Over the years, ensuring cyber security has always been a challenge for businesses or organizations across the globe. As this is the golden era of digital transformation, cyber-attacks evolve every day as attackers become more inventive. Interconnection of several sectors, expansion of exposure points and concentration of assets are some of the prevailing trends that are exposing the critical infrastructure to increased risks. However, it becomes difficult to accurately define cybersecurity solutions and identify good cybersecurity.

Cyber security refers to a broad range of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect computer networks, devices, and programs from cyber-attacks, unauthorized access, and data damages. Cybersecurity is also termed as Information Technology Security or electronic information security. Cyber security is an interconnected ecosystem of networks. Network security, application security, endpoint security, data security, identity, and access management, cloud security, mobile security, and others are the most vital elements of cybersecurity.

Anything that is connected to the internet for communication purposes, including mobiles, smart devices, computers, and others are at risk of data breach activities. This includes communication systems such as emails, text messages, and others, transportation systems including airplane navigation systems, traffic management systems, government databases such as social security numbers, tax records, also the financial systems, healthcare systems, and the educational systems. 

Furthermore, cyber security is a robust process that offers capabilities of prediction, prevention, response, and detection of fraudulent cyber activities. Prediction helps to take preventive measures to identify attackers, and their objectives and implement effective measures before any undesired cyber-attack takes place. Prevention involves securing the computing environment with enhanced and updated tools, and technologies and other best-known methods will help to prevent attacks and loss of data.

Report Coverage

Cyber security is a broad concept. Primarily there are three basic principles of cybersecurity, including confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Confidentiality includes information that is confidential and needs to be shared only with a selected number of resources. For instance, if the bank account credentials are leaked, the concerned person will suffer from financial losses. Integrity involves keeping information being duplicated or altered. When a virus or malware enters into a database or any other system, it will scramble all the data and prevent the concerned people from accessing the data. Availability refers to ensuring that those who rely entirely on specific and accurate information can access it. Availability is correlated with integrity. But, availability also involves things like preventing people from accessing confidential data from the internet.
