Protecting important information
Cybersecurity refers to preventative methods used to protect information from being stolen, compromised or attacked. It requires an understanding of potential information threats, such as viruses and other malicious code. Cybersecurity strategies include identity management, risk management and incident management
In the tech media and in the boardroom, talk about cybersecurity is everywhere. It's even becoming a staple of the nightly news as national governments gear up to attack one another over the internet. With that in mind, it's extremely important for executives or any business leaders to have a defined concept of what constitutes good cybersecurity and how to protect networks.
Safeguard Your Systems
There are many strategies that companies use to safeguard their systems – some fundamental security principles will help make sure that a firm’s sensitive data and assets are at a decreased risk. Some of the most basic cybersecurity tools operate at the perimeter of a network or in places where IT professionals can catch viruses or malware where they can do the least damage. The firewall is one traditional example, along with email monitoring software and a spate of anti-virus and anti-malware tools.
