DirectDefense Wins 2023 Fortress Cybersecurity Award

DENVER May 31, 2023 – The Business Intelligence Group today announced that DirectDefense, Inc. has won the 2023 Fortress Cybersecurity Awards in the Incident Response category. The industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.

Despite proper cybersecurity processes, there is always a risk of security threats slipping through the cracks. DirectDefense helps organizations manage security incidents as quickly and effectively as possible through their incident response services. Their methodology includes preparation, detection, analysis, containment, eradication, recovery, and post-incident steps. DirectDefense’s experienced team will work with the customer’s team and any outside vendors or third parties to ensure compliance with regulatory and fiduciary requirements. 

DirectDefense’s Incident Response Services are essential in today’s cyber landscape, with statistics showing that 23% of companies with 5,000+ employees ignore security alerts, 82% of breaches in 2022 involved a human element, and 32% of companies do not have a dedicated cybersecurity division. With DirectDefense’s expertise and methodology, organizations can rest assured that they have the necessary resources to handle security incidents effectively. 

“We are so proud to name DirectDefense as a winner in the 2023 Fortress Cybersecurity Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like DirectDefense are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
