Cyber Insurance Isn't Cyber SecurityCyber Insurance Isn't Cyber Security
Increasingly, you only can buy cyber insurance when you prove that you have implemented comprehensive strategies to reduce your risk and mitigate the cost of cyber-attacks. In fact, it is more valuable to implement those cyber security strategies than to have the insurance policy.
A Near Miss is Not a SuccessA Near Miss is Not a Success
Luck and quick thinking are great in all aspects of life, but they aren’t business recovery strategies or risk mitigations. A near miss event should be treated very seriously, not as a success, and as a warning to bolster training, revise business recovery plans and implement additional risk mitigations.
Cutting the Wrong Corners During Recovery Cutting the Wrong Corners During Recovery
After a disruption or emergency occurs, it’s tempting to suspend some routine protocols, procedures and standards to recover as quickly as possible. It is often prudent and effective to do so but recovery teams should be mindful that cutting the wrong corners can increase risk, worsen the situation and increase recovery time.

The most serious risk to your organization isn’t malware, supply chain disruption, pandemic or any other event. Ironically, your biggest risk is your inability to adequately recover from multiple simultaneous disruptions. In the past few years, business and society have adapted to various ‘new normals’, and one of those is disruptions layered one on another and another.

Your organization has a choice regarding supplier resilience. You may assume that suppliers have sufficient plans and recovery procedures that will reduce the risk and impacts of disruptions to their operations. Or, you may choose to actively verify supplier resilience.
