3. What are the different types of cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity involves employing a number of different processes and technological tools to protect your network, business data, customer personal information, and cloud infrastructure from potential security threats or breaches. There are four main types of cybersecurity.

  • Network security involves the protection of your business’s computer networks to prevent internal and external attacks using a variety of techniques to increase security standards. The goal is to prevent malicious software from infiltrating your network security systems and gaining access to sensitive company or customer information.
  • Application security protects sensitive customer and business information that’s stored in apps. Application security typically involves a multi-step authentication process such as entering a PIN or password, as well as answering security questions to verify the identity of the user.
  • Cloud security protects any data and files that are stored on the cloud. Since most people these days use the cloud instead of a physical hard drive for storage, it’s absolutely imperative to have a reliable and impenetrable cloud security system for your business.
  • Operational security includes an in-depth risk management plan and team to eliminate the risk of potential security breaches and have effective backup solutions in place in the event that data is compromised.

4. What is a disaster recovery plan?

All companies need to have a detailed and reliable IT data recovery plan or policy in place to prepare for potential future security breaches. This is an extensive and professional step-by-step action plan that’s custom designed to execute a full data recovery process in the event of a malicious hacker or data security breach.

5. What’s included in an IT disaster recovery plan?

The following components are typically included in a full-fledged IT data recovery plan:

  • Recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point objective (RPO)
  • Detailed hardware and software inventory
  • Role of each personnel member
  • Disaster recovery sites
  • Detailed outline of response procedures to be carried out
  • List of sensitive documents and data
  • A detailed crisis communication plan
  • Perform routine practice tests to guarantee the efficacy of your plan

6. How is cybersecurity important for physical security?

Cybersecurity and physical security share a lot of similarities. You wouldn’t go to bed at night without first making sure that all of the doors in your house were locked. The same principle can be applied to cybersecurity, which is the equivalent of locking your virtual doors and erecting a barrier to prevent malicious softwares and hackers from gaining access to sensitive information. Implementing strong cybersecurity and risk management measures can help effectively prevent sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.
