The key to a strong cyber security defence: resilience
As organizations look for cyber security defence solutions to combat email-borne threats, it has become clear that a strategy for cyber resilience is the best way to protect users, data and the business.
Simple virus protection is no longer enough to keep your business safe. While viruses and malware still pose a danger, email threats have evolved to include targeted attacks like phishing and spear-phishing attacks that use social engineering techniques, and impersonation attacks like whaling and spoofing. A cyber security defence today must also guard against a rising onslaught of ransomware attacks that can quickly shut down business operations.
Because even the most potent threat response solutions will be inadequate at times, more organizations are realizing that the best cyber security defence is a focus on resilience. When disaster strikes – from an attack, a hardware failure, a human error or even a natural disaster – a cyber resilience plan make sure that email and other data is always available, always replicated and always safe.
