Interop Digital: Cyber Resilience in Uncertain Times



Cautious organizations prepare for disasters with measures like cyber insurance and good backups. Yet, cyberattacks, climate change, a pandemic, and civic unrest are threatening business continuity, disaster recovery, and cyber resilience plans. Ransomware has become so costly that insurers are raising premiums or leaving the cyber market entirely. Backup data centers are at risk of damage from wildfires, floods, and heat waves. In this Interop event, learn how to assess the cyber risks of today, what role insurance should play in your resilience plan, how to craft an effective incident response plan, and new factors you should consider before investing in IT infrastructure.
