A Journey in Organizational Cyber Resilience Part 1: The Human Factor

Organizational resilience is key to good business. Sometimes confused with enterprise resilience, we use the former term instead because it applies to a business or agency of any size. Let’s take a look at how to improve employees’ cybersecurity posture by providing practical ideas they can add to their everyday habits. The result: cyber resilience and keeping your data safer. 

This series will guide you in your journey through organizational resilience. First, we need to look at the human factor. In particular, that means human vulnerabilities, social engineering and threat actors. 

But, up front, remember the difference between ‘organizational’ and ‘enterprise’ resilience. The cyber resilience framework that will come out of this series will be applicable to an organization of any size. The ‘what’ is the same, no matter how big, small or complex the organization is. The ‘how’ is different, due to scale. Together, the concepts in this series provide a loose framework that works for everybody. Even a single person can improve their personal safety by employing these ideas into their everyday habits.

Next question to answer: what is going to get covered in the series? A lot of issues: business continuity, crisis management, disaster recovery, training and testing, governance, privacy, security-by-design, cyber hygiene, the data life cycle, supply chains and third parties, and now, the human element. 

If you can assess, design, test and build an organizational resilience program well, your incident response posture will be in a good position to manage a cyber attack. And if you are really good, you may reach that nirvana ..
