Moving from Cybersecurity to Cyber Resilience to Defend Against Surging Threats

While cybersecurity protection systems are critical and necessary, recent high-profile attacks like the Barracuda email attack prove that even with great cybersecurity we are still vulnerable to exploits and attacks – often from undisclosed and undetectable ‘zero-day’ vulnerabilities.  That is why it is critical to build cyber resiliency, not just cybersecurity. Cybersecurity encompasses conventional preventive measures such as firewalls, antivirus and intrusion detection – which remain essential to defending networks and protecting data. Going beyond cybersecurity and moving towards cyber resilience is critical to withstanding the surging number of threats and changing attack vectors.  In this session we will discuss how you can incorporate business continuity, risk management and incident response into your strategy to move from security to resilience. You will learn the 6 steps to establish a resilience framework that ensures your ability to respond quickly and decisively to an ongoing attack in order to limit disruptions and sustain operations.
