Enterprise Cybersecurity

Enterprise cybersecurity refers to the practice of protecting digital assets and information from various cybersecurity threats and attacks.

The main aim of cybersecurity is to ensure the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of the organization's systems, network, and data.

Confidentiality - involves the efforts of an organization to make sure data is kept secret or private by applying multi-layer authentication and security controls like- Passwords, MFA, Access tokens, etc.

Integrity - ensures that data is protected against unauthorized modifications, deletions, or tampering. When the right people have the right level of access (R-Read, W-Write, X-Execute), the integrity of information will be protected.

Availability - ensures that authorized users can access the required resources and services when needed, without experiencing significant downtime or disruptions.

Key elements of enterprise cybersecurity include:

Application Security refers to the practices and measures implemented to protect software applications from vulnerabilities, and threats. It involves certain coding practices, vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, to mitigate risks throughout the application's lifecycle.

Tools - Checkmarx, Veracode, Burp Suite, OWASP ZAP

Network Security deploys firewalls, intrusion detection systems, virtual private networks (VPNs), and other technologies to secure the organization's network infrastructure.

Tools - Firewall, Snort, Nessus, Wireshark, Zscaler, Cloudflare.

Incident Response refers to establishing protocols and procedures to detect, respond to, and recover from cybersecurity incidents effectively, minimizing the impact on the organization's operations.

Tools - Splunk, CrowdStrike, ThreatConnect, Autopsy, ServiceNow

Tools - Cylance, McAfee EPO, MS Defender, Qualys, Symantec DLP

Compliance refers to the adherence to laws, regulations, industry standards, and internal policies relevant to an organization's operations.
