Andy Jones, Distinguished Analyst at the ISF, spoke at the Special 5th Anniversary of the CISO 360 Congress, 2021.

Andy discussed the age of the cyber weapon, and the cyber attacks we need to prepare for.

Nation-state and ransomware attacks are increasingly sophisticated and can send a modern business back to the age of the typewriter in minutes.

Progressive organisations realise that prevention alone is a doomed strategy. The most cost-effective and pragmatic approach to resilience is to work through high-impact incidents and focus on how to return to normal business as efficiently as possible.
