Cyber resilience concerns all organizations and all employees as the consequences of a cyber attack can be catastrophic for any company. Cyber attacks have become more frequent and damaging since the end of the 1990s. According to Cybersecurity Ventures (a specialised magazine), cybercrime damages are expected to cost USD 6 trillion annually by 2021, up from USD 3 trillion in 2015.

While chief information officers used to focus on cybersecurity to protect their organizations, they now implement cyber resilience to fight cybercrime proactively. Cyber resilience combines the areas of information security, business continuity and organizational resilience.
