With 2020 just two months in, the importance of having an understanding of what future cyber threats entail can better protect your business from a cyber breach for this year and beyond.
The rise of ransomware continues with, most recently, the falling victim to receiving an infected email. Rockdale received a spam email containing ransomware discovered after an employee opened an attachment. This has now affected up to nine county servers causing a complete shutdown of servers while they investigate this cause. To be clear, cyberattacks themselves will never stop, but with a clear plan, cyber resilience can be achieved, enabling you to bounce back from attacks and breaches that may happen.
What Is Cyber Resilience?
Cyber resilience is a measure of how well a business can manage a cyber attack or data breach while continuing to operate its business effectively. Foundational security or IT security infrastructures likely use policy-based security controls to protect against known attacks or to alert you if there is a threat detected within your network. The goal of cyber resilience is to ensure that your business is prepared to withstand an attack or breach so your business can continue operating.
How Does Your Organization become Cyber Resilient?
Cyberattacks themselves will never stop, but with the right approach to cybersecurity resilience, defending against them and having a plan for remediation can help your business survive. Corsica Technologies Chief Information Security Officer, Ross Filipek, states: “Cybersecurity is not an IT problem, it’s a business problem for which there may be an IT solution.” Business owners and managers, with guidance from their IT resources, need to define, agree on and endorse a cybersecurity strategy from the top down. Our Guide To Cyber Resilience is aligned with CIS controls framework to provide you with a wealth of practical and actionable guidance for your organization.
Cybersecurity is a never-ending process of continuous improvement, not a destination at which your organization can suddenly arrive. However, with the right strategy in place, your organization can become more resilient to the ever changing threat landscape.
