Our Online Cyber Security Policy

0 | 1

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattack are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.

What is cybersecurity all about?

A successful cybersecurity approach has multiple layers of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, or data that one intends to keep safe. In an organization, the people, processes, and technology must all complement one another to create an effective defense from cyber attacks.

People

Users must understand and comply with basic data security principles like choosing strong passwords, being wary of attachments in email, and backing up data. Learn more about basic cybersecurity principles.

Processes

Organizations must have a framework for how they deal with both attempted and successful cyber attacks. One well-respected framework and best practices can guide you. 

Technology

Technology is essential to giving organizations and individuals the computer security tools needed to protect themselves from cyber attacks. Three main entities must be protected: endpoint devices like computers, smart devices, and routers; networks; and the cloud. Common technology used to protect these entities include next-generation firewalls, DNS filtering, malware protection, antivirus software, and email security solutions.
