The secret to successful data risk management
How long would it take your business to get back to normal operations after a security breach or disaster?
The ideal scenario would be complete resilience – that is, no time at all. Your customers expect a stable and reliable environment in order to do business with you, so business continuity is critical both internally and externally. While current technologies may seem complex, they can help you achieve the goal of complete resilience.
Assess your organization's readiness
The first step in building resilience is to conduct an impact assessment to find out how well your organization would perform during critical situations. Some examples include:
- A customer/user data breach occurs
- The network fails and key data is lost
- An employee gains unauthorized access to critical information
- A pandemic affects 30% or more of your workforce
Develop a business continuity plan to ensure security
Less than 30% of Canadian organizations have a business continuity plan to guide employee actions during a security breach or crisis.
If you are like most Canadian organizations and you do not have a business continuity plan in place, your organization could face prolonged business interruption if confronted with an unexpected emergency.
A detailed guide of what to do, including assigned responsibilities, is vital to risk mitigation.
