Cybersecurity and digital resilience: Seven practices for companies in Indonesia

A robust cybersecurity program requires much more than increasing spending on security risks—digital resilience must also be built into business processes and system.

The Indonesian Security Incident Response Team on Internet Infrastructure reported 205 million cyberattacks in 2017. Cyberattacks can be costly, and their scope is widening. Many companies, in Indonesia and elsewhere, will need to do much more to protect themselves from cyberrisks. In a recent global survey, 75 percent of executives said they consider cybersecurity a top priority, yet only 16 percent said their companies are well prepared to withstand cyberrisks.

Our experience suggests that leading companies are working toward a state of digital resilience, in which they design their business processes and their IT systems to facilitate the protection of critical information and implement strong cyberdefenses and effective plans for responding to cyberattacks. In this article, we discuss seven practices that are essential to achieving digital resilience.
