Cybersecurity Compliance Buzzwords with Marie Joseph and Christina Annechino, Trava

the Tea on Cybersecurity

On this episode, we welcome back both Christina Annechino and Marie Joseph to bring us back to a little more 101 on Cybersecurity.

“It's hard to have privacy without security, and to have effective security that requires strong protection of personal identifiable information, or PII. So security, privacy, and compliance really must go hand in hand. If one is prioritized over the other, it can have an adverse effect.” - Christina Annechino

Find out the difference between a breach and an incident, the nuances of security, privacy, and compliance, and gain insights into the crucial importance of cyber hygiene. We'll also explore the key differences between data security and data protection, understanding acronyms like GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, and PIPEDA, and grasping the significance of maintaining asset inventories.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The difference between a breach, when a threat actor gains unauthorized access, and an incident, where data is compromised, is crucial for proactive security measures.

  • Understand frameworks vs. standards: Frameworks provide an overview of requirements for compliance and certification, while standards outline specific criteria that must be met, forming the foundation of cybersecurity best practices.

  • The importance of cyber hygiene or the tools, processes, and policies you need to maintain a strong security posture, enabling constant improvement in cybersecurity health within organizations.
