Only 42% of survey respondents are confident their organization could recover from a major cyber event without impacting their business.

Prioritize cyber resilience to meet the increasing threat of cyber disruption

Cyber resilience enables an organization to continue to function with the least amount of disruption in the face of cyber attacks. It is an integrated approach that brings together cybersecurity, business continuity and network resilience of enterprises to ensure they continue to function during and after cyber incidents.

The number of cyber attacks and their business impact have grown significantly in recent years. Cyber breaches are no longer a question of “if” but “when.”

The cost of a data breach is huge. Breaches can result in financial loss, business disruptions, damage of reputation and regulatory actions. Early detection and quick recovery allows organizations to mitigate risk and business impact of cyber disruptions as well as enable continuous business operations.

Cyber resilience lifecycle

IDENTIFY risks and vulnerabilities

Pinpoint business-critical applications and their associated risks, analyze the potential business impact of disruption and assess business continuity and disaster recovery readiness.

PROTECT your applications and data

Safeguard business-critical applications and data before they are exploited, using air-gapped data protection and immutable storage technologies.

DETECT data corruption and configuration anomalies

Quickly find changes in system configuration files using automated testing and verification of backed-up data to help trigger rapid response and reduce downtime.

RESPOND to changes in configuration and data

Address unauthorized changes in configurations and data using a dashboard that provides real-time visibility into open vulnerabilities and RPO/RTO deviations.

RECOVER access to critical applications and data

Rebuild mission-critical business applications, restore data from air-gapped backup and rapidly and reliably recover IT systems from cyber incidents.

The IBM cyber resilience approach uses advanced technologies and best practices to help assess risks, prioritize and protect business-critical applications and data, and rapidly recover IT during and after a cyber attack.
