Shielding, it’s the guardian of data, the defender of systems. It stands as the digital fortress, keeping threats at bay and ensuring tranquility in the digital realm.
Here are the Key Features of Security:
- Confidentiality: Ensures that sensitive information is accessible only to authorized individuals or systems.
- Integrity: Guarantees the accuracy and reliability of data by preventing unauthorized modification.
- Availability: Ensures that systems and data are accessible and usable when needed, minimizing downtime.
- Authentication: Verifies the identity of users or systems to ensure that they are who they claim to be.
- Authorization: Determines the level of access and permissions that authenticated users have, limiting actions to what is necessary.
- Non-repudiation: Prevents individuals from denying their actions. It ensures that actions or transactions are traceable to their originator.
- Firewalls: Implements barriers between a private internal network and external networks to prevent unauthorized access.
- Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS): Monitors network or system activities for malicious actions or policy violations.
- Encryption: Converts data into a secure format, making it unreadable to unauthorized users, and can only be decrypted by those with the proper keys.
- Security Auditing and Logging: Keeps records of system activities, enabling the identification of these incidents and patterns.
- Vulnerability Management: Regularly assesses and addresses vulnerabilities in systems and software to prevent exploitation.
- Security Policies: Defines rules and guidelines for secure behavior within an organization, ensuring a consistent and proactive approach to security.
- Security Awareness Training: Educates users about these threats, best practices, and how to recognize and respond to potential risks.
- Incident Response: Establishes procedures to identify, respond to, and mitigate for incidents effectively.
- Physical Security: Protects physical assets, such as servers and network devices, from unauthorized access or damage.
- Endpoint Security: Secures individual devices (endpoints) such as computers, smartphones, and tablets from various threats.
