About PwC’s Digital Trust Insights: Raising RQ

PwC has unveiled their new Digital Trust Insights on Raising RQ, centered around how companies can become more resilient in the face of rising cybersecurity issues and trends in order to raise their resilience quotient (RQ). PwC’s Digital Trust Insights study looked into the resilience strategies in over 3,500 firms globally, and have discovered that we are in the middle of a “mindset shift” surrounding what we need to protect our businesses, as well as mitigate and recover from challenges and crises. Furthermore, their study found that the companies with the most mature cyber strategies and who are most resilient against threats—holding a higher Resilience Quotient (RQ)— no longer use a traditional disaster recovery/business continuity model. Instead, they focus on “resilience by design.” This broad approach tactic gains “real-time views of higher-priority processes so that decision makers and responders can react to incidents in concert, with minimal harm to the business.”

How do you build up your RQ in your own organization? According to PwC, there is a three-pronged approach:
- Having visibility into core processes, assets and dependencies in your organization, wherein you gain an understanding of how data assets/processes are relevant to core business services.
- Defining and testing how much disruption your organization can tolerate without crumbling under the pressure and hindering the ability to serve your customers—how much damage impact is your organization willing to withstand, and for how long?
- Building digital resilience by design: the next frontier into restructuring your security strategy and environment so you have responsive, realm-time resiliency.
