Cyber Resilience Services
Expertise You Need, For Successful Implementation
Cyber resilience is the ability to withstand the ramifications of a significant operational disruption resulting from a cyber intrusion or attack, while continuing the operation of essential processes and services, and rapid recovery of business activities to an acceptable level.
The organisation and structure of the different aspects of cyber resilience, requires the integration of very different components. In their own right, each of the functions of defending against a cyber intrusion are complex from identification through defence & response and to recovery. Some functions are more technology-heavy, some more procedure-centric, and some are very reliant on human skills.
The BDO provides a range of planning, design, architectural, and testing services for critical in-house functions of a Cyber Defence/Security Operations Centre, as well as the processes, procedures and training associated with it.
