not be compromised. This can be achieved by segregating or quarantining them. Investigative findings are leveraged to rapidly contain the threat and prevent further damage to the business.


Sygnia performs triage and investigation to identify the initial entry point, the scope of compromise, how the attack propagated through the environment, the tools used by the attacker, and the current threat level. Sygnia rapidly and accurately identifies attack vectors, timelines, and attacker capabilities that must be remediated.

Tactical Negotiation

Sygnia leverages expert negotiators to gain critical time and feed valuable information from the attacker back to the technical investigative team. This approach serves not only to significantly lower ransom demands, but also to substantially improve the speed of technical investigation and recovery efforts.

Remediation and Recovery

Recovery efforts are initiated immediately, in parallel with the initial investigation. By leveraging a “secure island” environment in which key services are re-created before the compromised method has been cleared, the organization can return to full business operations much faster. The remediation effort identifies and closes security, and the attacker’s presence in the environment is eradicated.

Threat Monitoring

Attackers may attempt additional malicious actions at any time. To minimize this risk, Sygnia’s incident response team performs tailored monitoring throughout and after an incident, to ensure additional malicious activities and re-entry attempts are detected and blocked immediately.


Sygnia’s Incident Response Retainer (IRR) provides predetermined critical engagement parameters that decrease the resolution time of a cyber incident. They enable Sygnia’s team to hit the ground running and immediately initiate response efforts when an incident occurs.


The Sygnia team immediately mobilizes support across the six workstreams mentioned above. Working in parallel enables the rapid prevention of additional damage while creating a “secure island” to ensure the start of business recovery. The technical investigation team works together with our expert negotiators to achieve a full understanding of the attack kill chain and scope of compromise, facilitating well informed strategic decision-making. Through this approach, business leaders can lead through the crisis and effectively return to a secure, fully operational environment.


Sygnia’s approach to these incidents is driven by our proven ability to fully and rapidly determine the scope of compromise, including identification of all malicious points of access, and mapping of the chain of events leading to potential data loss. Once this understanding is established, complete kill-switch events are designed to simultaneously remove all malicious access to the organization and ensure that persistent actors cannot re-enter. The Sygnia team also provides continuous litigation support to ensure that any legal and regulatory fallout from the data breach is fully addressed with the necessary technical evidence and expertise.


Whether it’s cryptocurrency or international bank transactions, gift cards or ATM manipulation, the Sygnia team moves immediately to identify and remediate the key systems being targeted.

A comprehensive forensic investigation enables the establishment of new anti-fraud mechanisms, tailored monitoring to detect and prevent future attacks, and identification of key single points-of-failure in financial systems. Once identified, unique secure design principles are applied to mitigate these risks and protect the organization.


Over the years, Sygnia has protected leading global businesses facing multiple nation-state attackers and APTs. These attacks, perpetrated by highly sophisticated actors, often employ zero- day vulnerabilities and unlimited resources to reach their goals. They bypass standard defenses and require unique incident response methodologies.

The Sygnia team, comprised of nation-state experts, capitalizes on an in-depth understanding of attacker modus operandi, and employs advanced tools to identify threat actors that are operating within organizational environments. Once an attack is investigated, remediation is performed in conjunction with in-depth defensive activities. Vigilance is maintained with advanced monitoring, to prevent a recurrence.
