Building Cyber Resilience for when the inevitable occurs
No organisation is safe from an attack. What’s changed is that companies and governments must face the reality that it’s not if they’ll get hacked, but when.
Developing cyber resilience is the only way to build effective defences to protect your organisation from the inevitable.
Where do you start on the road to cyber resilience?
1. Use Recognised Frameworks and Standards
By combining the commonly accepted standards for cyber security, ISO 27001 and business continuity, ISO 22301, organisations are able to follow a comprehensive approach to being resilient to cyber attacks.
2. Conduct a Cyber Security Risk Assessment
Regular vulnerability assessments and penetration tests are a good measure of assessing the robustness of your networks, systems and applications. These tests require a trained eye and instinctive judgment in order to provide the best advice regarding the test outcomes.

4. Testing and Incident Response Planning
It is essential to conduct an incident response plan, followed by regular testing to validate whether your programmes are effective.
