 The LPHQ Encyclopedic Dictionary of Cybersecurity (EDoC). EDoC provides a basic foundation for anyone who requires simple defintions of cybersecurity terms.

Cybersecurity is described and defined by hundreds of terms. Only a few, such as adware or virus, are generally known.

EDoC defines only 40 terms. Each definiton is the basis of an article, written in plain English, that describes the term and provides context to help you decide how to handle a specific cybersecurity threat.
