This session will start with an introduction about what Cyber Resilience is and it is an essential capability to have in your organization. Our speakers will focus on one of the found goals of a cyber resilient enterprise: recover. They will cover what it’s like when your first gate of protection has already been broken through and you are trying to survive. The intruders are already in your network and have even compromised your Active Directory forest. The use case -from real life events- will touch base as well on other Cyber Resilience goals like the ability to withstand the attack and then evolve your organization with the right layers of resilience at hand.

The session is brought to you by ISSA Cyber Resilience SIG and the sponsor is Semperis.
