This tag is used to describe the series of actions, defenses and countermeasures that are implemented by a user or organization to protect sensitive information. A digital security strategy typically includes layers of defenses such as network security, application security and physical security (e.g., locks on doors). Users can also apply digital security strategies to applications like email with secure email gateways that enable encryption and decryption of messages. Digital Security strategies should also include peripheral elements such as workflow policies that dictate how sensitive data must be handled and stored.
Digital security topics include password protection, data encryption, online privacy, and user account safety. These are common subjects related to the idea of keeping users' information safe from malicious software or other hacking attempts. Additional topics related to digital security include antivirus programs, malware detection, website safety policies, and information protection strategies.
