Cyber Security

Cyber-security refers to a lot of things which include technology, processes and even practices which are mainly used to protect networks, devices and even programs which have a lot of data, from malicious attacks. These attacks can mean trouble for a lot of people who have important data stored on the internet on their servers or networks. The attack, unauthorized access or even damage can be stopped by having good cyber-security. It can also be referred to as information technology security.

A lot of people do not realize the importance of cyber-security but let me tell you that it can be one of the most important things that are somehow overlooked so many times. It has proven to be a big issue because agencies and companies have completely forgotten that it is an important thing and must be treated with a lot of importance. It must be prioritized and must be done by experts. It is important because the military, government and corporate sectors have been known to employ it because of the amount of data that they are dealing with. A very large portion of data can be sensitive information, and it can be vulnerable to attackers and hackers alike and therefore, cyber-security must be employed whenever you have a lot of sensitive information stored on the internet. Here are some challenges and things that it should consider:

–    Network security

–    Endpoint security

–    Application security

–    Data security

–    Cloud security (very essential)

–    Mobile security (even more essential)

–    Disaster recovery

–    End-user education

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to cyber-security is the ever-evolving nature of security risks. All of these risks are because of the hackers and the cybercriminals who are out to cause issues to people who are just doing their job.
