Cybersecurity 101: A Discussion on the Basics and Fundamentals

By Ed Moyle and Raef Meeuwisse

So you want to be a cybersecurity pro? Well, we certainly hope you’re up for the challenge. Unless you’ve been living under a rock (a rock with no WiFi), you’re well aware of just some of the challenges businesses face when it comes to information security.

Colossal breaches have graced headlines in the last decade, and given the proliferation of technology in the modern-day enterprise, chances are they’ll continue to do so. So if it’s day one for you at an organization and you’re responsible for data security, where do you start? How do you begin to tackle those challenges, tap into the right technology, and communicate your progress?

For those of you working at small to medium-sized businesses, the security department may be a team of one…yourself. If that’s the case, it’s even more important to take the right approach and have a detailed understanding of the steps you should be taking to develop a comprehensive and successful security strategy.

It all starts with the fundamentals, so in this edition of InfoSec Insider’s educational video series, Ed Moyle and Raef Meeuwisse discuss those basics and give us a preview into the actionable steps they'll provide you with in the companion video that will be published later this week.

To learn more about similar threats and how to address them, be sure to attend the upcoming InfoSec World Conference & Expo in Orlando, Florida.
