23 minute read | October.11.2022

In collaboration with S-RM, members of Orrick’s Cyber, Privacy & Data Innovation team contributed to a new cyber security ‘jargon buster’ published by Thomson Reuters Practical Law. This helpful glossary is for anyone tasked with understanding cybersecurity, especially professionals dealing with cyber incidents or the complex reports produced post-incident. From Honeypot to Horizontal Privilege Escalation, the definitions in this guide are organized in alphabetical order and cover four categories, including:

  • Day-to-day operations
  • Cyber incidents
  • Attacker techniques and modus operandi
  • Forensic investigation-related terms.
