What iscybersecurity?

Qu'est-ce que la cybersécurité ?

Cybersecurity is a neologism referring to the role of all laws, policies, tools, devices, security concepts and mechanisms, risk management methods, actions, training, best practices and technologies that can be used to protect people and tangible and intangible IT assets (connected directly or indirectly to a network) of states and organizations.

ANSSI, the French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems, defines cybersecurity as a state sought for an information system enabling it to withstand events from cyberspace likely to compromise the availability, integrity or confidentiality of the data stored, processed or transmitted and the related services that these systems offer or make accessible.

Cybersecurity uses information systems security techniques and is based on the fight against cybercrime and the development of cyber defence.
