What is a cyber resilience program?
A cyber resilience program is a comprehensive approach to managing and mitigating cyber risks and ensuring the continuity of critical business operations in the face of cyber threats. It involves a combination of risk management, security controls, incident response planning, and business continuity planning to help organizations withstand and recover from cyber attacks.
How do you create a cyber resilience strategy?
The need for an easily understood and common language about a utility’s network segmentation and how critical assets are protected is vital. Network Perception provides such common language and represents the concept of criticality through its pioneering network topology visualization. Utilities can strengthen their cyber resilience and eliminates blind spots in three steps:
- Automatically generate a network topology map
- Assess your vulnerability exposure
- Ensure defense-in-depth strategy
Difference between cybersecurity and resilience
Cybersecurity is a subset of cyber resilience, focused on protecting against cyber attacks, while cyber resilience encompasses a wider range of measures to ensure the continuity of critical business operations in the face of cyber threats. Cyber resilience acknowledges that cyber attacks are not a matter of if, but when, and seeks to ensure that organizations are prepared to respond effectively to cyber incidents, rather than relying solely on prevention.
