Cyber Resilience is a top priority
The objective of cyber resilience is to maintain the entity's ability to deliver the intended outcome continuously at all times. This means doing so even when regular delivery mechanisms have failed, such as during a crisis or after a security breach.
Unlike cyber security, which is designed to protect systems, networks and data from cyber crimes, cyber resilience is designed to prevent systems and networks from being derailed in the event that security is compromised.
Cyber resilience helps businesses to recognize that attackers have the advantage of innovative tools, element of surprise, target and can be successful in their attempt - this is the definition of an "Assume Breach" mindset. This concept helps business to prepare, prevent, respond and successfully recover to the intended secure state
Cyber resilience is specifically focused on ensuring that an organization has the capacity to be effective despite being the victim of a cyber incident.
Challenges to cyber resilience
Dissolving network perimeter
The rapid adoption of cloud and distributed computing is making cybersecurity increasingly complex.
Expanding attack surface
Hyper-connectivity results in new vulnerabilities across systems and applications, creating all new security risks.
Increasing scalability challenges
Failure to shift to a risk-based approach leads to security controls that can't rapidly adapt.
3 steps to better cyber resilience
For organizations focused on improving their cyber resilience, Illumio identifies where they are most exposed and, through Zero Trust Segmentation, drastically reduces both their exposed attack surface and the ability of an attacker to spread.
This set of capabilities enables customers to manage their risk better and limit the impact a single incident can have on their ability to function, resulting in improved resilience.
