Have you ever been nervous about getting hacked while browsing through the internet and entering your personal details on a site?
Do you sometimes wonder who is going to have access to your social media data and what they could do with that information?
These and many more are cyber security issues,which is a very important science for every company working with data. Cyber security tries to protect information that is vulnerable through the use of information and communication technology.
Cyber security is responsible for the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information (CIA triad). Confidentiality means information is only made available to those authorized to have access. So big tech companies like Facebook takes confidentiality seriously to ensure that non-authorized individuals have no access to your data, and thus they gain the confidence of their customers.
Integrity represents the maintenance and assurance of the accuracy and completeness of information over its entire life cycle. As an example, if the database of a school gets hacked to increase a student’s grades, that would impede integrity of that system. Every tech company working online needs to put in place Integrity measures to protect their clients.
Availability means information must be available when it is needed. In some cases, a system is attacked, by a distributed denial of service (DDoS), rendering the system unavailable for use. In this situation customers will not be able to access their accounts to do business as supposed. Every tech company needs to jealously protect itself and make sure that it has available data.
