What are the three principles of cyber security?
The fundamental principles (tenets) of information security are confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Every element of an information security program (and every security control put in place by an entity) should be designed to achieve one or more of these principles. Together, they are called the CIA Triad.
Which of the following is the best definition for cybersecurity?
Cyber security refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. Cyber security may also be referred to as information technology security.
What are considered the 3 key functions necessary for the protection of digital assets?
Detect and block traffic from infected internal end points, Eliminate threats such as email spam, viruses and worms, Control user traffic bound toward the Internet, Monitor and detect network ports for rogue activity.
What is the attack mechanism directed against a system?
The attack mechanism directed against a system is commonly called a(n): Payload Vulnerability Attack Vector Exploit.
What are key principles of security?
The Principles of Security can be classified as follows:
- Confidentiality: The degree of confidentiality determines the secrecy of the information.
- Authentication: Authentication is the mechanism to identify the user or system or the entity.
- Access control:
Which are part of cyber security principles?
These cyber security principles are grouped into four key activities: govern, protect, detect and respond.
- Govern: Identifying and managing security risks.
- Protect: Implementing security controls to reduce security risks.
- Detect: Detecting and understanding cyber security events.
What is cyber security and its types?
Cyber security is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security. Application security focuses on keeping software and devices free of threats.
What is cybersecurity and why is it important?
Cybersecurity is important because it protects all categories of data from theft and damage. This includes sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems.
Why is it called cyber?
Cyber came from cybernetics Cybernetics influences game, system, and organizational theory. Cybernetics derived from the Greek kubernētēs which refers to a pilot or steersman. Related is the Greek word kubernēsis which means “the gift of governance” and applies to leadership.
Which is the correct order for the NIST cybersecurity framework process?
This learning module takes a deeper look at the Cybersecurity Framework’s five Functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover.
Is a weakness in the design implementation operation or internal controls in a process that could be exploited to violate the system security?
Definition(s): Weakness in an information system, system security procedures, internal controls, or implementation that could be exploited or triggered by a threat source.
Where should an organization’s network terminate Virtual Private Network VPN tunnels?
Network teams have several choices regarding where to terminate the central end of VPN tunnels.
- Inside the site’s firewall. This places remote devices inside the organization’s secure perimeter.
- Outside the site’s firewall.
- In a demilitarized zone (DMZ) network between two firewalls at a site.
- On a site’s firewall.
What is the most neglected security best practices in the workplace?
Here are the 10 most neglected security best practices: 1. Classify data based on its sensitivity. Security experts recommend that organizations classify data at least twice per year so they can reset access rights and ensure that only the right people have access to data.
What are the phases of incident response?
Incident response is typically broken down into six phases; preparation, identification, containment, eradication, recovery and lessons learned.
What is an attack vector in cyber security?
What are attack vectors? Attack vectors are the methods that adversaries use to breach or infiltrate your network. Attack vectors take many different forms, ranging from malware and ransomware, to man-in-the-middle attacks, compromised credentials, and phishing.
