What is Cyber Resilience?
COVID-19 was an impetus for rapid digitization virtually overnight. With thousands of employees working remotely, CISOs were tasked with creating a secure remote work environment to ensure business continuity. CISOs had to grapple with data security, application security, and endpoint security in an unprecedented context. The lessons learned in this hyper-accelerated transition to remote working catalyzed a radical shift to traditional security governance and cyber-resilience efforts.
A cyber-resilience framework
With more organizations adopting cloud, automation, and digital transformation to prepare themselves better for future disruptions, the need for a secure foundation has never been stronger.
Organizations that want to reap the benefits of cloud and emergent technologies need a cyber-resilience framework that provides the mechanisms for communicating roles and responsibilities, feedback, and critical imperatives between corporate hierarchies to strengthen an enterprise’s posture.
The journey toward cyber security resilience starts with a continuous appreciation of cyber risks that can impact an organization’s ability to thrive and deliver on its core business imperatives.
Zero trust architecture will play a critical role in managing threats as organizations shift their traditional approaches to keeping data, people, and systems secure.
