What is the difference between information assurance and cybersecurity?

0

Information assurance focuses on the confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication and validation of data. These are all accepted, well-understood and mostly technical issues. Cybersecurity focuses on securing the safety of computers and computer systems in a networked environment—security issues typically are approached from a broader background (socio-economic, political, psychological etc.).

When it comes to protecting a company and its customers, Cybersecurity and Information Assurance go hand in hand. If Information Assurance is the general term for protecting information, both digital and physical, Cybersecurity is more about protecting digital information. In this case, I work with https://fidusinfosec.com/penetration-testing/ to protect all the client’s data from cyber-attacks and not only. As for me, this is one of the most important things a company that has to deal with the client’s personal data should do. They’re both important and necessary to prevent unauthorized actions and leaks.
