Cybersecurity threats are evolving, footprints are expanding, and attackers have become even more sophisticated. The threat landscape is expanding as companies extend technology to accommodate employee, customer, and vendor needs. Organizations must now consider the impact from service disruption, data destruction and ransomware, and erosion of customer confidence in terms of operational cost, regulatory penalties, and brand or reputational damage.

To operate, organizations require the reliability of their information technology systems and IT/OT managed assets. Well-designed cybersecurity programs defend against and withstand most hacks but, despite best efforts, a motivated hacker will break into a system they target. There is no doubt, no question. What happens next depends on incident planning and preparedness. Cybersecurity Resilience builds on good cybersecurity programs by addressing demands for business continuity, information protection, and crisis communications.

  • How will business operations and customer service continue until technology is restored?
  • What did the hackers take, was sensitive data encrypted, and is it usable by these criminals?
  • How, when, and what is communicated to leadership, employees, customers, and the community and by whom?

ITEGRITI designs and implements programs that help companies avoid hacks, detects breaches when they occur, minimize business disruption during a cybersecurity event, and reduce incident recovery time. We work with organizations to align cybersecurity programs with enterprise risks and first consider existing security hardware, software, and security/compliance controls. We help companies establish and evaluate specific control objectives and internal controls, measure operational effectiveness, and establish an improvement plan that includes actionable remediation activities.

Through our strategic partnership with HCL Technologies, and a network of 150 alliance partners, we implement the items selected by our clients for remediation in terms of policy and procedure, hardware and software implementation or configuration, and internal control and audit program to measure, manage and report ongoing control effectiveness.

10 Essential Steps to Cyber Resilience as Hackers Target Critical Infrastructure

Cybercriminals depend on teams, bots, harvested intelligence, brute force, and relentless targeting. Sometimes, an attacker is fortunate to encounter just dumb luck. Regardless of the skill level or support, a motivated hacker will ultimately succeed in compromising a set of their targets.

How can you make your organization more resilient? Here is a checklist to achieve these goals.
