Cyber Security and Business Continuity

In the last few years we have continued to see an increase in the sophistication and volume of cyber threats. A 42% increase in targeted attacks in 2012 (as reported by Symantec, in its 2013 Internet Security Threat Report).  The range and types of threats vary greatly. In June 2013, InfoSecurity magazine listed the top five specific IT cyber security threats as:

·         Data Breach

·         Malware

·         DDoS (Distributed Denial of Services)

·         Mobile Threats

·         Industrialization of fraud

DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. A malicious hacker uses a DDoS attack to make a computer resource (i.e. – website, application, e-mail, voicemail, network) stop responding to legitimate users. The malicious hacker does this by commanding a fleet of remotely-controlled computers to send a flood of network traffic to the target. The target becomes so busy dealing with the attacker’s requests that it doesn’t have time to respond to legitimate users’ requests. That can cause the target system to stop responding, resulting in long delays and outages.

All threats require different preventive and response approaches.  An Ipsos survey for Lloyds Risk Index 2013 indicated that cyber risk is the third biggest concern for CEOs when assessing organizational threats, moving up nine spots from the previous year’s ranking of 12th.

Organizations should approach cyber security as they do any other business risk. Company leadership is responsible for identifying and controlling the cascading financial, reputational, and operational impacts, as well as ensuring effective and accurate crisis communications throughout all stakeholder-facing business areas.  By integrating Business Continuity response into your existing leadership response strategy, you’ll ensure leadership has the information necessary to assess and control the overarching business impacts, while also ensuring IT has leadership’s support in rolling out selected response strategies.

The purpose of Business Continuity Planning is to develop procedures designed to enable your business to maintain “at least a minimum level of service” to assure there will be a business to recover, in the event of an unexpected interruption.
