Cyber security is the protection of systems connected to the Internet, including hardware, software and data, against cyber attacks.
Security in the context of computing includes cyber security and physical security. Both are used by businesses to protect against unauthorized access to data centers and other computerized systems.
Information security, designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and usability of data, is a subset of cyber security.
Cyber Security has 3 most important building blocks.
Every employee should be aware of their role in preventing and mitigating cyber threats, and expert technical cyber security personnel should be fully aware of the latest skills and qualifications to mitigate and respond to cyber attacks.
All transactions on the Internet should be careful. They try to be successful by taking advantage of people’s carelessness in attacks such as e-mail and so on.
Cyber threats are changing rapidly, so processes need to be constantly reviewed to adapt to them.
By identifying the cyber risks your organization faces, you can start looking at what controls to implement and what technologies you need to do. Depending on your risk assessment and acceptance as an acceptable level of risk, various technologies can be used to prevent or reduce the impact of cyber risks.
