What are Cyber Security Standards?
These are rules that put in place to protect every aspect of an information system.
Also know as information system security standards, information security framework, security system compliance, information system compliance, risk management framework. There are also many types that specialize on different functions of a given industry. For example the medical industry has a standard for protecting patient information called HIPAA which is an acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act that was passed by Congress in 1996. And there is a standard for protecting point of sale and merchant systems called PCI. There are many others.. but the mission is the same… to protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of important data.
