Cyber Resilience is becoming an increasingly important subject among organizations, in particular among executives and board-level members, that aim to bring together cybersecurity and business continuity in an effort to be prepared for cyber incidents and to demonstrate their fiduciary duty. Cyber Resilience is ensuring an organization can withstand and recover quickly from unknown and known cyber threats while maintaining or quickly restoring necessary organizational functions. Organizations that are not resilient may lose customers, the trust of the community, delay care and negatively impact revenue when their business operations are down or delayed.
A strong cybersecurity program in healthcare safeguards electronic protected health information (ePHI) and ensures business operations are not halted or disrupted due to a cyber incident. Executive leadership in healthcare, along with government, financial, and retail organizations are assessing how resilient its organizational assets (people, information, technology, and facilities) and operational practices would be when a cyber incident occurs.
Cyber resilience requires business leaders to take a different mindset and approach to cybersecurity. Previously, the weight of cybersecurity relied heavily on information technology departments and with the direction and subject moving to cyber resilience, business leaders are addressing cybersecurity alongside information technology. Therefore, with the information gleaned from a Cyber Resilience Review Assessment, your organization will be able to create and integrate a strategy to prevent, detect, react, and recover – successfully and quickly.
