In today’s business landscape, technology is deeply integrated into every aspect of an organisation’s core business process. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that agile companies around the globe are constantly pursuing technological innovation and aiming to enhance their cyber maturity capabilities.

The importance of IT infrastructure in day-to-day business operations is critical.

Devices, networks, and users are all crucial to keeping an organisation running. Having a fully comprehensive cyber resilience program in place is therefore of the utmost importance for any organisation aiming to succeed.

We are seemingly bombarded with news stories reporting cybersecurity attacks, from data breaches and compromised networks to ransomware and phishing. All these cyber-attacks highlight how vulnerable organizations are, especially when an acceptable level of cybersecurity maturity hasn’t been reached.

While developing a strong cyber resilience program and implementing a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy within your organisation cannot create a bulletproof vest against cyber-attacks, it will undoubtedly play a crucial role in cushioning the impact of an incident on the business and its valuable data.

Achieving a mature level of cyber resilience ensures that individuals and enterprises remain largely protected against threats, as they have understood the technical weaknesses within their systems and have actively implemented solutions to minimise the exposure of an unfortunate cyber-attack.

As technology solutions become ever more sophisticated, powerful and value-generating; cyber risks become increasingly more precise and on-point. To avoid potential threats to the organization, a well elaborated cybersecurity framework to strengthen the cyber resilience program of the business should never be overlooked.

Keep in mind that cybersecurity should be a crucial pillar for all businesses, regardless of size, to operate efficiently. Cyber risks are not only a matter of concern for large entities, but every single business who has important data of which they are responsible for. Needless to reiterate, those organisations with mature cybersecurity capabilities have a powerful competitive advantage.

Next-generation GRC technology can be a powerful partner when looking to develop a mature cybersecurity program. Look for a technology solution capable of delivering full coverage of key disciplines in cyber resilience – from third-party, cyber and IT risk management to information security and regulatory compliance.

Leverage key value drivers like organisation-wide scalability, cyber maturity benchmarking, vendor assessments, advanced analytics, real-time monitoring, and powerful risk quantification methods to ensure smart investment and risk-aware decision-making.
