This article describes why every organisation needs a hardware security module (HSM).
This article describes the benefits the HSM brings and explains the difference between GP and payment HSM.
In the context of cybersecurity, a hadware security module (HSM) is a hardware device that is used as a dedicated storage for cryptographic keys and a dedicated execution environment for cryptographic operations.
Definition: Code signing is a process of digitally signing a program, file, software update or executable, so that it’s authenticity and integrity can be verified upon installation and execution.
Today's cyber attackers are constantly looking for ways to exploit vulnerabilities and infiltrate organizations. To keep up with this evolving threat landscape, security teams must be on the lookout for potential risks around the clock. Since most organizations simply cannot afford to have 24x7 security teams, managed detection and response (MDR) services have become a critical aspect of any modern security stack.
On 23 July 2014, the European Union established eIDAS (electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services) that regulates electronic transactions, electronic signatures, involved bodies, and their embedded processes. Having taken effect on 1 July 2016, eIDAS provides a safe way for users to perform actions such as electronic funds transfers or transactions with government agencies.
The European Union eIDAS (electronic Identification, Authentication and trust Services) was enacted on 23 July 2014 and put into effect on 1 July 2016. eIDAS mandates stringent guidelines for security protections with digital signatures, electronic transactions, involved bodies, and their embedded practices.
Most people associate the word ‘blockchain’ with cryptocurrency and given the amount of press coverage the latter has received, particularly in the last two years, it may seem that the two are indistinguishable, but that is not the case.
Although we do not give much thought to hardware security modules (HSMs), they are a critical element of security in an organisation’s IT infrastructure used for securing sensitive data.
