Cybersecurity (CYBERSEC) means staying protected in our interconnected world. From banking and shopping to healthcare, social networking and downloading the latest apps ‒ we live robust, online lives. Businesses face special challenges, like being the target of cybercriminals, having intellectual property stolen or being attacked to disrupt our way of life.
Cybersecurity must become a priority for every business and every industry. Companies need to proactively protect their most vital assets, employees and customers.
Employees have a shared responsibility to do their part ‒ especially as the traditional workplace changes with a mobile workforce, telecommuting and the blurring of lines between work and personal devices. If a cybersecurity incident does occur, businesses need to readily respond, recover and collaborate with law enforcement by sharing threat information and aiding investigations.
Operations Security (OPSEC) is the process of protecting little pieces of data that could be grouped together to give the bigger picture. OPSEC is the protecting of critical information deemed essential from a military or corporate standpoint. It is a process that identifies critical information to determine if friendly actions can be observed by adversary intelligence systems, determines if information obtained by adversaries could be interpreted to be useful to them, and then executes selected measures that eliminate or reduce adversary exploitation of friendly critical information.
Protecting this critical information is through the use of email encryption software, being careful of who may be listening to you (like in a hotel bar), paying close attention to a picture you have taken (background), or not talking openly on social media sites about company or personal information.
