What the Security Is (hereinafter, the Lectio) is the lesson part of the Cyber Security Essentials lesson that introduces its participants to CNM Cabin. This lesson belongs to the Introduction to CNM Cyber session of the CNM Cyber Orientation.


The predecessor lectio is What Pipeline Is.


The CNM Cyber Team strives to protect both the systems and data of CNM Cyber. The Team distinguishes two branches of the security governance.
The policy branch can be compared with the legislative branch of the government. This branch defines policies that serve as the law of the CNM Cyber land.
For instance, the privacy policy defines how sensitive user data can be collected and shared. The backup and recovery policy determines how the systems and data shall be protected from disaster losses. User access policy sets up what users can access what resources. Informational resource policy outlines the database management rules. Finally, human resource policy regulates the clearances and other practices towards the personnel that need to access the sensitive data because of their professional duties.
The executive branch executes the policies and, especially, cyber-security, which is protecting computers, data, and networks from potential attacks or unauthorized access.
To protect web operations of CNM Cyber, all of its website are secured with SSL certificates. So, when you communicate with the Cyber over the Internet, all of the communications are encrypted and practically impossible to hack.
The CNM Cyber Team is constantly applying new security patches and is following security recommendations to protect its software systems from end-user applications and up to computing servers of the Cyber. Specific information related to a particular system can be found in its product epic at CNM Wiki.
The access to the highest risk areas such as administrative projects of CNM Lab is protected by the public key infrastructure (PKI). This technology is the most secure from all that are available on the market.
