The threat landscape is increasingly evolving and cyberattacks are continuing to become more frequent and complex. To be prepared for the unpredictable, your business must establish a strong cybersecurity policy that will allow you to remain resilient.
Cyber resilience is the ability to anticipate and defend against a cyberattack, and guarantee business continuity when faced with potential threats. It’s just as important for your business to be able to respond quickly and recover from a cyberattack, as it is to prevent them.
3 Components of a Cyber Resilience Framework
- Enforce a strong cybersecurity policy. It’s important that your organization maintains a strong cybersecurity posture that will allow you to identify and manage any risks your business may face.
- Manage and detect potential threats. Your network should be closely monitored in order to detect potential cyberattacks and respond as quickly as possible.
- Respond fast, recover, and resume operations. With a strong incident response plan, your business can quickly respond and recover from a cyberattack. This will allow your organization to remain resilient and ensure business continuity.
How To Improve Your Cyber Resilience
To ensure your business can remain operational when faced with a potential cyber threat, reduce financial loss due to an attack, and enhance your cybersecurity, you must improve your cyber resilience.
- Continuous monitoring – It’s essential to identify risks in real time in order to act fast. Continuous monitoring will give you greater visibility into your network and the ability to spot threats lurking in your environment.
- Automated detection – Identifying and responding quickly to a cyber threat can drastically reduce the financial loss and potential downtime your organization faces. An Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) solution can quickly uncover threats, investigate attacks, and collect data for a faster response.
- Implement a strong disaster recovery plan – Disaster recovery is a reactive method used to respond quickly, regain access, and resume operations following an incident. It's essential to have a plan in place before an incident occurs.
- Make cyber resilience a part of your company’s culture – Your entire organization should be aware of your cybersecurity policy and well-trained in order to improve your resilience to cyberattacks.
