Its cyber incident solutions include data mining, document review, notification list creation, precision mailings, dedicated contact centers, identity, and credit monitoring, as well as services to proactively prepare for cyber incidents and mitigate risk.

“Large scale outreach to extensive groups in short windows of time is an Epiq core competence perfected in years of class action, mass tort, bankruptcy settlement administration, and cyber incident response,” Hollinder said. “By minimizing breach damage and protecting affected contacts from fraud, we can help companies maintain brand trust and reduce the risk of class action litigation and higher insurance premiums and fines that follow. With CyEx’s monitoring solutions – which include credit, identity, financial, minor, medical, and privacy monitoring – we can go beyond traditional identity and credit monitoring to include advanced monitoring relevant to the information breached.”

Breach and incident response plans can now be enhanced with monitoring solutions relevant to the type of cyber incident or fraud.
