Cyber resilience during (and after) COVID-19

COVID-19 remains a grave threat, but governments, businesses and people around the world have demonstrated how resilient they are. As societies begin to emerge and attempt to decipher what life post-COVID – or with COVID – will look like, developing resilience, and especially cyber resilience, will continue to be critical.

Cyber resilience is the ability to continuously deliver results, despite disruptions to the flow of digital information. Think of it as digital fitness —the ability to absorb punches and get back on your feet, no matter what threatens. Every day, cyber resilience is challenged, and not just by cyber criminals and security threats. COVID-19 represents a “perfect storm” of increased cyber security risks, but also increased legal and regulatory risk as well.
