Blockchain Incident Response Services

Through strategic planning and execution, loss of funds can be prevented

The Challenge

Security Culture

The absence of a dedicated security commitment can leave organizations powerless in the face of financial hacks and destructive attacks.

Complex Setup Process

An effective incident response plan includes defining roles and responsibilities, escalation procedures, governance setup, conducting drills, and ensuring communication during emergencies.

Atomic Nature of Blockchain

Since transactions are indivisible and irreversible once initiated, stopping or mitigating attacks before all funds are lost is a challenge.

"The cryptographers at OZ are extremely proficient, even if core contributors of plonk were in the team, we designed a modification that was not easy to grasp, for a very specific use case, and it was understood quite quickly and thoroughly. In fact the discussions lead to some upgrade not only in the solidity code but in gnark-crypto and gnark, especially KZG related operations."
