Cyber Resilience

The world is changing rapidly and cyber criminals are adapting to it faster than security solutions are being developed. Targeted attacks by skilled and persistent cyber criminals are now a worrying business reality.

Traditional security measures like firewalls and antivirus software are proving inadequate in the evolving threat landscape. It’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ an organisation will suffer an attack.

What organisations should do now is to ‘assume breach’. Instead of focusing all your efforts on keeping criminals out of your network, it’s better to assume they will eventually break through your defences, and start working on a cyber resilience strategy to reduce the impact of a breach.

 

What is cyber resilience?

To explain cyber resilience, we first need to explain the concept of cyber security.

Cyber security consists of technologies, processes and measures that are designed to protect individuals and organisations from cyber crimes. Effective cyber security reduces the risk of a cyber attack through the deliberate exploitation of systems, networks and technologies. Cyber security is a sub-section of information security.

Cyber resilience is a broader approach that encompasses cyber security and business continuity management, and aims not only to defend against potential attacks but also to ensure your organisation’s survival following an attack.

An organisation’s resilience to cyber attacks will become a critical survival trait in the future.

 

How to achieve cyber resilience

To achieve cyber resilience, an organisation should take a two-pronged approach:

 

Identify and protect

With an effective information security management system (ISMS).

An ISMS is a system of processes, documents, technology and people that helps to manage, monitor, audit and improve your organisation’s information security. It helps you manage all your security practices in one place, consistently and cost-effectively.
 

 

ISMS benefits

Secures your information in all its forms.

Protects confidentiality, availability and integrity of data.

Offers organisation-wide protection.

Protects against evolving security threats.

 

ISO 27001 is the international standard that details the specification of an ISMS.

Respond and recover

With a robust business continuity management system (BCMS).

A BCMS is a comprehensive approach to organisational resilience. It enables organisations to update, control and deploy effective plans, taking into account organisational contingencies and capabilities, as well as the business needs (product- and service- requirements).

 

BCMS benefits

Maintains continuity of business operations.

Reduces the cost of business interruption.

Helps the organisation respond to any type of disaster.

Ensures a fast recovery after a breach.

 

ISO 22301 is the international standard that details the specification of a BCMS.

A cyber-resilient posture also helps you to:

  • Reduce financial losses;
  • Meet legal and regulatory requirements;
  • Improve your company’s culture and internal processes; and
  • Protect your company brand and reputation.

 

How we can help you develop cyber resilience

 

Conduct a Cyber Health Check

Easily identify your current cyber risks with our on-site cyber health check. You will receive a concise and detailed report describing your current cyber risk status and critical exposures, providing recommendations for reducing your cyber and compliance risks

 

Achieve a basic level of cyber security

By implementing five basic controls, you can protect your organisation from 80% of cyber attacks. This can be done by achieving compliance to Cyber Essentials.

 

Implement an ISMS

We can help you implement an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS quickly and within budget by drawing on our unique blend of practical information security know-how and technical expertise.

 

Implement a BCMS

Our experts will save you hours of uncertainty and trial and error, providing your organisation with the core competence and skills you need in order to implement a robust BCMS based on ISO 22301.

 

Conduct penetration tests

By implementing a regular penetration testing regime, you can continually measure and improve the security performance of your systems and networks. Regular penetration testing plays an essential part in any effective cyber security programme.

 

Get certified and achieve independent assurance

Our unique combination of cyber security know-how and track record in international management system standards means we can help you achieve dual certification to the international standards ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 through a single project.
