About Kivu:

Kivu has been at the forefront of digital forensics and cyber incident response for over ten years, celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2019. By providing best-in-class professional and managed cyber security solutions, Kivu aims to be the partner of choice for cyber incident response globally.


Private investment received in early 2019 has allowed us to scale our operations at speed, with new offices in both North America and Europe, and further growth planned in 2020 and beyond. Our purpose is to restore freedom of operation and to minimize business interruption, getting organizations back on their feet fast regardless of the nature of the incident. With nearly 300 ransomware cases handled in 2019 alone, Kivu continues to build its specialist capabilities in cyber extortion response.


Kivu’s cyber security solutions are founded on a powerful combination of professional and managed response services, as well as forensic, remediation and recovery services. To get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible we employ proprietary technology and exceptional, highly qualified personnel. Kivu staff testify as experts before US and UK regulators, in post-breach litigation and in US state and Federal courts. With established offices across North America and in key European locations, and plans for further global expansion, we also offer the geographic reach to accomplish this mission.


We are committed to the success of our insurance and legal partners, and aim to be the best provider of insurance and legal-sourced cyber security response solutions worldwide.
