{tableName=glossary, name=Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), description= Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) is an access control system that is used to regulate user access to computer systems, networks, and other resources. It is based on the principle that users are assigned to roles, and each role is granted specific permissions or access to resources. RBAC is an effective way to manage access to resources, as it allows administrators to easily assign and manage permissions for multiple users. RBAC also provides a more granular level of control than other access control models, such as discretionary access control (DAC) or mandatory access control (MAC). By assigning roles to users, RBAC allows administrators to control user access to resources based on their roles, rather than individual user accounts. This makes RBAC a more efficient and secure way to manage access to resources, as it reduces the risk of unauthorized access., topic=null, hs_path=role-based-access-control-rbac}--
{tableName=glossary, name=GDPR Requirements, description= The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data protection law that was adopted by the European Union (EU) in April 2016. It is designed to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the EU, while also giving individuals greater control over their personal data. The GDPR requirements apply to any organisation, regardless of size or location, that processes the personal data of individuals in the EU. This includes organisations that process data for marketing purposes, as well as those that process data for other purposes such as employee data, customer data, and health data. The GDPR requires organisations to be transparent about how they collect, use, store, and delete personal data, and to ensure that all personal data is processed in a secure and lawful manner. It also requires organisations to provide individuals with the right to access, rectify, erase, or restrict the processing of their personal data, as well as the right to data portability. Additionally, organisations must notify individuals of any data breaches that occur, and must obtain consent from individuals before processing their personal data. Finally, the GDPR requires organisations to appoint a data protection officer and to conduct data protection impact assessments prior to processing any personal data., topic=null, hs_path=gdpr-requirements}--
{tableName=glossary, name=Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA), description= Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a process used to identify, assess, and manage data protection risks within an organization. It is an important tool for organizations to ensure that personal data is processed in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and regulations. A DPIA is a risk-based assessment that helps organizations to identify and mitigate any potential risks associated with the processing of personal data. It is used to evaluate the necessity and proportionality of the processing activities, to identify and assess the potential risks to the rights and freedoms of individuals, and to identify any measures necessary to address those risks. The DPIA should be conducted before the processing of personal data begins and should be updated periodically to ensure that the risks are managed and minimized. The DPIA should include the identification of the data controller and processor, the purpose of the data processing, the categories of personal data to be processed, the recipients of the data, the duration of the data processing, the security measures in place, and the measures taken to protect the rights of the data subjects., topic=null, hs_path=data-protection-impact-assessment-dpia}--
{tableName=glossary, name=Cyber Risk Consultant, description= A Cyber Risk Consultant is a specialist in the field of cyber security and risk management. They provide advice and guidance to organizations, businesses, and individuals on how to reduce the risk of cyber attack, data breach, and other forms of cybercrime. Cyber Risk Consultants analyze the potential risks associated with digital technologies and identify potential security vulnerabilities, then provide solutions to mitigate or eliminate those risks. They use their knowledge of cyber security best practices, industry standards, and emerging technologies to develop and implement security plans and policies. Additionally, they may provide training and education to personnel on cyber security topics. Cyber Risk Consultants are expected to stay abreast of the latest trends in cyber security and be able to provide up-to-date advice and guidance to their clients., topic=[{id=97620570528, createdAt=1673040885452, updatedAt=1715624222504, path='cybersecurity-risk-management', name=' Cybersecurity Risk Management: A Guide for Businesses', 1='{type=string, value=Cybersecurity Risk Management}', 2='{type=string, value= This guide provides essential information on cyber security risk management, including how to identify, assess, and mitigate risks to your organization's data and systems.

It also discusses the need to develop a culture of security within an organization and the role of leadership in setting the tone for a secure environment. Finally, the guide provides guidance on the selection and implementation of security technologies, as well as the monitoring and review of risk management processes. This guide is an essential resource for anyone looking to understand and manage risks associated with cyber threats.}', 15='{type=list, value=[{id=97620570528, name='Cybersecurity Risk Management'}]}'}], hs_path=cyber-risk-consultant}--
{tableName=glossary, name=NIST Controls, description= NIST Controls are a set of security guidelines developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to help organizations protect their information systems, networks, and data. They provide a comprehensive framework of security requirements and best practices that organizations can use to protect their systems and data from malicious attacks, unauthorized access, and other cyber threats. NIST Controls are based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, which outlines five core functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. These functions provide a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity, helping organizations identify vulnerabilities and threats, develop appropriate security measures, detect and respond to incidents, and recover from them. NIST Controls also provide guidance on implementing security controls, including technical, administrative, and physical security measures., topic=[{id=97620570503, createdAt=1673040885296, updatedAt=1715624266851, path='nist-cybersecurity-framework-csf', name=' NIST Cybersecurity Framework: A Comprehensive Guide', 1='{type=string, value=NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)}', 2='{type=string, value= A comprehensive guide to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and how to use it to protect your organization's IT infrastructure and data.

{tableName=glossary, name=Network Segregation, description= Network Segregation is the process of separating different types of traffic on a network. It is used to ensure that sensitive information is kept secure by isolating it from other types of traffic. It can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including the use of virtual local area networks (VLANs), firewalls, and network access control lists (ACLs). Network segregation can also be used to limit the amount of traffic that is sent to or from certain areas of a network. This can help to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information, as well as to improve network performance by reducing the amount of traffic that needs to be processed by the network., topic=null, hs_path=network-segregation}--
