Cyber resilience, the ability to maintain business operations in the face of unending and evolving cybersecurity threats, is becoming increasingly important. The rise of remote work means employees are accessing business-critical applications and networks from a wide variety of locations — from home offices to restaurants to coffee shops — as well as across more devices, such as personal and work-supplied devices. This increased worker footprint leaves companies vulnerable to more cybersecurity threats.
But not all companies have the time or internal talent to achieve cyber resilience on their own. Time, talent, and experience varies by company, and businesses need to take a hard look at their internal resources and establish an approach to achieve cyber resilience. This could be a do-it-yourself approach, one in partnership with a managed services provider (MSP), or a combination of the two. For example, a company may be able to detect immediately when a cybersecurity threat emerges but need outside help in responding and recovering.
