The increasingly intricate and risky online realm brings numerous challenges to organizations regarding protecting company as well as customer information. Almost every transaction between various private vendors, government agencies, and even individuals is stored electronically in databases or personal electronic devices.
This makes company and customer information vulnerable to attacks by hackers and other malicious players who can easily download thousands of records into a single handheld device in a few seconds. Databases with personal information are often accessed by workers as well who could, knowingly or unknowingly, misuse private information.
Organizations today must be prepared for a data breach. This starts with pre-breach preparation because it identifies gaps that might stop the breach in the first place. Breach readiness planning helps companies develop and build the overall response and team effort, including providing appropriate awareness training to the employees.
On the other hand, post-breach actions are equally important as they focus on helping reduce the impact of the breach. Having a data breach plan in place can help reduce the downtime, loss of control over data, identity theft or fraud, and financial loss in the unfortunate event of a data breach.

“We focus on ensuring our customers are not only aware of the risks of a breach, but prepared to deal with it in an efficient, and most importantly, compliant manner,” said Brandon Brahms, the director of product development at IDIQ.
While many businesses are aware of the risk of a data breach, they might not be adequately prepared to quickly and effectively respond to a breach.
“We provide continuous support from pre-breach planning to post-breach events, so that our clients are ready to act at the time of the breach,” Brahms said. The company heavily focuses on the quality of their product and white-glove service, so customers are well prepared and supported to handle the risks posed by data thieves.
Brahms brings more than a decade of product management and development experience to his role. He has a bachelor’s degree in finance from James Madison University and a Master of Business Administration from San Diego State University- California State University. Before IDIQ, Brahms worked at CoreLogic®, where he was responsible for managing multiple product portfolios and leading the development of the flagship AutomatIQ™ Borrower solution, which focused on automating the complex data gathering and underwriting processes required in the mortgage industry.
With such immense capabilities, IDIQ is also recognized as one of the fastest-growing industry leaders in credit report and identity theft monitoring and data breach preparation.
“We are continually focusing on ways to address that need and have a lot of exciting new developments in the pipeline that we are looking forward to sharing with our clients soon,” Brahms said.
