Cybersecurity vs. Information Security

Cybersecurity is a subset of information security, and I cover those basics in my article,  Introduction to Cybersecurity and Information Security, which is continually updated.

I define it in my book on policies and procedures this way:

Cybersecurity: Cyber + security. The process of securing digital assets (and information assets while we are at it) and protecting from cybercrime. For practical convenience think of it being the same as information security. The objectives of cybersecurity are confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of digital assets.

Learn about cybersecurity to protect yourself and your organization, and to improve your decision making.
