    How to become cyber resilient in an ever-changing threat landscape

    The critical objective of organizations today is to withstand significant cyber attacks and continue core operations. So, despite an attack, the organization carries on – patients are treated, power is generated, business flows.

    Our approach is based on the NIST framework where we:

    Develop the organizational understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, assets, data and capabilities.

    Develop and implement the appropriate safeguards to ensure delivery of critical infrastructure services.

    Develop and implement the appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event.

    Develop and implement the appropriate activities to take action regarding a detected cybersecurity event.

    Develop and implement the appropriate activities to maintain plans for resilience and to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity event.
