Cyber security resilience: the ultimate IT objective
Cyber security resilience has become the new holy grail for cyber risk management. Cyber security alone is simply no longer enough. With a constantly evolving threat landscape, it's unrealistic to expect to thwart every attack every minute of the day. Rather, cyber security resilience focuses on protecting your organization by ensuring business continuity. You must still be focused on threat detection and prevention, but you also need a plan for adapting to an adverse event – whether it's a malicious attack, a damaging storm or simply human error.
The difficulty of achieving cyber security resilience is magnified by the rise of cloud computing. While cloud-based services and platforms like Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce and Amazon Web Services offer tremendous benefits in cost and productivity, they can also represent a certain level of cyber risk. They are popular targets for attackers and can represent a single point of failure for your organization if you don't have backups and secondary solutions in place. This is particularly true for your email system, as the majority of sophisticated threats like ransomware and spear-phishing are email-based attacks.
When you want effective and cost-efficient solutions that can help to achieve cyber security resilience, consider the comprehensive cloud-based services from Mimecast.
