1 Executive Summary
Ensuring the availability of digital services in the event of a cyber-attack is a fundamental part of a company’s cybersecurity approach. Organizations need to prepare for being the victim of an attack. The chance of being hacked is significantly higher than in years previous, with the size of the company having little to no influence on the probability of being targeted.
Ransomware attacks, for instance, can shut down an entire enterprise and the attackers will attempt to blackmail you to pay a ransom to regain access to your data. Classic attacks via malware or hijacking of a privileged user’s account can lead to data breaches that threaten the very existence of your business, if all your customer data or other sensitive data is leaked and made publicly available.
For such worst-case scenarios, a concrete plan and organizational structure must be defined, to ensure that the impact of the attack and the harm to the company can be minimized.
