{tableName=glossary, name=Data Access Management, description= Data Access Management is the practice of controlling and monitoring the access of users to an organization’s data and systems. It is a critical component of an organization’s security strategy, as it can help prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data and systems, as well as ensure that only authorized users are able to access the data and systems. Data Access Management can include the implementation of policies, procedures, and technologies to ensure that only those users with the appropriate access rights are able to access the data and systems. Examples of Data Access Management technologies include user authentication, authorization, and access control. Additionally, Data Access Management can be used to ensure that the data and systems are being used in accordance with the organization’s security policies and procedures. Data Access Management is essential to protect the organization’s data and systems from unauthorized access and to ensure that only authorized users are able to access the data and systems., topic=null, hs_path=data-access-management}--
{tableName=glossary, name=Cyber Resiliency, description= Cyber Resiliency is the ability of an organization or individual to maintain or quickly recover from a cyber attack or other cyber incident. It is the process of planning, preparing, and responding to cyber security threats or incidents in order to reduce the impact of the attack and ensure the continuity of operations and services. Cyber Resiliency involves proactive risk management, incident response, and post-incident recovery activities. This includes the development of policies and procedures, the implementation of technical solutions, and the training of personnel in order to mitigate the risk of a cyber attack. Cyber Resiliency also includes the ability to detect, respond to, and recover from an attack in a timely manner, as well as the ability to restore normal operations and services as quickly and efficiently as possible., topic=null, hs_path=cyber-resiliency}--
{tableName=glossary, name=SOC 2 Trust Principles, description= SOC 2 Trust Principles are a set of criteria used to evaluate and assess the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a service organization’s systems and services. The Trust Principles are based on the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) Trust Services Principles and Criteria, which are designed to provide assurance about the security, availability, and privacy of a service organization’s systems and services. The SOC 2 Trust Principles are focused on the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a service organization’s systems, services, and data. The Trust Principles are used to assess the design, implementation, and operating effectiveness of a service organization’s controls, procedures, and systems. The Trust Principles are designed to help service organizations develop, maintain, and demonstrate effective security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of their systems and services., topic=null, hs_path=soc-2-trust-principles}--

The guide will provide an in-depth look at the five core functions of the CSF, which are Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. It will also explain the importance of the CSF and how it can help organizations of all sizes to protect their networks and data from cyber threats. The guide will also provide an overview of the various tools and resources available to help organizations implement the CSF, as well as best practices for using the framework to ensure the security of their systems. Finally, the guide will provide a comprehensive look at the various roles and responsibilities associated with the CSF, including the roles of the organization, its employees, and external partners. This guide is an essential resource for any organization looking to protect its networks and data from the ever-evolving cyber threats.}', 15='{type=list, value=[{id=97620570503, name='NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF)'}]}'}], hs_path=nist-cybersecurity-framework-csf-vs-gdpr}--
{tableName=glossary, name=Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), description= An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a type of security software that monitors a network or system for malicious activity or policy violations. It gathers and analyzes information from various areas within a network or system to identify possible security breaches, which include both intrusions (attempts to compromise security) and misuse (violations of policy). The ultimate goal of an IDS is to detect, alert, and respond to any suspicious activity or policy violations. IDSs can be either signature-based or anomaly-based. Signature-based IDSs detect known malicious activities, such as a specific type of attack, by comparing the information gathered to a database of known attack signatures. Anomaly-based IDSs, on the other hand, detect suspicious activities by comparing the information gathered to a baseline of normal behavior. IDSs are typically deployed on networks, servers, and endpoints to monitor for malicious activity. They can also be used to detect and respond to insider threats and data exfiltration. IDSs can be used in conjunction with other security tools, such as firewalls, to provide a comprehensive security solution., 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.

{tableName=glossary, name=Vendor Risk Management (VRM), description= Vendor Risk Management (VRM) is an enterprise-wide approach to managing risks associated with third-party vendors. It involves an organization’s proactive identification, assessment, and mitigation of risks posed by vendors. VRM involves a comprehensive review of the vendor’s security and privacy policies, documentation, and processes. It also requires an organization to monitor vendors’ performance on an ongoing basis. This includes evaluating the vendor’s ability to meet requirements, maintain compliance, and adhere to industry standards. VRM also requires organizations to have a clear understanding of the potential risks associated with vendors, including financial, reputational, legal, and operational risks.
