GenCyber Cybersecurity Concepts: Defense in Depth, Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Thinking like an Adversary, and Keeping it Simple
In addition to these cybersecurity concepts, Augusta University's GenCyber program will also cover:
A fancy word for summarizing or explaining in a way that is easily understood.
Able to be inserted or removed from a project, each module has its own function interchangeable with other modules.
Separating areas where resources are located prevents accidents and loss of data, keeping information worlds from colliding.
Resources hardware, system objects, or processes must be separated and used as intended.
A process occurs when a task is executed. Keeping processes separate prevents the failure of one process from negatively impacting another.
Cyber security uses multiple layers of defenses for protecting information. If one layer is defeated, then the next one should catch it.
One of the ways to protect information is by limiting what people can do with your information and resources. You may allow someone to read a letter, but not edit it.
Minimization refers to having the least functionality of a program or device. The goal is to simplify and decrease the number of ways the software can be exploited.
We are no longer taking applications. Selection notifications will be made no later than May 20, 2022.
