How businesses can build the resilience needed to withstand disruptive cyberattacks
Massive cybersecurity breaches have become almost commonplace, regularly grabbing headlines that alarm consumers and leaders. But for all of the attention such incidents have attracted in recent years, many organizations worldwide still struggle to comprehend and manage emerging cyber risks in an increasingly complex digital society. As our reliance on data and interconnectivity swells, developing resilience to withstand cyber shocks—that is, large-scale events with cascading disruptive consequences—has never been more important.
In the 2018 Global State of Information Security® Survey (GSISS), 40% of survey respondents from organizations using robotics or automation say the disruption of operations would be the most critical consequence of a cyberattack on those systems. Despite an awareness of disruptive cyber risks, companies often remain unprepared to deal with them.
Many key processes for uncovering cyber risks in business systems have been adopted by less than half of survey respondents.
