Propelled by digital transformation and fast-tracked by COVID-19, the average enterprise’s technology stack has complicated the network, riddling it with ever-increasing complexity and new and unforeseen security gaps. 

 

With a ransomware attack every 11 seconds or less these days, now is the time to prepare for how to respond and recover if and when the inevitable cyberattack happens. You can’t predict the future. But you can prepare for it. That’s what resilience is all about. 

 

This field guide overviews: 

 

  • Cyber resilience, including cyber threat preparedness and cyber recovery

  • How building these can help you improve security outcomes and reduce risk

  • Building a proactive cyber resilience framework model to help you withstand a new era of cyber threats

The Topics and Summaries

Resilience

 

To thrive in the complex digital world of the future, an enterprise must build cyber resilience. Download the field guide to learn how cyber resilience:

 

  • Lies at the crossroads of cyber readiness and cyber recovery initiatives 
  • Creates a security strategy to strengthen preparedness for a cyberattack, critical data protection and response capabilities  
  • Reduces the risk-adjusted cost of cyberattacks, from remediation to impact  

Readiness

 

Threat actors are innovating at speed. Cyber readiness addresses how to prepare for and lessen the impact of a potential cyberattack. It asks two key questions:

 

  • How do you prepare for, detect and respond to cyberattacks? 
  • How ready are you to combat adversarial activity? 

 

(Hint: the answers start with visibility)

 

Recovery

 

Cyber recovery addresses how to respond and recover when an adversary attacks an environment. It asks:

 

  • How quickly can you recover to a secure state? 
  • How can you lower risk in your environment… …and ultimately get your network back up and running?

Take a Look Inside

 

Resilience starts with assuming your operations will be interrupted at some point, but it’s more than just upgrading business recovery procedures. It’s an evolution in mindset, culture and approach – one that drives resilient measures and practices throughout an organization – shifting its model from reactive to proactive and forging the ability to bounce back if and when hard times hit.
