How do companies achieve cyber resilience in a post-pandemic world?
Cyber resilience is the ability to prepare for cyber-attacks, respond to and recover from these attacks. It has become a new security norm over the past few years as traditional cybersecurity measures are no longer enough to protect companies from persistent and brutal attacks.
As per Mimecast’s The State of Email Security Report 2020, 31% of UK businesses experienced data loss due to a lack of cyber resilience preparedness.
Cyber resilience helps a company defend against and limit the severity of attacks, protect against cyber risks, and ensure quick recovery to Business as Usual (BAU).
Build Cyber Resilience to Survive Cyberthreats
Building cyber resilience is imperative for surviving threats today and in the future. A strong cyber resilience strategy to provide a unified approach combining cybersecurity with data protection. In April 2020 a multinational IT services company confirmed that its network was hit by Maze ransomware that encrypted its servers. In September 2020, a crippling malware attack brought down the computer systems of one of the largest hospital chains in the United States.
According to a recent survey by IDC, the average cost of downtime exceeds $200,000 per hour. The first step will be to build a detailed relaunch map according to the countries you are operating in and the target audience. Its primary objective will be to determine recovery opportunities. While businesses are having a tough time facing challenges associated with digital transformation such as Cloud migration, shadow IT, shortage of skills, and organizational silos.
“They are less likely to report negative outcomes or impacts from breaches, and more likely to make a faster recovery”, according to the DCMS. The study found that around a third (32%) of businesses have insured against cyber risks while 85% of all businesses failed to review the cybersecurity risks.
Benefits of Cyber Resilience:
It’s critical for companies to build their cyber resilience capabilities. UK organizations have become more resilient to data breaches and cyber-attacks. The recent study put together by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS) shows that organizations have become more resilient to breaches and attacks over time. A Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) report showed that small firms in the UK suffer close to 10,000 cyber-attacks a day. Preparation is key to survival. This means that it’s better to start working on a strategy to reduce the impact.
Here are some of the benefits of cyber resilience:

- It helps you improve your culture and internal processes
- It protects your brand and business reputation
