Cyber resilience is a critical component of enterprise resilience — this is all about planning, preparedness, response and recovery while continually ensuring business continuity.
I have truly benefited from my 40+ years of experience in global risk and resilience expertise. My career spans leadership roles in industries from technology to entertainment, food, energy and law enforcement. I have conducted business in over 50 countries, helping organisations in both the private and public sector resolve some of the most complex matters. I’ve had the privilege of working with companies like International SOS, Apple, Campbell Soup, HerbalLife, US Department of State, Tel Aviv University, USC and the FBI.
One of the most notable experiences in my career includes leading the global protection team at Sony Pictures Entertainment in overcoming one of the most destructive nation-state cyber-attacks in history. This required expert crisis management that included engaging the FBI, disconnecting from all networks and engaging third party support. In the first three months, we focused on analysis, investigation, rebuilding networks and infrastructure while ensuring business continuity with roughly a 75% success rate. In closing this crisis, we did not just make a full recovery, we strengthened our cyber resilience.
