WHAT IS CYBERSECURITY?
Cyber Security Is:
Cyber Security is the ability to protect or defend the use of cyberspace from cyber-attacks.
When you think of cyberspace think of; website, social media, email, e-commerce, cloud storage/solutions…etc. Each of these cyber properties need to be hardened (secured) to protect the C.I.A. triad, which stands for Confidentiality, Integrity of your data, and Availability.
Confidentiality is the focus of protected and keeping your data private. It is essential that you keep your information secure from un-authorized users. With the increase of cyber attacks focused on stealing your data, it is essential you have systems in place to protect your data.
Integrity of your data is the process of protected your information from being tampered as well confirming the integrity of the data either in transit or at rest in a stored location.
Availability is important because you want your systems to be available to your staff, vendors, suppliers, and clients when they needs access to it. If your systems are down that effects your productivity, has a financial impact and effects your brand.
It’s important for all companies of any size to make cyber security a priority in your business.
