OpSec: A Vital Part of Any Cybersecurity Program
We all have something to hide. Even though humans are social beings, there are some things we want to keep to ourselves, and it’s been like that since the beginning of humankind. In the digital world, the format in which those secrets are kept is what we keep in focus, in contrast to the ’40s or ’50s, when discretion was governed by the belief, “Silence means security”. Today, we need more than silence. Operation Security, or OpSec, is a term known throughout the military to describe their strategies of identifying and protecting critical information that, if uncovered, can lead to enemy having an advantage over them. In the cyber-realm, it’s not that different. In this article, we’re going to uncover the world of OpSec, the role it plays in cybersecurity, how these strategies relate to our modern times and why it should be important to everyone—not only when it comes to defending ourselves against enemies, but also in our everyday lives.
