Cybersecurity principles of IT focus on a set of practices intended to keep a corporate infrastructure secure. These practices include, but are not limited to, system, data, internal, external, and physical security. The principles are designed to prevent unauthorized access or alterations of a corporate environment. By understanding how cybersecurity principles are defined, they can be used to develop a comprehensive, corporate-specific, security policy.

Using the format of your choice, create a chart related to the cybersecurity principles listed below:

  • Separation (of domains/duties)
  • Isolation
  • Encapsulation
  • Modularity
  • Simplicity of design (economy of mechanism)
  • Minimization of implementation (a least common mechanism)
  • Open design
  • Complete mediation
  • Least privilege
  • Fail-safe defaults/Fail secure
  • Least astonishment (psychological acceptability)
  • Minimize trust surface (reluctance to trust)
  • Usability
  • Trust relationships

For each of the principles listed, include the following:

  • Definition (1-2 sentences written in your own words)
  • Explanation of why each principle is important to security and how it enables the development of security mechanisms to implement desired security policies
