Accelerated digital transformation and the adoption of ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ (IIoT) has exposed organisations to a variety of disruptive cyber attacks. As this transformation continues, it’s now vital that exposures to ransomware and disruptive cyber events are addressed as a priority within business continuity planning.
But not all organisations have upgraded their legacy Business Continuity Management (BCM) processes to counteract cyber attacks to mission-critical systems – and the potential operational and reputational losses that could result.
How we help
Aon’s Business Continuity Management for Cyber Risk solution helps identify gaps in legacy BCM strategies that have emerged due to the rapid adoption of digital technology.
An updated and upgraded Business Continuity Plan addresses the commercial dependency on digital technology and mitigates future operational disruptions and financial losses from disruptive cyber attacks.
We also support companies to better align their existing Business Continuity Plans to real-life cyber scenarios to determine an organisation’s current level of resiliency and improvement requirements.
Our global team of Cyber Risk Consulting and Business Continuity professionals are able to evaluate the adequacy of existing BCM strategies, test internal awareness, and improve gaps in legacy BCPs.
- Diagnostic and Strategy: A proprietary maturity assessment to determine if existing BCM strategies address current technology dependencies and emerging cyber threats
- Planning: A comprehensive evaluation/audit of any existing BCP to address disruptive cyber scenarios impacting critical technology
- Testing: A bespoke table top exercise or simulation exercise to test awareness and effectiveness of BCPs in a real-life setting
- Governance: The development of new internal governance structures to better support a revised cyber-focused BCM programme
- Reducing frequency and potential severity of disruptive cyber events
- Determining the critical dependencies of revenue generating operations/teams on digital technology
