Cyber resilience extends beyond cybersecurity attacks that disrupt business operations. It is the convergence of security and disaster recovery and takes into account other factors such as supply chain disruption, attacks on critical infrastructure, epidemics, market fluctuations, power outages, and natural disasters to form part of business resilience.

Cyber resilience gives organizations the ability to anticipate risks associated with any form of disruption or event having a negative affect on their cyber-enabled services, says Kris Lovejoy, global practice leader for security and resiliency at Kyndryl.

Lovejoy defines cyber resilience as the fusion between cybersecurity, business continuity and disaster recovery. Cyber resilience gives organizations the ability to protect against these risks through detection and response, as well as the ability to recover, Lovejoy adds.

"Cyber resilience is not just about cybersecurity. It is about any and all events that can impact your digitally enabled services," Lovejoy says.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Lovejoy discusses:

  • Rethinking cyber resilience in today's context;
  • How a good resilience plan ensures better disaster recovery;
  • The role of CISOs in securing critical business processes.

Kris Lovejoy, an internationally recognized leader in the field of cybersecurity and privacy, leads Kyndryl's security and resiliency practice. Previously, Lovejoy worked at EY where she was the global consulting cybersecurity leader responsible for the organization's multi-billion dollar security practice. Lovejoy holds U.S. and EU patents the area of risk management, was named Consulting Magazine's "Top Woman Technology Leader" in 2020, and has served as a member of the World Economic Forum's cybersecurity committee.
