DAY 2 OF THE RISK & RESILIENCE ONLINE EVENT
Covid-19, cybersecurity and resilience: how can we balance all three?
For many people, the current coronavirus crisis came quicker than expected. Before we knew it, everyone was working remotely. Fortunately, we were prepared and quickly scaled up in capacity so that everyone could safely work remotely, using various means of communication. This required a great deal of resilience both from the organisation and from the technology behind it. A crisis like this presents an opportunity to test whether the available resources are sufficient to cope with this disrupted situation, and also to ensure that an organisation’s security preparations are in order. The number of ransomware attacks is increasing daily: attackers know what most companies are struggling with and are keen to take advantage of the current disruption.
Resilience and ‘cyber-recovery’ have received a lot of attention recently in academic research and aroused the interest of many consulting firms, with the result that resilience and cyber-recovery will probably soon earn their own Gartner Hype Cycles.
But what is resilience? Can it be measured? Can it be qualified? Can it be quantified? And what about the ability to recover? Is there a relationship between cyber-recovery and resilience?
During the interactive session, we will discuss this in detail and focus on the questions posed above. We are also curious about the current state of your cyber resilience during this coronavirus crisis, in both the business and private spheres. Our goal is to create new insights by discussing this topic from various angles during this session. With the insights we gain, we will collect all the input from the participants to set out the best practices for a great cyber-recovery! We look forward to seeing you on 4 November.
