Making Your IT Systems & Networks More Secure

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is a way to protect internet-connected systems (hardware and software) from cyber-attacks and threats. It prevents attackers from accessing, tampering, or extorting valuable data.

Why Is Cybersecurity Important?

In a world where most of our data is stored online, it’s imperative to protect it from unauthorized access. Cyber-attacks may happen to individuals and enterprises alike, compromising their privacy and security. Cybersecurity is needed to prevent such circumstances that could lead to a breach or loss of data.

Types of Cybersecurity

  • Network security: This is the practice through which you can secure your computer network from intruders.
  • Application security: This is based on keeping your devices and software free from cyber threats, preventing you from using compromised applications.
  • Information security: This is used to protect data integrity and privacy, in transit as well as storage.
  • Operational security: This encompasses the processes involved in protecting data assets, including how and where data can be stored.
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity: This refers to how an organization responds to a cyber-attack that has caused a loss of data or impacted operations.
  • End-user education: This teaches users how they can delete suspicious items received via email, avoid using unidentified USB drives, and many other security tactics.

About NIST Cybersecurity Framework

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework is a risk-based approach to dealing with cybersecurity. The global framework is used by organizations within and outside Australia and has been designed to help them better understand, manage, and reduce cyber threats. It is meant to facilitate service delivery and crucial operations, all the while improving your cybersecurity.

Our team at BlueShield Technologies Pvt Ltd can help you:

  • Gain the critical skills required to implement the NIST Framework
  • Ensure effective integration with other existing management systems through collaboration

The Essential Eight

The Five Functions of NIST Framework

The five functions of the NIST Framework are the backbone of a strong and holistic cybersecurity system. They are as follows

The Identify Function

This helps in arriving at an organizational understanding of how cybersecurity incidents need to be managed, especially in the business world. It identifies the potential risks not just to systems, but also to data, assets, and capabilities. This helps organizations devise risk management strategies aligned with their business needs.

The Protect Function

The Protect Function: This outlines the safeguards for ensuring the delivery of crucial infrastructure services. It helps contain or limit the impact a potential cybersecurity attack may have.

The Detect Function:

This outlines which activities are relevant and appropriate in order to identify a cybersecurity attack. It allows for the timely detection and discovery of such an incident.

The Respond Function

This includes the relevant activities needed to take action against a cyber-attack that has been detected. The Respond Function aims to contain the impact of a cyber-attack.

The Recover Function

This identifies the relevant activities needed to restore any services that were affected and temporarily barred because of a cybersecurity attack. It facilitates a timely recovery of these services, allowing them to return to normal operations as quickly as possible.
