COLUMBIA, Md., April 2 (UPI) -- A U.S. business unit of General Dynamics has opened a forensics facility to help customers prevent, contain and analyze cyberattacks.

Activities of the teams at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions includes assessing the security posture of customers; designing, building and managing a security infrastructure capable of discovering and containing advanced threats; and responding to sophisticated attacks quickly and effectively.

"Today's rapidly evolving threat landscape is more perilous than ever before, with organizations around the world aggressively attacked by sophisticated advanced persistent threats," said Jim Jaeger, vice president of cybersecurity services at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions.

"We have a tremendous team that has collectively handled more than 3,500 breach cases. We help customers decipher and counter threats by going beyond the standard procedures of cyber forensics and actually reverse engineering attacks."

If a breach in security should occur, company teams preserve evidence and maintain detailed evidence logs to help prosecutors identify and pursue cyber criminals.
