How Software Can Help to Meet Cybersecurity Due Diligence Requirements?

Without exception, all Internet users are at risk of being hacked, or rather, their computers, smartphones, and other devices with access to the global network.

The Help of Cybersecurity in Meeting Due Diligence Requirements

In view of the fact that in the modern world a lot depends on the stability of the operation of computerized systems, great attention is paid to cybersecurity. Cybersecurity can easily be compared to fire safety. If a building is not equipped with smoke alarms, fire extinguishing systems, etc., then its operation cannot be considered safe for residents or employees.

It’s the same with computers. If, for example, personal/secret data stored on hard drives can be accessed by anyone from anywhere, then their storage cannot be considered safe. And to keep them safe, you need to take comprehensive protection measures, which is what cybersecurity experts do. Thus, current research in the field of security of database management systems is limited to the development and improvement of the concept of confidentiality, availability, and integrity of data that does not meet the requirements of the modern world for security systems.

Attackers have come up with a large number of ways to gain access to personal information, disrupt the operation of computer programs, devices, or entire systems, such as Internet banking. Here are some of the most common types of network threats:

  • Phishing. This is one of the most frequently used hacking technologies, usually used to steal bank card numbers, authorization data (logins/passwords) on certain sites. Attackers can send e-mails or messages to potential victims in popular instant messengers (WhatsApp, Telegram, etc.), which, for example, contain calls to follow a link or download an application. By doing this, the user, without knowing it, will transfer the information they need to the fraudsters.
  • Malicious programs. This is a classic computer hacking technology that everyone knows about. Viruses are capable of performing any actions at all – up to providing full access to the victim’s computer. Malicious programs often get to PCs from the Internet along with other downloaded files or instead of what the user originally intended to download.

The Way of Meeting Due Diligence Requirements by Cybersecurity

The role of due diligence in meeting cybersecurity requirements is to simulate the operation of products to improve their characteristics; use simulators, training complex product application procedures. Staff training is a large area where the use of virtual reality is indispensable:

Deploying virtual machines as a managed service helps departments respond more quickly to employee needs and discover new opportunities. In addition, virtualized computers and applications can be quickly and conveniently provided to affiliates, as well as external, foreign and online employees who use iPad and Android tablets, as well as all the information necessary to perform the tasks. These advantages of virtualization enable the organization to create sustainable competitive advantages and increase its competitiveness not only in the field of innovative technologies but also in the use of information, change management, finance, human resources, and others.

Therefore, one of the most global problems in the design of intelligent information systems is the superiority of facilities and infrastructure over their services and functionality. In order to achieve the goals set for intelligent transport systems, i.e. to increase safety, information, and accessibility of transport and synchronize the interaction of different modes of transport, it is necessary to conduct a functional decomposition, based on which you can move to the goals in the form of functional features of ITS.
