Frequently asked questions

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security refers to the application of technologies, processes and controls to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from Cyber Attacks.

What are the 6 main elements in Cyber Security?
  • Information security – the state of being protected against the unauthorized use of information, especially electronic data, or the measures taken to achieve this.
  • Network security – consists of the policies, processes and practices adopted to prevent, detect and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources.
  • Operational security – is a security and risk management process that prevents sensitive information from getting into the wrong hands
  • Application security – describes security measures at the application level that aim to prevent data or code within the app from being stolen or hijacked.
  • End-user education – is an important factor that an organization take measures to get all staff members educated on the basics of cybersecurity. The end-user is usually the weakest link when it comes to cybersecurity and that is what attackers are counting on.
  • Business continuity planning – is about maintaining critical business functions, not only during a disaster or crises, but afterwards as well. Traditional business continuity plans consider potential disruptions such as natural disasters, fires, disease outbreaks and cyber attacks.
