Needs to develop a cybersecurity culture Protecting the information is a crucial issue to take into consideration in developing the information society. At the crossroads of technological, legal, sociological, economic, and political fields, cybersecurity is an interdisciplinary domain by nature. Depending on the country, a national cybersecurity approach must reflect the vision, the culture and the civilization of a nation as well as meeting the specific security needs of the local context in which it is introduced. Because cybersecurity has a global dimension and deals with a large range of issues as: x ICT uses or misuses; x Technical measures; x Economic, legal and political issues; it is important to develop a general cybersecurity culture in order to raise the level of un- derstanding of each member of the cybersecurity chain. A cybersecurity culture deals with key economic, legal, and social issues related to in- formation security in order to contribute to helping countries get prepared to face issues 4

15 and challenges linked to information and communication technologies (ICT) deploy- ment, uses and misuses.” 5 Awareness as a cybersecurity pillar Using computers and information resources via the Internet implies increasing depend- ency, ICT access and vulnerability. This introduces a new kind of risk that must be taken into account when developing e-services. Master technological and informational risks have to be done in allowing an efficient use of information and communication technology, and also allowing privacy in respect of fundamental human rights. It is not enough to promote development of connecting points to the Internet for accessibility; the information infrastructure must be reliable. This means that ad hoc performances, continued services, quality of service and quality of data must be guaran- teed. At the same time, national legal frameworks should be developed in conformity with international regulations. Carrying out activities over the Internet presupposes that four major issues have been resolved, namely: x First, network infrastructure should exist with if possible; high-speed data transfer capabilities and quality of services. The cost of use should be affordable and in correlation with the performances and quality of service obtained. That implies having a valid underpinning economic model and an effective cost management process. x Second, contents and services should meet users’ needs in term of pertinence, quality, flexibility and accessibility. As previously stated, cost must be effective. x Third, e-services should be reliable and trustworthy, integrity, confidentiality, authenticity and availability security criteria have to be guaranteed. Furthermore, traceability and proof must be possible for third party control.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
