What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting computer systems, networks, and programs, along with electronic information, from digital attacks, theft, and damage. It involves a set of technologies, processes, and practices designed to secure computer systems and sensitive information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. Cybersecurity risk is any potential threat to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of an information asset. Cybersecurity is critical in today's world as the use of technology continues to expand in all areas of life and business, and the threat of cyberattacks becomes increasingly sophisticated and persistent.
Benefits of Cybersecurity Certification
Cybersecurity Certification refers to the process of evaluating and verifying the security features and capabilities of a specific cybersecurity product, system, or solution. The certification process typically involves independent testing and evaluation of the product by a third-party organization, such as Intertek. The goal of cybersecurity certification is to provide assurance to customers that the product has been rigorously tested and meets established security standards and requirements.
The benefits to having a well-built and maintained cybersecurity program in place, including:
- Protecting sensitive information: Cybersecurity helps to protect sensitive information such as financial data, personal information, trade secrets, and intellectual property from unauthorized access, theft, or damage.
- Preventing data breaches: Cybersecurity measures can help prevent data breaches, which can result in the loss of sensitive information, financial losses, and damage to an organization's reputation.
- Ensuring business continuity: In the event of a cyberattack, a strong cybersecurity program can help ensure that business operations can continue without interruption.
- Complying with regulations: Many industries are subject to strict regulations regarding the protection of sensitive information. Cybersecurity measures can help organizations comply with these regulations and avoid costly fines.
- Protecting against identity theft: Cybersecurity helps to protect individuals against identity theft by securing sensitive information such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, and other personally identifiable information.
- Improving overall security posture: A strong cybersecurity program can help organizations to proactively identify and address potential security threats, improving their overall security posture and reducing the risk of cyberattacks.
