Companies need to get serious about cybersecurity, and the best way to do that is to simulate an attack. Leaders from the World Economic Forum, the Boston Consulting Group, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and other groups addressed the problem of cyberattacks against businesses. It’s not easy to communicate a clear solution for a complex problem, but the authors are convincing in the need for procedures, protocols and actionable practices in the event of a cybersecurity breach.
In this summary, you will learn
Why cyberattacks are a real and growing problem for companies,
What plans executives and stakeholders can put in place to prepare for cyberattacks, and
Why cyberattack simulations are the best way to reinforce digital defenses and train for recovery protocols.
