What is security?

Security encompasses many practices, tools, and techniques to safeguard systems and applications from unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security threats. For example, cloud security focuses on protecting data, applications, and infrastructure within cloud environments, while application security explicitly targets the security of software applications, including their design, development, and deployment. Both disciplines aim to mitigate risks and ensure data and services' confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

How and where would you use security?

Implementing cloud and application security requires strategic planning, adherence to best practices, and using appropriate tools and technologies. This involves conducting risk assessments, applying layered security controls, integrating security measures throughout the software development lifecycle, establishing threat detection and response processes, and educating staff on security best practices. By taking a comprehensive approach, organizations can effectively manage and mitigate security risks in their cloud and application environments.

Data protection

Data protection describes the process of protecting information, typically sensitive information that needs to be secured from damage, loss or corruption.

Identity and access management

Identity and Access Management (IAM) is a crucial security practice that focuses on managing and controlling user identities, authentication, and authorization within an organization, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access specific resources and perform designated actions.

Incident response

An incident response describes an organized, strategic approach aimed at detecting and managing cyber attacks in the best possible manner.

Intrusion detection and prevention

Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) describe two methods for watching over your network.

Security awareness

Security awareness is the understanding that groups are out to hack into your data, steal information and corrupt your files.
