CYBERSECURITY

In the connected world, the need to have a high degree of protection of the assets of a company is a must. Especially the protection of the assets that are immaterial and can be stolen without leaving any trace of what happened. It is very important that managers improve the awareness of which threats can have the companies they manage coming from inside and outside their companies. There have been in the past a confusion between Information security and Cybersecurity. Information security deals with information, regardless of its format—it encompasses paper documents, digital and intellectual property in people's minds, and verbal or visual communications.

 

Cybersecurity, on the other hand, is concerned with protecting digital assets—everything from networks to hardware and information that is processed, stored or transported by internetworked information systems. Additionally, concepts such as nation-state-sponsored attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs) belong almost exclusively to cybersecurity. It is helpful to think of cybersecurity as a component of information security.

Therefore, to eliminate confusion, we intend the term cybersecurity as protecting information assets by addressing threats to information processed, stored and transported by internetworked information systems. Protecting Digital Assets In their cybersecurity frameworks, both the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) have identified five key functions necessary for the protection of digital assets.

These functions coincide with incident management methodologies we use and include the following activities:

• Identify: Use organizational understanding to minimize risk to systems, assets, data and capabilities.
• Protect: Design safeguards to limit the impact of potential events on critical services and infrastructure.
• Detect: Implement activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event.,
• Respond: Take appropriate action after learning of a security event.
• Recover: Plan for resilience and the timely repair of compromised capabilities and services.

We provide service in assessing, auditing and implementing plans against the cyber risk and improving the cybersecurity awareness.
