Increasingly sophisticated cyber threats pose the biggest risk. Upcoming changes with DORA and NIS2 require the financial sector and critical services companies to improve cyber resilience. A well-executed resilience strategy will prepare a business for any unexpected events, and provide a level of competitive advantage over organisations that have failed to make a plan. The goal is to adapt to changing conditions and then recover rapidly from any disruption caused.
Increasing threats from cyberattacks, natural disaster and economic uncertainty demand a new approach to enterprise-wide resilience. Ergo provides a strategic management approach, combining the best in business continuity solutions with robust IT security.
Aligning with management best-practice and controls that adhere to international security standards, we devise risk-based strategies that cover every part of your business, from the executive leadership team to supply chain partners and customers. We place particular emphasis on transitioning from a plan to a fully operational strategy that can be tested and improved.
Ergo’s road to resilience
Strategic steps for safeguarding your business:
Identify critical assets and the best way to protect them. More than firewalls and intrusion detection systems, it’s about creating a culture where every employee understands the risks and their role in mitigating them. Regular awareness training is embedded in the strategy.
Systems should be designed with security in mind, combing layers of protection with real-time monitoring and AI-powered threat detection that makes the business proactive rather than reactive. Early identification of an event is the best form of defence.
The ability to respond to an incident, to prevent malicious code from spreading, for example, is paramount, along with an ability to fix any vulnerability that the event has exposed to make sure it never happens again.
Applying business appropriate Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) will be key to any disaster recovery strategy, along with business continuity plans that
rapidly recover mission-critical systems and avoid extended business interruption.
Regularly testing of business continuity and disaster recovery plans will help evaluate the strength of your cybersecurity posture. Continuous self-assessment is important for staying ahead of emerging threats and driving a process of continuous improvement.
