The threat of cyberattacks isn’t going away, but businesses are becoming better prepared for them and increasingly resilient, according to the news website Supply Chain Dive.
Despite the rise of cyberattacks in 2017, data breaches were still behind-the-scenes disruptions in most cases, with few organizations willing to involve the boardroom. Supply Chain Dive says this year, better understanding of the cost and impact of cyberattack may be changing attitudes.
“The companies that minimized the potential damage executed a well-practiced plan and informed the public in short order with straightforward facts and data. This approach required less damage control and instead provided the companies an opportunity to showcase their ability to handle a crisis with action and resilience,” Brian Vosburgh, a chief strategist on Booz Allen Hamilton’s Cyber4Sight.
