Cyber Resilience and Its Importance for Your Business

Protect yourself from online attacks that threaten your identity, your files, your system, and your financial well-being.

What Is Cyber Resilience?

Computer Security Resource Center defines cyber resiliency as the ability to anticipate, withstand, recover from and adapt to adverse conditions, stresses, attacks or compromises on systems that use or are enabled by cyber resources.

Given today’s increasingly evolving threat landscape, cyber resilience has become an important factor in determining the success of an organization. Cyber resilience helps businesses defend against cybercrimes, mitigates risks and severity of attacks, and enables business continuity. A cyber-resilient business is well prepared to tackle cybersecurity incidents and can effectively respond to and quickly recover when such events do occur.

What Is the Difference Between Cybersecurity and Cyber Resilience?

Cybersecurity deals with strengthening an organization’s defenses to prevent cybercriminals and malicious programs from compromising its network, data and IT infrastructure. It encompasses strategies and actions to keep threat actors at bay and protect company assets from loss, theft or damage.

While cybersecurity is an essential part of an organization’s security strategy, protection from sophisticated cyberattacks is never guaranteed. This is where cyber resilience comes in. Cyber resilience encompasses a wider umbrella, including deploying policies, solutions and clearly defining the steps that need to be taken when measures such as cybersecurity fail.

Cyber resilience is a broader concept covering business continuity, securing critical business processes, identifying potential threat vectors, managing risks, minimizing the severity of attacks and implementing procedures to withstand cybersecurity incidents. Cyber resilience enables an organization to continue normal business operations without any interruption during and after disruptive events such as cyberattacks or technical failures. When done right, cyber resilience enables an organization to remain operational despite significant cyber disruptions.

Key Components of a Cyber Resilience Framework

Given the unprecedented surge in cybercrimes, most businesses would agree that cyberattacks are no longer a matter of “if” but “when.” As such, your business…

Ransomware Attacks are Hitting Small Business. And Some of Them are Military Subcontractors – Mother Jones

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

On June 3—sandwiched between snippets of data from a US technology testing firm and a Brazilian maritime logistics company—internal information from an Albuquerque-based small business was posted to the dark web blog of an established ransomware group. Though this would be unwelcome news for any business of any size, this one especially caught the attention of Brett Callow, a ransomware expert at cybersecurity firm Emsisoft.

That’s because the company, Sol Oriens, LLC, is a Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration subcontractor. Its employees work on sensitive matters related to nuclear weapons and energy.

The National Nuclear Security Administration is the government agency responsible for maintaining and securing the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile. It works on nuclear applications for the US military, along with other highly sensitive missions.

The attack was the work of REvil, a ransomware group that’s been in the headlines in recent weeks. It was accused by the FBI of hacking JBS, the world’s largest meatpacker, just ahead of Memorial Day weekend. The gang’s blog is full of victim data. In some ways, Sol Oriens, LLC is just one name among many. There’s no indication yet that the company was targeted because of the work it does, rather than just being another potential pay day for hackers.

But the sensitive nature of its work, and the connections between its employees and some of the most tightly guarded organizations in the US, has people like Callow worried.

Sol Oriens, LLC, may not be a major contractor, but its employees have connections to key strategic national security entities, such as Sandia National Laboratories, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“Ransomware represents a significant risk to national security,” he says. “While the actors may simply be financially motivated, there is no way of knowing where the information they steal may end up.”

For now, the…
