KPMG’s cyber and forensics divisions serve many
customers in many industries who struggle to put
process in place around cyber and forensics issues.
They depend on KPMG to provide analysis and
guidance on security breaches and effective remedies
to protect them from future attacks.
Business Challenge: KPMG’s workflow with customers would be to receive logs from a compromised machine, often IIS web server logs, windows and event logs. The files could be 10-15 TB of structured or unstructured data, and KPMG has a limited understanding of the customer’s environment. The cyber security and forensics division would then analyze the logs and report back to the customer using manual tools to research the logs.
