Be ready to deal with cyber security incidents
We provide priority, around-the-clock access to Telstra’s highly-skilled and vastly experienced Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) when you need them most. Our Incident Response service works on a retainer model to respond quickly when you notify us of a suspected incident, including unauthorised or compromised access to your systems, data loss or theft, network viruses, unauthorised payments, suspicious network activity or ransomware attacks.
Dedicated incident support
Receive an allocation of between 40-150 hours support from our CERT professionals, paid for on a retainer basis.
One hour response target
No time is wasted when an incident occurs. We target a response time of one hour from when an incident is reported for triage.
We work with your team to create a contingency process prepared in advance to better mitigate issues.
Our comprehensive global coverage and experience secures both domestic and overseas operations.
If you don’t experience an incident within the contract term, you can use the retainer for up to five days of security consulting services.

Is your business ready to handle a cyber attack?
The Telstra Purple Incident Response Readiness Assessment gives you the ability to reappraise your response to a security incident across the entire organisation ensuring you are meeting your security, governance, privacy and compliance requirements.
How it works
Telstra Incident Response is purchased in advance to have Telstra on retainer in the event of a major security incident. The retainer covers an allocation of hours, dependant on the tier. It must be purchased before you experience an incident to access priority resources.
As soon as you suspect your business has suffered a cyber-attack, simply call our dedicated Telstra phone number. Our team of security specialists will arrange a triage call within an hour to quickly initiate the Incident Response process.
They will commence analysis as soon as you provide the required data, then investigate and provide advice to contain the threat. If you also have our Cyber Detection and Response service we can respond faster as we’ll already have access to your logs and an understanding of your ICT environment.
You’ll receive daily updates throughout the process, as well as a written report with recommendations to help you put measures in place in an effort to prevent the incident from recurring.
If the retainer service is unused, it can be redeemed for Purple Security Consulting and Professional services.
Incident Response Tiers
Telstra’s Incident Response service is a pre-paid block of incident response hours at a discounted hourly rate and available in three tiers depending on your requirements:
- Essentials – A single use product to have Telstra on retainer in the event of a major security incident. It provides an annual allocation of 40 hours for a single cyber-security incident, handled by our CERT professionals. If more than 40 hours are required, our experts will still be available to help on an hourly rate. Unused Incident Response hours can be used for other Telstra Purple security consulting services
- Advanced – Offers a service duration of 24 months with a total of 100 retainer hours for the term. It includes a two-day Incident Response Readiness Assessment.
- Premium – In addition to the inclusions in the Advanced tier, this is a 36 month incident response package offering a total of 150 retainer hours for the service duration. There is an enhanced four hour SLA to further reduce the incident impact.
