Cybersecurity in Jordan is the protection of internet-connected systems, including hardware, software, and data, from cyberattacks. In the computing context, the security composes the cyber security and the physical security — both are used by enterprises to protect against unauthorized access to data centers and other computerized systems.
Information security, which is made to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data, is a subset of cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is very important because the government, military, corporate, financial, and the medical organizations collect, process, and store unprecedented amounts of data on computers and other devices.
A significant portion of that data can be very sensitive data, whether that be intellectual property, financial data, personal information, or other types of data for which unauthorized access or exposure could have negative consequences.
Types of Threats in Cybersecurity in Jordan
- Ransomware is a type of malware that involves an attacker locking the victim’s computer system files — typically through encryption — and demanding a payment to decrypt and then unlock them.
- Malware is any file or the program used to harm the computer user, such as worms, computer viruses, Trojan horses and spyware.
- Social engineering is the attack that depends on human interaction to trick the users into breaking security methods in order to gain sensitive information that is typically protected.
- Phishing is a form of fraud where fraudulent emails are sent that similar emails from reputable sources; however, the intention of these emails is to steal sensitive data, such as credit card or login information.
The purpose of cybersecurity is to support prevent cyberattacks, data breaches, and identity the theft and can aid in risk management. When a company has a strong sense of network security and the effective incident response plan, it is better able to prevent and mitigate cyber-attacks. For example, end-user protection defends information and guards against loss or theft while also scanning computers for malicious code.
Cybersecurity in Jordan Strategy
- Risk Management
Cybersecurity risk assessments are the starting point for a cybersecurity strategy. Our cybersecurity consultants can carry out such an assessment for you, or you can go on a certificated course to learn how to do this yourself, and/or you can purchase a cybersecurity risk management toolkit.
- Enterprise and Security Architecture
Increasingly, organizations deploy enterprise architecture frameworks to design their IT and security infrastructures so that they are aligned with and support their business architecture.
- Security Audit, Intrusion Testing
Our cybersecurity consultancy services include auditing for the existence and effectiveness of cybersecurity controls. These audits are carried out against audit frameworks. We also offer a CREST-accredited IT Health Check and Penetration Testing service.
- Regulation and Certification Controls
Regulatory compliance is a key aspect of effective cyber governance. Regulators are paying more attention to the cyber breaches, and fines are increasingly onerous. Reputational damage from the regulatory breaches can be significant. companies may have to maintain compliance with the Code of Connection requirements, whether these are G-Cloud, PSN, IG Toolkit/N3 or Gambling Commission requirements.
- Recovery & Continuity Plans
Cyber resilience is a crucial underlying cybersecurity philosophy. Sooner or later any cyber defense will be breached. Organizations need to develop cyber resilience, a continuum of tested processes that enable it to respond appropriately to incidents of all sizes, including those which escalate and threaten the survival of the organization itself.
- Cybersecurity skills
Cybersecurity is an increasingly complex area. Organizations want to employ the staff who have adequate skills and knowledge or, recognizing that there is a global shortage of such skills, ensure that security staff acquires and maintain appropriate skills. Information Technology Governance is the leading provider of certificated cyber security training services and a unique cybersecurity learning pathway. As an organization, we also offer a growing range of security products and solutions for securing content, including both encryption technologies and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technologies.
