‘Cyber resilience’ is the new boardroom priority

Cyber Resilience in the new boardroom Priority

“Traditional cyber security is now inadequate for today’s threat landscape and must be superseded by ‘cyber resilience’, demanding more vigorous action from company boardrooms.”

Cyber resilience has been around now for about 4 – 5 years, I remember writing articles about it for my previous business.   The situation has not changed.   Cyber crime is running rampant and the security of a business can only do so much.

The resilience of a business means that all of the business components that make the business unique are protected and can be moved no matter what the underlying systems are doing.
