mitigation

Mitigation, or Attack Mitigation, is the reduction in severity or seriousness of an event. In security, mitigation often refers to reducing the severity of a potential or active threat, and mitigation strategies are often used by companies to isolate and minimize the damage or impact of a threat until a problem can be countermeasured.

Example:

“Even though the government’s systems were breached, the rapid response and subsequent attack mitigation prevented additional security incidents.”
