If You’ve Been Hacked and Blame IT, You’re Only 30% Correct

In the digital age, blaming the IT department for a cybersecurity breach is a common knee-jerk reaction. However, the reality is far more complex. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility and responding to the IT situation in isolation might mean you’re only 30% correct.

Understanding the Whole Picture

When a breach occurs, it’s essential to recognise that effective cybersecurity extends beyond IT infrastructure. You have customers, regulators, and staff to inform, and critical services that must continue, with or without IT. A cyber-attack can take a business’s IT system down for months, not hours. Communication and Business Continuity Planning (BCP) play crucial roles in a cyber response that protects your organisation.

Communication Is Key

Effective communication is the cornerstone of any cybersecurity response. From notifying your employees of what’s occurred and what their part is in the response; to ensuring customers, government agencies, and customers are abreast of the situation and the recovery strategy.

Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Matters

Cybersecurity incidents can disrupt business operations, making BCP an integral component of your defence strategy. A well-thought-out BCP ensures that your organisation can quickly adapt and continue essential functions during and after a cyber-attack. This could involve manual systems and processes.
