Cybersecurity: Maximize Resilience

Next-generation cybersecurity services can help you achieve your mission and build cyber resilience from the inside out.

"We define Cyber Resilience as the ability to continuously deliver the intended outcome despite adverse cyber events."

— Gus Hunt, Managing Director and Cyber Strategy Lead – Accenture Federal Services

Know. Emulate. Outpace. Eliminate. Your Threat

In today’s digital world, more data is available across more devices to more users than ever before. The catch? An increasingly larger attack surface that today’s sophisticated adversaries are targeting to find their way in. You need a different approach to cyber resilience today.

We have fused together deep cybersecurity expertise with artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics tools that allow us to know, emulate, outpace and eliminate threats in real time. We use our repository of 18 million known bad actors, malicious IP addresses and viral code snippets to identify threats as they’re happening. We evict adversaries from your system in seconds, not hours using advanced automated response solutions powered by data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

It’s time to up our active defense game and demand cyber resilience. We’re ready. Let’s get started.

Featured story

Accenture conducted detailed modeling of organizations’ cybersecurity performance and identified an elite group of leaders — 17 percent globally — that achieved significantly higher levels of performance compared to the rest. Federal agencies outperformed the global sample, with 28 percent qualifying as leaders.

What are the best practices of federal organizations that excel in defending against cyberattacks? Accenture’s research found that:

  • Leaders focus on technologies that provide the greatest benefit.
  • They scale, train, and collaborate more.
  • Leaders focus on speed for detection, mobilization, and remediation.

Accenture’s Third Annual State of Cyber Resilience Report – Federal Edition surveyed 4,644 executives, including 100 federal professionals, to understand the current state of cyber resilience and identify what sets leaders apart.

Most organizations, including federal agencies, are getting better at defending against cyberattacks. But as defenses evolve, so too do the threats.

Security by design

Your adversaries want two things—data and control. It’s time to prepare for cyber resilience and demand data-centric security. Discover the path to data-centric security now: the good, the better the best.

As you make progress over time, you will reach the critical point where you’re no longer securing data—the data is practically securing itself.

Managing Director, Cyber Strategy Lead

The path to cyber resilience

Shifting from a posture of cybersecurity to one of cyber resilience allows federal agencies to ensure operations and remain consistent, even when a breach occurs.

The good, better, best path to data-centric security
