Information security (InfoSec for short) and cybersecurity are not synonymous. Information security is a broader area concerned with the protection of information in all formats. Cybersecurity is the protection of cyberspace against any sort of nefarious intent.
There is obviously a large amount of overlap between the field of cybersecurity and information security today because most of our information is collected, stored and transmitted digitally. That’s why you not only need comprehensive information security policies but an effective cybersecurity setup. In fact, to successfully implement an effective infosec policy, you practically can’t do without cybersecurity.
