Cyber Security

Cyber Security

Cyber security is the latest buzz phrase applied to Computer Security or I.T. Security and relates to both physical and nonphysical protection of systems. Consequently, tangible assets, such as hardware need to be protected from theft or damage. Whilst intangible assets, such as, software and data need to be protected, to ensure functionality, confidentiality, accuracy and availability. Protection should also extend to preventing any disruption of service or misuse.

The definition of a good hack, “nobody knows it’s happened.”

Our lives are becoming more entwined with the digital era. To such a degree that any significant failures in availability or loss of data becomes global headline news within minutes. Such is our reliance on this technology, whether, banking, buying online, social media or just accessing e-mail. As a result, it is not inconceivable that at some point in relatively near the future, we may live in a ‘cashless’ society. Consequently, cyber security has to play a more significant roll.

Cyberspace

“Cyberspace” is a term used to describe networks and the devices attached to them. These store, process and communicate information. “Cyber security, protects the cyberspace”.

With businesses moving into cyberspace to keep pace with the times, means that the data required for these services, also needs to be in cyberspace. As a consequence, this data often becomes the target of attackers as it potentially has value.

In today’s world, cyber security affects us all, from critical national infrastructure(cni), corporate networks to individual accounts. their availability, confidentiality and integrity is paramount.

Having investigated a number of these types of incidents, we are aware only too aware that, malicious electronic activities combined with human or physical factors allow for the circumnavigation security measures.

Examples of which include:

  • Tricking an individual to open a document or link that contains malicious software.
  • Gaining employment, which allows physical access to systems
  • Searching corporate waste for information that could help in accessing target data or systems, known as ‘dustbin diving’.

Physical,  personnel and digital elements need to be assessed in order to provide a comprehensive cyber security solution.

The definition of a good hack is, “nobody knows it’s happened.”

Our lives are becoming more entwined with the digital era and such is our reliance on this technology, whether, banking, buying online, social media or just accessing e-mail. Consequently, Cyber Security has to play a more significant roll.
