Since 2010, National Security Month is celebrated in October in Norway. During this month, good security practices are promoted. In this blog post, we are going to have a look at what cyber security is and why it is important in our lives. Also, we will give you some tips to improve it.
1. What is cyber security?
Cyber security refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to keep the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our data. In short, confidentiality ensures that only those with the rights and privileges to access information are able to do so. Similarly, information has integrity when it is whole, complete, and uncorrupted. Finally, availability enables authorized users (people or computer systems) to access information without interference or obstruction and to receive it in the required format.
