INKY's Role in an Effective Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) Response Plan

In recent months an alarming number of businesses have been devastated by cyberattacks – specifically phishing scams. The ripple effect caused by these shutdowns has affected us all.  

  • Gas lines formed and prices jumped as a result of the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack.  
  • 425 of the U.S. Fortune 500 and all branches of the U.S. military, Pentagon, and State Department were victims of the SolarWinds cyberattack.
  • Computer systems owned by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) were recently breached, and while the systems that control train cars and rider safety were not breached, the vulnerabilities became obvious.2  
  • The Washington D.C. Police Department was hacked and, as a result, personal information belonging to 22 different police officers was leaked as part of an extortion attempt.3  
  • Cyber insurance giant CNA was a victim of a ransomware attack that shut down the company for three days.4 

These are just a handful of gruesome cyberattacks that have devastated companies in 2021 alone. Sadly, the list goes on and on.  

Companies of this size often partner with third-party Managed Service Providers (MSPs) for their IT and cybersecurity support. However, not all MSPs offer the type of security required for detecting the types of sophisticated phishing threats that deliver ransomware, malware, data breaches, or similar disasters. And when a company faces a breach or shutdown, they often look to their MSPs for answers. Quick action is key, and so is designing or implementing a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) Response Plan.   

Designing an effective Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan is key to disaster preparedness and helps ensure a company can continue to run in the event of a disruption—namely, a cyberattack. If a preventable phishing attack has already occurred and has placed the organization or its customers in danger, one of two possible scenarios often emerge. Either the company hires a new MSP with the ability to offer services that detect and fight phishing threats, or, if the company’s current MSP has a solid email phishing solution as part of its offerings, the company upgrades their service to include cybersecurity, rather than risk another breach to the organization or loss of customers.
