Why Are Cyberattacks So Destructive?
Most organizations have plans for fires, earthquakes, and other traditional outage scenarios. A scenario where every device in every data center, office building, and work location is purposely and simultaneously destroyed has rarely been considered, but it is happening more every day. Emerging cyberattacks are increasing in their focus on both digital and physical destruction. Further, conventional recovery practices can actually do more the exacerbate the problem than they do to mitigate it.
In this session, the speakers will share perspectives and real-world experiences on the amplified impacts of cyberattacks, the unique challenges they present, and illustrate how new approaches and solutions are helping improve organizational resilience.
