RESILIA Foundation is an introductory qualification that covers basic knowledge of how to handle cyber risk. The Foundation certification can be obtained by passing the official exam. It leads on to more advanced qualifications such as RESILIA Practitioner.
Studying RESILIA can be of use to staff across multiple departments and at all levels of seniority. Knowledge of the benefits associated with cyber resilience is also useful to everyone, from IT service staff to boardroom executives.
In addition, all core business departments – HR, Finance, Procurement, Operations, and Marketing – can benefit from having cyber resilience knowledge within their team. Having preventative measures and best practices ready to go will always be the best way to deal with potential threats.
RESILIA is designed to complement ITIL and was developed using a lifecycle structure adapted from ITIL V3. While it functions as an independent framework, it is keenly aware of ITSM concerns and has many similarities with ITIL’s process and practice-based approach.
Both frameworks are certified by AXELOS, so organizations that already use ITIL will find it easy to integrate RESLIA into existing processes.
Cyber Resilience measures an organization’s capacity to prepare for, resist, respond to and recover from cyberattacks. A cyber resilient organization can also adapt to unknown crises and thrive in adverse conditions.
Traditionally, cybersecurity has focused on an organization’s ability to detect and prevent cyber-attacks using regularly tested technical controls and security standards.
Due to the quickly evolving nature of cyber-attacks, it is no longer feasible to prevent all attacks, regardless of how up-to-date a company’s IT controls are. Cyber resilience accepts that attacks will happen and focuses instead on how a business responds and recovers.
CISM, CISA and CISSP are technical certifications explicitly aimed at security professionals.
RESILIA takes a broader view, aiming to teach staff in a variety of roles and positions how to handle cyber-attacks and implement cyber resilience into the organization as a whole.
