International. For BGH Tech Partner , cyber resilience serves multiple purposes, including risk management and the effective functioning of the organization during and after a cyberattack. That is why the experts of this company gave recommendations to take into account when planning a strategy.
According to the company "identify, prepare, protect and detect are some of the key components of a strategy that aims to ensure greater agility and flexibility to respond quickly to changes and adversities that may occur: understanding, identifying and practicing these aspects is key to promoting effective operation within the organization".
Recurring disruptions, economic uncertainty and increased sophistication of IT security threats led to a rethink of how organizations seek to ensure business continuity.
"They are no longer simply trying to avoid cyberattacks or crises (natural disasters, recessions, etc.), but to recognize that these situations will occur and that we must be prepared to cope with them. That is, you have to develop resilience."
In short, for the current stage characterized by the digital economy it is essential to ensure the availability of systems. Hence, companies included in their frequent speech cyber resilience (or cyber resilience), which is the ability of a computer system to recover quickly if it experiences adverse conditions.
"This approach requires continuous effort and includes prevention, incident response and recovery strategies. The focus is on proactively managing risks, threats, vulnerabilities and effects on critical information and supporting assets."
Andrés Alexander, VP Regional Services and Cloud Cluster at BGH Tech Partner, commented:
"Cyber licensing involves developing a company's ability to limit the effects of security incidents and continuously deliver the desired outcome despite a system failure or cyberattack. To deal with threats and vulnerabilities, organizations must prepare, develop defenses and have resources to mitigate potential failures," he said.
Key components according to BGH
Cyber resilience serves multiple purposes, such as data security, identifying the cause of threats, managing risks, and effectively operating the organization during and after a cyberattack. That's why the experts at BGH Tech Partner recommend taking into account the following when planning a strategy:
1. Identify and prepare: Check organizational assets and vulnerabilities and verify the readiness of existing IT and internal controls.
2. Protect: information, applications and systems from cyberattacks and unauthorized access.
3. Detect: continuously monitor network information and systems for anomalies and potential incidents.
4. Respond and recover: activate the incident response plan and take the necessary measures after a cyber crisis (identify the root cause, isolate the affected system or network, recover the affected data, etc.).
5. Adapt: learn from past events and implement knowledge to close potential gaps; Train and motivate employees to help deal with other potential attacks in the future.
Finally, Alexander concluded that, "in addition to improving a company's security posture and decreasing the risk of exposure of its critical infrastructure, cyber resilience also helps reduce financial losses and reputational damage. In this sense, the premise remains to foster a culture of cybersecurity that manages to face an ever-evolving threat landscape."
