In 2013, hackers compromised the credit card information of 40 million Target customers, triggering lawsuits and damaging the brand. In 2016, a massive data breach caused a $350 million drop in Yahoo’s selling price to Verizon. In 2017, “WannaCry” ransomware infected 230,000 computers in a single day—including those at UK hospitals that lost access to life-saving equipment.
Each month brings stories of more sophisticated and brazen attacks, as data theft, downed servers, and malware wreak havoc on organizations. A pressing question for every business leader is this: Would your enterprise withstand a major network breach?
Most networks are extremely vulnerable, warns Ray Rothrock, a cybersecurity expert who works with major companies and government organizations. In Digital Resilience, he provides a sweeping overview of today’s digital infrastructure, explaining both potential threats and powerful fixes—from blocking unauthorized entries to your network to containing malware to recovering quickly when inevitable breaches and human errors do occur.
Packed with an expert’s takes on what went wrong and right in numerous high-profile cases, the book explains:
• How the nature of the internet leaves so many networks exposed
• Which strategies are most effective, and most cost-effective, at securing networks
• How cybercriminals operate like particularly ruthless business competitors
• How to speak the language of technical managers
• How to design organizations and systems to better absorb disruptions
• Why networks should emulate the resilience principles found in physical and natural systems
• How to make a persuasive cost–benefit analysis of specific security and resilience measures
• How to embed digital resilience into training and operations
Written specifically for nontechnical executives and managers, this engaging, deeply researched book drives home the magnitude of the problem and offers sensible strategies for preparing an enterprise to thrive through any challenge ahead.
