Service Components ⫘
Proactive Services ⫘
Secureworks will provide Customer with Proactive Services available in the Secureworks Services Catalog. The scope for each Proactive Service in the catalog is fixed (standard Secureworks scope will be used); however, Secureworks can work with Customer to reasonably customize the scope. Any deviations from this Service Catalog shall require a change order signed by both parties. Each request for a Proactive Service will be scoped and the number of required Service Units will be determined prior to Engagement start.
Engagement-specific Deliverables ⫘
Upon completion of each Proactive Service, Customer will receive final Engagement-specific Deliverables (e.g., a Final Report) that will include information about the completed Proactive Service. See the Secureworks Services Catalog for details.
Secureworks Services Catalog ⫘
The Secureworks Services Catalog contains the Proactive Services available to Customer through use of the Service Units. If Customer does not have enough Service Units for a service in the catalog, then Customer will need to contact their Customer Success Manager or Secureworks Account Manager to purchase additional Service Units. If Customer purchased ManagedXDR through a Secureworks partner, then Customer must contact partner of choice for additional purchases of Service Units.
Below are descriptions of the categories of services listed in the Secureworks Services Catalog.
- Incident Readiness and Advisory Services — Secureworks will assess and/or design an incident response plan that enables effective and efficient response to a cyber incident. Cybersecurity assessments are available to help Customer strengthen its cybersecurity posture and align cybersecurity program efforts with strategic objectives.
- Testing and Validation Services — Secureworks will conduct testing to discover any previously unknown issues, vulnerabilities, or threats in Customer’s environment that could lead to a compromise.
- Threat Intelligence Services — Secureworks will provide threat and brand surveillance services such as an information brief for Enterprise Brand Surveillance.

The workshops and exercises provide practical, hands-on experience in performing tactical incident response tasks, validate defined IR processes, and allow practice of the concepts outlined in Customer’s existing IR plan in real-world cyber event scenarios. The workshops and exercises can be customized based on Customer’s specific needs.
- Programs — Secureworks will work with you to identify the most appropriate path to maximize your readiness to respond to a ransomware attack and test your resilience.
- Technical Assistance Services — Secureworks will provide services for fixed scope technical requests such as conducting malware analysis.
Emergency Incident Response ⫘
In the event of a cybersecurity emergency or need for Emergency Incident Response services, Customer may use Service Units for an EIR Engagement. Only increments of one (1) Service Unit are acceptable (e.g., no partial Service Units can be used). One (1) Service Unit is equal to five (5) EIR hours.
Secureworks can provide EIR that can be conducted remotely or on-site. The activities conducted can include but are not limited to the following:
- Incident support and coordination
- Digital media handling guidance and support
- Deployment support for host-based, network-based, and log analysis technologies
- Network analysis services
- Incident response and digital forensic analysis of online and offline infrastructure and datasets from Customer’s on-premises and cloud assets

- Periodic Engagement Status Updates, in accordance with the mutually agreed-upon communication plan for each Engagement

To provide clarification, information about some of the above-listed items is provided in the subsections below.
Digital Forensic Analysis ⫘

- Disk images
- Memory images
- Mobile devices
- Network packet captures

Malware Analysis and Reverse Engineering ⫘
As part of EIR, Secureworks may perform static, dynamic, and reverse engineering analysis to assist in understanding the function of Customer-supplied files.
Secureworks will provide analysis results, to include cyber threat intelligence based on correlation across Secureworks datasets and will advise on mitigation actions to reduce the impact of the sample on Customer’s infrastructure.
Ransomware Negotiation ⫘
As part of EIR, Secureworks may negotiate on behalf of Customer with a ransomware threat actor regarding return or deletion of stolen data and potential payment of a ransom amount. The primary objective of ransomware negotiation is to negotiate a reduced price from the original ransom demand for the return or deletion of any stolen data to minimize Customer’s risk pertaining to data leakage or further extortion.
Secureworks will contact a Customer-designated representative within five (5) business days after the execution of the Transaction Document to validate scoping and schedule Proactive Services. For each Engagement, Secureworks will provide a work order to Customer for review. Prior to scheduling and commencing work for each Engagement, Customer must provide written approval of the work order to Secureworks. Below is information about scheduling and re-scheduling EIR and Proactive Services Engagements.
- EIR: Customer will request EIR using the Incident Response Hotline or the Taegis™ XDR in-application chat. These communication methods are available to Customer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- Proactive Services: The Proactive Services listed in the Secureworks Services Catalog require a minimum of four (4) weeks advance notification to schedule and complete within the Services Term. Secureworks will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet Customer’s requests for dates and times to deliver the Service(s), taking into consideration Customer-designated maintenance interval, Customer deliverable deadlines, and other Customer scheduling requests. Written confirmation of an agreed-upon schedule shall constitute formal acceptance of such schedule. If Customer requests multiple Proactive Services simultaneously, then Secureworks will schedule the first request as described above, with additional requests scheduled as best-effort based on resource and personnel availability.
Delivery Coordination ⫘
Secureworks will provide coordination for the Service(s) with appropriate communication and updates to the stakeholder community. The coordinator will oversee logistics for people, processes, and tools as well as timeline and meeting facilitation.
The scope of delivery coordination includes the following:
- Develop delivery timeline with Customer and with Secureworks personnel
- Work with Customer to identify and address issues or concerns that impact service delivery
- Periodic, high-level updates on progress
- Confirm delivery and procure project sign-off
Services will be delivered from Customer’s site(s) and/or remotely from a secure location. Secureworks and Customer will determine the location of the service(s) to be performed herein.
Secureworks solely reserves the right to refuse to travel to locations deemed unsafe by Secureworks or locations that would require a forced intellectual property transfer by Secureworks. Secureworks solely reserves the right to require a physical security escort at additional Customer expense to locations that are deemed unsafe by Secureworks. Customer will be notified at the time that services are requested if Secureworks refuses to travel or if additional physical security is required, and Customer must approve the additional expense before Secureworks travel is arranged. In the event any quarantines, restrictions, or measures imposed by governmental authority or Secureworks restricts travel to any location, Secureworks may at its election (i) deliver the Services remotely or (ii) postpone the Services until travel is permitted. If neither option (i) nor (ii) in the preceding sentence is feasible, Secureworks may terminate the affected Services and provide Customer with a refund of any unused, prepaid fees.
