Cyber security-by-design

Organizations should build cyber resilience from the beginning, rather than only looking at security after implementation

This year’s IEC General Meeting is taking place in China, a country with a long tradition of putting up buildings that can withstand earthquakes. Centuries ago the Chinese realized that the best way to protect cities in an active seismic area is to start thinking about safety and security during the design phase. A good example from more recent times is the world’s second tallest building, the Shanghai Tower. The 632-metre structure (2 073 ft) was designed with a reinforced foundation and a system of counterweights and shock absorbers to prevent excessive swaying during earthquakes and high winds.
