In 2015, former Cisco CEO John Chambers famously wrote: “There are two types of companies: Those that have been hacked, and those that haven’t yet discovered that they’ve been hacked.” Since then, this statement has only become more accurate. In fact, 2019 was the worst year on record for data breaches as the cost of those breaches soared. A new approach to defending an organization’s data and assets is required. Step forward Cyber Resilience.
Chambers’ point about the inevitability of cyber attack and breach is well made. In today’s digital age, we are faced with a massive proliferation of data, systems, apps, and devices. That’s just internally. We are increasingly creating digital ecosystems to drive agility, collaboration and innovation.

I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
