Cybersecurity

"Cybersecurity is defined as the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of information in the cyberspace." - ISO (International Organization for Standardization)

"Cybersecurity is the collection of tools, policies, security concepts, security safeguards, guidelines, risk management approaches, actions, training, best practices, assurance and technologies that can be used to protect the cyber environment and organisation and user's assets. Organisation and user's assets include connected computing devices, personnel, infrastructure, applications, services, telecommunications systems, and the totality of transmitted and/or stored information in the cyber environment. Cybersecurity strives to ensure the attainment and maintenance of the security properties of the organisation and user's assets against relevant security risks in the cyber environment." - ITU (International Telecommunications Union)
