Why Companies Need Cybersecurity and Cyber Resilience | Global Resilience Institute

Global Resilience Research Network (GRRN) partner, Paul Kirvan, recently shared some of his thoughts on why Companies now more than ever need cyber security & cyber resilience.

With his expertise in IT auditing, Paul shares that companies need cybersecurity and cyber-resilience plans to not only protect against attacks but also mitigate damage in the aftermath of a successful one.

The volume and velocity of cyber-attacks aren’t slowing any time soon. Companies today need to be ready and able to protect their data in the event of an attack, while also being prepared to handle fallout should a system be compromised. To keep your company running smoothly, teams must account for cybersecurity and cyber resilience.

Paul explains that cybersecurity is a form of protection for internet-connected systems such as hardware, software, and data from cyber threats. The practice is used by individuals and enterprises to protect against unauthorized access to data centers and other computerized systems. A major reason every organization should aim for cyber-resilience is that a cyber-resilient organization can better respond to and recover from future cyber attacks. It can also resume normal business operations more quickly and effectively.
