The challenges of cyber resiliency
Cyber resiliency is the new gold standard when it comes to defending your data and your organization.
In the past, protecting your organization was all about cyber security. But where cyber security software and solutions aim to defend your organization from threats, cyber resiliency is about your ability to adapt to threats, attacks and other adverse cyber events. Cyber resiliency is broader than broader than cyber security – it's about ensuring availability no matter what difficulties your organization faces, whether it's malicious attacks or weather events that damage critical infrastructure.
The most significant challenge to achieving cyber resiliency is the trend toward cloud computing. If you're exclusively using cloud services like Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Windows Azure, you may be putting all your eggs in one basket in terms cyber risk. These high-profile cloud service providers are an attractive target for attackers – and a single point of failure for your organization if you don't have a cyber resiliency plan in place.
