Cybersecurity vs. Data Protection

When it comes to protection of data, the terms Cybersecurity and data protection – are used synonymously. Both strive to protect data from being misused, lost, changed, exfiltrated or published without proper authorization and control mechanisms. However, there is one major difference.

Cybersecurity: Big Opportunities for Big Data

What has Big Data been up to? Big Data has been a major topic in the IT realm for years. The terms Big Data and Big Data analytics are generally used to describe the potential for new insights into our environment by making sense of the rapidly increasing amount of information produced by the growing number of connected devices. But what is the bigger picture in the potential of Big Data in cybersecurity?

Drivers at Risk? Securing the Connected Car

The next revolution in the automotive sector is digital with the prospect of autonomous driving in the distant future. Two worlds converge. One of short product lifecycles and rapid innovation, and one of longer planning periods on modest innovation. Today’s cars may have up to 100 electronic control units (ECU) with multilayered runtime environments, multi-source software, multi-core CPU’s and million lines of software code, connected by controller area network (CAN) that steer everything from engine electronics to entertainment systems.

The Need and Challenges of an International and National Approach to Cybersecurity

The growing complexity of the interconnectedness of physical and virtual infrastructure – servers, databases, microchips, cables, mobile phones, cars, machines and so on – through information and communication technology (ICT) are not only diffusing globally but are of concern to many. Beyond its impact on leadership, management or institutions, there is a common fear that this development offers more and more avenues for disruptions in the “digital supply chain” and thus increases the vulnerability of the information society and the global economy to system failure….
