Credits: None available.


Many client organizations are confused by our industry's lingo and particularly similar or interchangeable terms. This session will discuss cybersecurity vs. cyberresiliency in the following context: --What's the difference in definitions and scope? --Why is this important to the practitioner to explain and communicate to clients? --What are potential negative impacts of not differentiating for your clients? --Is it time for a terminology refresh to accommodate new technologies and updated terminology among various industry sectors?

Learning Objectives:
  • Define cyber resiliency vs. cybersecurity.
  • Communicate effectively to clients the importance of understanding and addressing both.
  • Discuss or demonstrate examples of negative impacts of not fully addressing both in risk assessment and continuity planning.
