on the road to cyber resilience

In today’s rapidly shifting risk landscape, IT security professionals have to do more than just build up a wall of defensive solutions in the hopes that it will be sufficient to ward off a cyber attack.

They also have to face the possibility that a cyber attack might be unavoidable and figure out how to keep that from shutting down their organisation. That’s why an essential part of any cyber security strategy is building cyber resilience.

What is cyber resilience?

Cyber resilience is the ability of organisations to stay agile if they become the victim of a cyber attack. Weaving it into your cyber security strategy gives you an edge when you need to act fast.

By making smart choices when selecting defensive solutions, you don’t just gain protection against cyber attacks – you also gain valuable tools that empower your business to pivot as needed to minimise business disruption in the event of a successful cyber attack.

Why does it matter to my business?

If you think about what might happen to your business during a successful cyberattack scenario:

  1. Would your operations grind to a halt?
  2. How much money would you lose from the resulting downtime?

Today’s cyber attacks are more complex and more dangerous than ever before. Cyber security experts are innovating all the time, but so are the criminals – and they are just as motivated to damage your business as you are to defend it.

By building cyber resilience, organisations can ensure that they are agile and ready to act fast, deploying smart tools that maximise their defensive resources in case of trouble.

How can I boost my company's cyber resilience?

A cyber resilient organisation has a variety of tools at their fingertips that can minimise business disruption in the event of a cyber attack. Build your cyber resilience by adding solutions with features that enable you to act fast in order to segment, block and stop damage. These solutions would include:

  • Email Security Gateway
  • DNS Security
  • Security Awareness Training
  • Simulated Phishing
  • Advanced Endpoint Protection
  • Vulnerability and Patch Management
  • 24/7/365 Device Monitoring
  • Firewall Management
  • Technical Reviews
  • Privileged Access Management
  • Email Encryption
  • User Admin Privilege
  • Cloud Access Security Broker
  • Data Analysts
  • Network & Log Security Monitoring
  • Office365 Monitoring
  • Back Up and Disaster Recovery
In conclusion

Technical defensive tools alone aren’t enough to protect a business anymore. That’s why embracing cyber resilience is crucial if companies want to truly protect themselves against cyber crime. Cyber resilient organisations combine strong security solutions with active, people-based defences for flexibility of response during a cyber attack.
