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
