Abstract: Modern-day cybersecurity primarily revolves around cyber resilience, i.e., an organization’s ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from cyber attacks. Organizations are said to be resilient to cyber threats if their business operations do not slow down or come to a halt after a significant security incident. Thus, a diversified backup and recovery strategy is equally important, where it can be ensured that critical information remains accessible even if systems are compromised.
The aim of making the security posture resilient is not only to ensure uninterrupted critical operations but also to develop effective cyber resilience strategies that integrate technology, people, and processes. As part of the cyber resilience strategy, organizations must implement cutting-edge tools and continuously monitor their assets and networks to defend against threats proactively and develop cyber defense policies, capabilities, capacity, and partnerships to be resilient to cyber threats. Cyber resilience also demands a culture of cybersecurity awareness and education among employees alongside technology implementation such as regular software updates, encryption, and patch management to help eliminate vulnerabilities. The current webinar discusses the importance of cyber resilience strategies and the steps to create an effective method to prevent threats and respond to incidents.
