Given the reality of the cyber threat landscape, you need to determine the tools you need to mitigate and respond to inevitable cyber attacks. Unfortunately, while both the aggressiveness and sophistication of cyber attacks have accelerated, defensive capabilities have been relatively slow to evolve and respond (1).
Darren Thayre, Partner in the Digital, Technology and Analytics Practice for Asia Pacific at Oliver Wyman, mentioned that typical cyber security discussions are often absent when organizations initially strategize on cloud implementation, a process normally driven by developers or infrastructure demands (2).
Many victim organizations and those working diligently on defensive improvements still lack the fundamental security controls and capabilities to either prevent breaches or to minimize the damages and consequences of an inevitable compromise.
This is one of the topics highlighted in the report: Advancing Cyber Risk Management: From Security to Resilience, a new report from Marsh & McLennan Insights developed in partnership with Mandiant, a FireEye company.
