Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we get.

Information security, often referred to as InfoSec, refers to the processes and tools designed and deployed to protect sensitive business information from modification, disruption, destruction, and inspection.

There are different types of InfoSec to be aware of.

* Application security is a broad topic that covers software vulnerabilities in web and mobile applications and application programming interfaces (APIs). These vulnerabilities may be found in authentication or authorisation of users, integrity of code and configurations, and mature policies and procedures. Application vulnerabilities can create entry points for significant InfoSec breaches. Application security is an important part of perimeter defence for InfoSec.

* Cloud security focuses on building and hosting secure applications in cloud environments and securely consuming third-party cloud applications. “Cloud” simply means that the application is running in a shared environment. Businesses must make sure that there is adequate isolation between different processes in shared environments.

* Encrypting data in transit and data at rest helps ensure data confidentiality and integrity. Digital signatures are commonly used in Cryptography to validate the authenticity of data. Cryptography and encryption has become increasingly important. A good example of cryptography use is the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The AES is a symmetric key algorithm used to protect classified government information.

* Infrastructure security deals with the protection of internal and extranet networks, labs, data centres, servers, desktops, and mobile devices.

* Incident response is the function that monitors for and investigates potentially malicious behaviour.
In preparation for breaches, IT staff should have an incident response plan for containing the threat and restoring the network. In addition, the plan should create a system to preserve evidence for forensic analysis and potential prosecution. This data can help prevent further breaches and help staff discover the attacker.

* Vulnerability management is the process of scanning an environment for weak points (such as unpatched software) and prioritising remediation based on risk.
In many networks, businesses are constantly adding applications, users, infrastructure, and so on. For this reason, it is important to constantly scan the network for potential vulnerabilities. Finding a vulnerability in advance can save your businesses the catastrophic costs of a breach.

Cyber Security is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyber attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.

Implementing effective Cyber Security measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more innovative.

A successful Cyber Security approach has multiple layers of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, or data that one intends to keep safe. In an organisation, the people, processes, and technology must all complement one another to create an effective defence from cyber attacks.

* People : Users must understand and comply with basic data security principles like choosing strong passwords, being wary of attachments in email, and backing up data. Learn more about basic cybersecurity principles.

* Processes : Organisations must have a framework for how they deal with both attempted and successful cyber attacks. One well-respected framework can guide you. It explains how you can identify attacks, protect systems, detect and respond to threats, and recover from successful attacks.

* Technology : Technology is essential to giving organisations and individuals the computer security tools needed to protect themselves from cyber attacks. Three main entities must be protected: endpoint devices like computers, smart devices, and routers; networks; and the cloud. Common technology used to protect these entities include next-generation firewalls, DNS filtering, malware protection, antivirus software, and email security solutions.

In today’s connected world, everyone benefits from advanced cyber defense programs. At an individual level, a cybersecurity attack can result in everything from identity theft, to extortion attempts, to the loss of important data like family photos. Everyone relies on critical infrastructure like power plants, hospitals, and financial service companies. Securing these and other organisations is essential to keeping our society functioning.

Everyone also benefits from the work of cyberthreat researchers (like PMC Technology) who investigate new and emerging threats and cyber attack strategies. They reveal new vulnerabilities, educate the public on the importance of cybersecurity, and strengthen open source tools. Their work makes the Internet safer for everyone.

Cyber Security Strategy

Creating an effective security strategy starts with the this checklist:

  • Choose strong passwords and unique usernames
  • Use an malware scanner that scans daily and automatically removes malware
  • Implement a firewall to block malicious traffic and attacks
  • Conduct regular audits and file review for unusual file names or content
  • Remove outdated and unused data and software
  • Use a service that patches vulnerabilities in applications, plugins, and themes
  • Select open-source applications based on security factors, such as date of the last update
  • Offer ongoing company-wide cybersecurity training
