Cybersecurity explained in five functionsJanuary 31, 2019
People are surprised to learn that cybersecurity pros don’t just get paid to hack all day. So, what else do they do? The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines “Five Functions of Cybersecurity” that organizations should use to manage cyber risks. They give you an inside look at what the cybersecurity field is really about, and the skills you need to bring to the table.
Can you look at problems from all angles, analyze every element of an organization’s systems and discover vulnerabilities?
Can organizations depend on you to be vigilant, follow procedures and protect them from threats?
Do you have the patience to sort through reams of logs looking for malicious activity, and recognize it when you see it?
Can you stop hackers in their tracks by quickly containing a breach, and incorporate lessons learned to improve the response plan?
Can you jump into action, execute the response plan and reduce the impacts of a cyber security incident?
