Discussion Forum - April 19, 2018 - Cyber Resilience
Today, critical business information is increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks that are designed to cripple your business or permanently destroy your IT systems.
With sophisticated tools and resources at their disposal, cyber criminals may have more information about your security defense systems than you have about their attack capability. The alarming number of breaches at organizations thought to have impregnable defenses is making security experts believe that breaches are an inevitable reality. Organizations require a unified cyber resilience lifecycle approach to help identify and prioritize critical assets, determine risk, and establish resilient defense and recovery capabilities.
Join us, as IBM will walk you through the partnership approach, helping you protect your organization.
