Continuing ransomware trends are making it increasingly important for organizations to proactively and comprehensively consider what cyber recovery means, says Jessica Hetrick, cyber resilience leader at Optiv.

When an entity suffers a ransomware attack affecting the company's ability to operate, "It's not just a cybersecurity problem; it's a business problem," she says.

This is fueling the need for entities to not just understand what their technology interdependencies are across the business but also understand how to protect them, she says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Hetrick also discusses:

  • The risks, threats and impacts clients face;
  • Questions security leaders should be asking about their own enterprise's abilities to recover and be resilient;
  • Components and goals of Optiv's Cyber Recovery Solution.

Hetrick is a senior cybersecurity leader with more than a decade of experience in crisis management, incident response and security operations. Prior to joining Optiv, she directed global incident response teams at Cisco during crises and provided strategic leadership to reduce risk and improve processes and procedures for global organizations.
