What is Cyber Security?
Cyber security is the application of technologies, processes, and controls to protect systems, networks, programs, devices, and data from cyber-attacks. It aims to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks and protect against the unauthorized exploitation of systems, networks, and technologies. Also known as information technology (IT) security, cybersecurity measures are designed to combat threats against networked systems and applications, whether those threats originate from inside or outside of an organization. A strong cybersecurity strategy has layers of protection to defend against cybercrime, including cyber-attacks that attempt to access, change, or destroy data; extort money from users or the organization, or aim to disrupt normal business operations.
