Security Operations Concepts
The topic of security operations covers a wide variety of concepts, which we describe in the following sections. The common theme among these concepts is protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information assets. Information is protected through controls and the reduction of threats and vulnerabilities.
Avoiding single points of failure
A single point of failure is any part of a system, process, or network whose failure can cause the whole system to become unavailable. The technical lexicon is full of strategies and solutions that attempt to address single points of failure: reliable systems design, high-availability (HA), clustering, mirroring, virtualization, and more.
