The dictionary defines "resilience" as "an ability to
recover from, or adjust easily to, misfortune or change." For
most people, this means that if they find a problem, a vendor can
simply wipe their systems clean, restore them from a backup, and
everything starts over. Voilà! They’ve recovered from a breach.
Except it just doesn’t work like that.
The problem with the scorched-earth approach to resiliency is that
no efforts have been taken to address the underlying issues that
caused the breach in the first place.
At FireEye, cyber resilience is much more than prevention or
detection technology. It’s the ability to prevent, assess, prioritize
and mitigate risks. What threats are most dangerous to your business?
What kinds of data loss will have the worst effect in terms of costs
to the bottom line and the organization’s reputation?
Cyber resiliency means having the answer to these questions and
more. It means knowing how to manage processes and costs in a way that
keeps your security activities efficient and effective. It means
having a continued focus on how to best protect what matters most
relentlessly – now, and in the long run.
The Role of Innovation
Innovation is critical to achieving cyber resilience. Today’s threat
landscape is constantly evolving, and a company’s cyber security
posture must innovate fast enough to effectively combat the techniques
of even the most sophisticated cyber attackers.
And technology alone is not enough. We need humans and technology
working seamlessly together, in harmony, to address the most pressing
cyber security issues.
This requires real-time knowledge of the threat landscape and a
security partner who combines technology, threat intelligence and
To find out more about the relationship between cyber resiliency and innovation, join the FireEye Cyber Resilience Virtual Summit, Oct. 22 to Oct. 24, 2018.
