The primary goal of cybersecurity is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems.
Everyone is very conscious of cybersecurity, and the reality is that no one knows exactly what it is that they need to be worried about. They don't know where to start. They know they don't want to get hacked, but they don't understand what can happen, how it can happen, what the results will be, and what can you do to avoid that.
“Cybersecurity” is a dynamic and evolving field, as cyber threats continue to advance in sophistication. It refers to the practice of protecting computer systems, networks, software, and data from digital attacks, theft, damage, or unauthorised access. Ineffective cyber risk management can have serious consequences for organisations, compromising the security, reputation, and overall well-being and potential survival of the business.
Managing this requires every organisations leadership to be able to;
- Identify possible threats, with the help of cybersecurity professionals
- Evaluate the scope and impact of their exposures
- Deploy a combination of controls to reduce the possibility and impact of potential breaches, along with a suitable safety net to deal with any events that do occur.
Policy development, education, ongoing vigilance and response/control/financing measures help ensure that your business can be resilient against an attack, and can recover more quickly, more completely and at the lowest possible cost to the organisation.
It is critical to remember that because the cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving. Companies and individuals alike need to foster resources that allow them to stay informed about emerging threats and to adopt the proactive measures that will ensure they maintain a strong cybersecurity posture.
Managing the many factors is an arduous process but is far less painful and costly than recovering from a significant loss.
