The state of federal cyber resilience

Accenture’s State of Cyber Resilience report identifies best practices of federal leaders that outperform their peers in defending against cyberattacks. Research finds that these leaders prioritize key technologies, emphasize speed of response, and scale, train, and collaborate more.

What is cyber resilience? Cyber resilience brings together the capabilities of cybersecurity, business continuity, and enterprise resilience. It applies holistic security strategies to help federal agencies and other organizations respond quickly to threats so they can minimize the damage and continue to operate under attack.

Accenture’s latest research shows that most organizations, including federal agencies, are getting better at preventing direct cyberattacks.
