KPMG awarded U.S. Patent for cyber incident response solution


KPMG has been granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for KPMG Digital Responder, a solution enabling rapid response to cyber incidents.

KPMG Digital Responder performs a targeted collection of forensic artifacts from live systems or disk images, and then analyzes the data to help accelerate the response with forensic precision.

The solution will generate questions when a potential risk arises, such as ‘why did an employee transfer 200 confidential files to a non-company removable storage device’ or answer questions such as ‘what files were at risk from a threat actors unauthorized access’, the company said in a statement.
