If you’ve been following this blog series (see part 1 and part 2), you know I’ve been sharing the story of Third Bank, a regional bank faced with a ransomware attack after its leader fell prey to a phishing email. The attack is in full swing, but Third Bank is no longer in the fight alone—it has called in a consultant with some powerful solutions to build the bank’s cyber resilience. 

Protect, detect, recover

Now that we have a clear picture of Third Bank’s cyber-resilience strategy (or lack thereof), it’s time to build a better one. Will, the consultant brought in during episode 4, lays out the key principles of effective cyber resilience. Third Bank needs solutions that protect data, detect and respond quickly to threats, and recover quickly with minimal data loss.

The aftermath

And now that Third Bank is truly cyber resilient, how have the team’s work lives changed? Did Blu make peace with running applications in the cloud? Is Saanvi’s help desk under control? Has Spence finally learned the absolute basics? You’ll have to watch to find out.

Third Bank made quite a few missteps in its cyber-resilience journey. Luckily for you, we’ve got a handy guide to keep history from repeating itself. Check out step-by-step tips and tricks to see what Third Bank could have done better throughout each phase of this ransomware attack. You’ll learn how to build your cyber resilience and prevent phishing emails from sending your IT into crisis mode.
