"It's a honour to be asked to contribute to this publication and we're thrilled to be helping raise awareness about social engineering and the human side of hacking in more ways," says Beauceron CEO David Shipley. 

The Language of Cybersecurity defines 52 terms that every business professional should know, especially professionals who do not specialize in cybersecurity. With increasing threats to cybersecurity, business professionals must able to speak intelligently with cybersecurity professionals and must understand their organization’s vulnerabilities, the threats posed by cybercriminals, defenses against those threats, and the legal and regulatory environment. An understanding of these terms is a starting place for understanding the cybersecurity landscape and defending your organization.

Each term was authored by an expert practitioner who provided a short definition, a statement of why that term is important, and an essay that explains why a business professional should understand the term.

The Language of Cybersecurity overs everything from basic vulnerabilities, such as social engineering, to defenses, such as behavioral monitoring, to advanced concepts, such as threat modeling and penetration testing. In addition there are short definitions of 78 additional terms. For those who want to dig deeper, there are more than 150 references for further exploration, including information on recent attacks on political targets, banking, and major corporations.
