Why must every organisation prepare for a cyber crisis?
Cyberattacks are predictable surprises. Is your organisation prepared?
AT ISTARI, we believe preparedness is the cornerstone of resilience.
That experience has taught us two key truths:
A crisis is not a static event but a dynamic period where an organisation can do much right or wrong.
Neither is a crisis an IT event. Business is impacted far more than what is typically expected.
In a crisis, organisations face the unthinkable. When an attack occurs, every second makes a difference. Those that do not have a cyber crisis preparedness plan in place risk severe consequences.
Investing time and resources in a planned response is imperative to help your organisation be prepared to respond appropriately and promptly and communicate clearly.
Evidence suggests that how companies respond to a cyber attack greatly influences how investors react. A plan can make the difference between an organisation surviving or thriving.
Moreover, cyber crisis management can be the catalyst for building general resilience and preparedness.
