Helping organizations build a whole-of-business response to crisis -level cyberattacks

  • 1.  Helping organizations build a whole-of-business response to crisis -level cyberattacks

    Posted Wed June 23, 2021 05:20 PM

    Organizations face a variety of crises every day, whether it be a physical crisis or a cyber crisis.  The effects of a cyber crisis can have a significant impact on the operations, brand, reputation, or financial standing of the business.  At the extreme, the cyber crisis may even threaten the very existence of the enterprise.

    I am excited to be leading a new service from IBM Security X-Force that can help companies prepare for these kinds of attacks and minimize impact and downtime - Cyber Crisis Management. 

    What is it? A whole-of-business response to a crisis-level cyberattack that escalates beyond traditional incident response and threatens the entirety of your organization. It includes a Program Assessment: a review of existing processes, interviews with key stakeholders, and recommendations for improvements; Plan and Playbook Development: a framework for "whole-of-business" response and; Tabletop and Simulation Exercises: tests business processes, procedures, and response to expose gaps.


    Why it matters? This service provides a framework to prepare for and respond to crisis level cyberattacks. It delivers a "whole-of-business" plan enabling distinct business functions to act in unison during a crisis while preserving reputation, brand, customer loyalty and fortifying business continuity.

    Please take a few minutes to read an article that I recently wrote on this topic.  https://lnkd.in/gDgii_d

    Cybersecurity is an important topic and we should think about developing this branch of internet security. I also read your article, you touched upon some really important aspects. Thank you ;)
