HOW TO SURVIVE A CYBER SECURITY ATTACK
Companies need to take more account of the serious cyber risks in today's world and recognise that attacks will increase in severity, scope and frequency as the digitisation of the whole way we work progresses.
How to resist? By becoming cyber-resilient
Cyber resilience is the ability of a company to survive a digital attack, safeguarding its business continuity even during a crisis, i.e. keeping the most important business processes active.
Here are the 3 key steps to become a cyber resilient company and best survive cyber attacks:
- Your company's data is important, manage your backup systems correctly
In case of a malware attack which prevents normal access to work, how can the company carry out its activities normally? In this case, the backup.
I backup and the disaster recovery (recovery) are the main tools for repairing computer damage, whatever its cause. They are therefore important elements of a functioning security plan and ransomware management.
- You need to be fully aware of your business assets, as every production process using technology contains sensitive data
The starting point is identify critical business systemsThese are the most sensitive areas that require a higher level of protection and their connections must be analysed: as they are interdependent on each other, the interruption of one system could also block others.
Only by knowing the weak points of your computer network can you assess the risks and respond in the event of an attack.
- Cyber attacks are growing day by day, so it is important to invest in your cyber resilience
To build a resilience strategy, you need to know your company's vulnerabilities, prevent attacks and insure yourself against economic damage. Unfortunately, the more digital work becomes, the more cyber attacks will increase even for small and medium-sized enterprises. Investment in cyber security is no longer just a matter of prevention, but a real necessity.
Only companies that have realised the serious cyber risks of today and have taken the necessary countermeasures will avoid the nasty surprises that the digitisation of work brings.
