Technical Security (TECHSEC)

Definition - What does Technical Security (TECHSEC) mean?

Technical security (TECHSEC) refers to a series of techniques used for authentication and protection against theft of sensitive data and information, usually in organizations. It authenticates the users' login and data such that only verified user applications can read and access data and applications. Technical security has a number of components, including:

  • Cyber security and investigation
  • Security architecture for software applications
  • IT security strategy
  • Network authentication management
  • Specialized engineered solutions for organizational security

An organization can usually tailor the type of services needed according to resource demands.

Techopedia explains Technical Security (TECHSEC)

Technical security is a very common type of security used in organizations which use computers or nearly any type of technology. It deals with detecting loopholes in a security system and finding adequate solutions to address the risk of technical failure or hacking. Since most data exists in a non-physical form, with the shifting of data to cloud drives and handheld gadgets, it is difficult to ensure a secure session and transfer of information. Security controls are lacking in untrusted networks and devices, as well as in interactions with non-authorized systems. These are some of the main causes behind an increased need for technical security between devices and over networks.
