Protect your data from the inside out
At one time, having a cybersecurity strategy that stopped the enemy at the gate by fortifying the perimeter provided effective protection. But remote work, bring-your-own-device policies, and a proliferation of endpoints add hundreds or even thousands of gates to defend. It’s more than already-overwhelmed IT teams can handle, making it easier than ever for cybercriminals to succeed in their attacks. Here’s how you can build a cyber resilience strategy that keeps pace with ever-evolving criminal tactics.
For many organizations, it’s easy to forget that the goal of cyber resilience isn’t to prevent intrusions; it’s to prevent intrusions from disrupting your organization’s business operations by protecting its most valuable asset—its data. When your data becomes your primary focus, it’s easier to tackle your cyber resilience needs. Your first step is to understand your current state by working through the following questions:
By answering these questions, you create the skeleton for a data-centric cyber resilience plan that will help your organization be prepared for cyberattacks.
A good cyber resilience strategy is all about building in data protection and data-centric security instead of bolting it on as an afterthought. Following these five steps can help you protect your data and bounce back quickly if an attack does occur.
