Six Steps On How To Build Cyber Resilience In Your Business
With many businesses using digital networks to transfer private information every day, organisations need to be aware of the risks they are exposing their assets to. No matter the size, location or type of business, all organisations are vulnerable to being attacked, hence the importance of cyber resilience.
As well as understanding the risks they may be exposing their assets to, and having methods in place to protect them, organisation need to understand how an attack may impact the rest of their business. For example, their operations, resources, time and overall infrastructure may be affected.
To help build cyber resilience, businesses should follow these six steps:
- Understand their critical data when sending assets over digital networks.
- Explain the importance of data security to employees and provide training on best practices.
- Develop a cyber incident response plan, detailing actions that should be taken in the event of a cyber-attack.
- Review the cyber security measures of all business partners and third parties.
- Work with regulators to ensure the most up to date and best practices are being followed.
- Make cyber resilience a top priority and focus on building resilience across the whole organisation.
