Cyber resilience – checklist for CIO

News | 05.06.2024

The security end goal for all organizations is cyber resilience. Effective prevention and detection measures are, and will remain, a critical cornerstone of security strategies, but companies shouldn’t stop there. What matters is how the organization prepares for, withstands, responds to, and recovers from an incident. And this depends on people and processes as much as it does on technology.

When the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) updated its benchmark Cybersecurity Framework earlier this year, it added security governance – how security is implemented and managed through people and processes – as a strategic priority.

Effective security governance includes such things as consistent security policies and programs, a business leadership that understands risk and how to manage it, robust incident response strategies, investment in skills and training, and more. Many organizations are finding these goals difficult to achieve.

We recommend using the Cyber Resilience Checklist for CIOs, which is based on the latest version of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework.

The Cyber Resilience Checklist reflects the following steps:

  1. Preparing for the incident.
  2. Wichstanding the incident.
  3. Responding to the incident.
  4. Recovering from the incident.
