In today’s digital landscape, the concept of cyber resilience has taken centre stage. While disaster recovery (DR) solutions have been essential for organisations for years, more is needed to combat the evolving threat landscape that cyberattacks present. 

The Traditional Role of Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery scenarios often involve human error, natural disasters, power outages, network interruptions, or hardware failures. When faced with these issues, IT teams can swiftly find the latest point-in-time replica of an organisation’s systems and data and failover to the cloud. Modern DR solutions have streamlined this process, making it relatively quick and effective.

The Shift in Recovery Needs

However, the recovery landscape has drastically changed. Just three years ago, over 80% of 11:11 Systems’ disaster declarations followed the standard DR model, with fewer than 20% involving cyberattacks. Fast forward to 2023, and a remarkable transformation has occurred. All disaster declarations are now related to cyber recovery.

This shift is indicative of the alarming surge in cybercrime, with experts estimating a 300%-600% increase in cyberattacks since the onset of the global pandemic. Even the healthcare sector has witnessed a 58% increase in cybercrime over the last three years, underscoring the extent of the problem across all industries.

Why Cyber Recovery Differs

The key distinction with cyber recovery is that, even if an organisation has a DR solution, the IT team may remain unaware of when their data was compromised. It could have been compromised minutes or months ago, rendering the latest point-in-time DR replica potentially corrupt and unusable.

Identifying Gaps and Understanding Risk

To address this challenge, 11:11 Systems has developed an online Cyber Risk Assessment. This questionnaire comprises 20 questions about an organisation’s planning, technology, and procedures, essential for a comprehensive approach to minimising disruption from a cyber event. Identifying these gaps is the first step in understanding an organisation’s risk profile. Upon completing the assessment, 11:11 Systems offers a no-cost, professionally-led cyber readiness discussion with their experts, who possess decades of experience in addressing cybercrime and filling recovery gaps.

Additionally, 11:11 Systems has published an infographic that outlines steps organisations can take to become cyber-ready. These tools provide clarity on the depth and breadth of the cyber resilience challenge while offering actionable steps for immediate implementation. They are a valuable resource for assessing an organisation’s cyber recovery readiness, just in time for Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October.


The world of cyber resilience has evolved, and organisations must adapt to the new normal. Disaster recovery solutions alone are no longer sufficient to address the growing threat of cyber attacks. 11:11 Systems, with its Cyber Risk Assessment and expert guidance, empowers organisations to strengthen their cyber recovery preparedness. This is a vital step toward ensuring their continued success and security in an ever-changing digital landscape. Contact Millgate today to find out more!
