Common Questions about Operational Cybersecurity

What is Operational Cybersecurity?

Operational cybersecurity refers to the practice of securing and protecting the day-to-day operations, systems, and assets of an organization from cyber threats and attacks. It involves implementing measures, policies, and procedures to safeguard digital assets, networks, and data, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical information and resources. Operational cybersecurity encompasses various activities such as network monitoring, vulnerability management, incident response, access control, and security awareness training, all aimed at mitigating risks and maintaining the security posture of an organization in the face of evolving cyber threats.

Why is Operational Cybersecurity important?

Operational Cybersecurity is important because it protects sensitive information from being accessed by unauthorized parties, thereby preventing adversaries from gaining a competitive advantage or causing harm. It is crucial for maintaining the security and effectiveness of operations, especially in critical infrastructures (like military, government, and corporate environments), by safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

How can organizations implement effective Operational Cybersecurity measures?

Organizations can implement effective Operational Cybersecurity measures by:

  • Conducting regular training and awareness programs for employees to recognize and protect sensitive information.
  • Establishing policies and procedures that outline how to handle and secure critical information.
  • Utilizing cyber security measures, such as access controls, encryption, and secure communication channels.
  • Utilizing specific cyber-security appliances like UTM, DLP, IDS and others.
  • Monitoring and responding to security breaches or suspicious activities.
  • Continuously assessing and updating practices to adapt to evolving threats and vulnerabilities.
What are some common Operational Cybersecurity mistakes or oversights?

Some common Operational Cybersecurity mistakes or oversights include:

  • Failing to correctly use and implement state-of-the art security measures.
  • Failing to identify and close attack surfaces.
  • Failing to identify all sources of sensitive information, including digital footprints and social media.
  • Underestimating the capabilities or intentions of potential adversaries.
  • Neglecting to regularly update and enforce security policies and procedures.
  • Overlooking the importance of training employees on security awareness.
  • Failing to secure physical and digital communication channels, leading to unauthorised access or eavesdropping.
