From Prevention to Reality: Building a Cyber Resilient Organization

Strong cybersecurity is critical in the digital economy to create trusted, resilient organizations. But as the pace of digital transformation accelerates, the attack surface and vendor footprint within organizations has grown rapidly. Faced with greater exposure and more sophisticated cyber attacks, it is no longer possible for security leaders to “prevent” cyber breaches.

Security leaders must shift their focus from prevention to resilience to thrive against greater exposure and more sophisticated cyber attacks. A focus on cyber resilience empowers organizations to build stronger cybersecurity programs, protect assets and reputation, and thrive in this new paradigm. But where do you start? How do you know what KPIs to measure? How do you compare against your peers?

Join us for this executive roundtable discussion where industry leaders will explore the changing landscape towards cyber resilience and how to succeed.

In this session we will discuss:

  • Why proactive cyber resilience needs to be the new paradigm for cybersecurity leaders
  • What elements to incorporate into your performance measurements
  • How to take your first steps in building a cyber resilient organization

Key takeaways include:

  • Ideas for integrating proactive approaches into your cybersecurity strategy
  • Tips for utilizing internal and third-party data for performance metrics
  • An introduction to how Security Ratings and advanced cyber risk analytics can play a key role in your cyber resilience strategy
