A-to-Zerto Glossary of Terms
Cyber resilience refers to the ability of businesses to mitigate the risk of damage to their data and operations and to bounce back unscathed once attacked. Instead of relying on a traditional disaster recovery plan, modern businesses need to transition to a cyber-resilient approach to ensure always-on service.
What Is Cyber Resilience ?
Today’s organizations know it is a matter of when, not if, they will experience a cyberattack. Cyber resilience is the ability to prepare for, respond to, and recover from a cyber-attack once it occurs.
Cyber resilience addresses this issue by looking past prevention to consistently ensure the integrity of your critical data to mitigate risk. This type of resiliency requires a recovery solution that guarantees access to all your data, without gaps or data loss, in the event of an attack so your operation can get back up and running without delays.
Some organizations use security frameworks that provide time-tested best practices, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF), which is based on five core functions to achieve cyber resilience: identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover.
Cyber resilience addresses the issue by going beyond prevention alone to consistently ensure the integrity of your critical data and mitigate risk. This type of resilience requires a recovery solution that guarantees access to all your data, without gaps or data loss, in the event of attack so your operation can get back up and running without delays.
Data Recovery and Cyber Resilience
Cybercrimes are designed to bypass preventative measures—and will evolve to keep doing so. Data recovery is the backbone of cyber resilience. Recovering from cyberattacks requires a modern data management and recovery solution that protects across multiple platforms, including on-premises, cloud, tiered storage, and SaaS applications. An effective recovery plan means your organization can avoid downtime, business disruption, and huge financial hits.
An effective recovery plan means your organization can avoid downtime, business disruption, and huge financial hits when malicious actors attempt to compromise your IT environment. As such, IT resilience is clearly a key component of cyber resilience.
