What is cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity consists of all the technologies and practices that keep computer systems and electronic data safe. And, in a world where more and more of our business and social lives are online, it’s an enormous and growing field.
Why cybersecurity is important?
Cybersecurity is one of the most urgent issues of the day. Computer networks have always been the target of criminals, and it is likely that the danger of cybersecurity breaches will only increase in the future as these networks expand, but there are sensible precautions that organizations can take to prevent and minimize losses from those who seek to do harm.
Getting hacked isn’t just a direct threat to the confidential data companies need. It can also ruin their relationships with customers, and even place them in significant legal jeopardy. With new technology, from self-driving cars to internet-enabled home security systems, the dangers of cybercrime become even more serious.
With the right level of preparation and collaboration with industry security experts, most cyberattacks can be completely prevented, and in the event an attack is successful it is possible to minimize damages, and fully recover from a cyber breach and its consequences.
