Cyber resilience refers to the ability to defend against attacks while continuing to do “business as usual” successfully. The current crisis, with remote/home working becoming the norm as opposed to the exception, has further extended the breadth and attack surface of our digital eco-systems, and has raised significant challenges for business and policy leaders.
Before the current Covid-19 crisis, studies revealed that indirect cyber-attacks via third parties made up 40% percent of all security breaches, while on average, existing cybersecurity programmes only protect about 60% of an organization’s extended ecosystem. These findings, placed in the new context, present a clear call to action: organisations must protect their extended ecosystems.
But what does this mean in practice? The most successful approaches taken by industry leaders have been based on collaboration and partnership management, underpinned by the sharing of cyberthreat intelligence (CTI) and use of collaborative technologies
The objective of this roundtable is to discuss effective approaches taken by industry leaders to secure their extended ecosystem, taking into account the lessons learned during the COVID-19 crisis, to ensure that organizations emerge even more resilient.
