What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security consists of technologies, processes, and controls designed to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from cyber-attacks. Effective cybersecurity reduces the risk of cyber-attacks and protects against the unauthorized exploitation of systems, networks, and technologies. Cyber Security focuses on protecting computer systems from unauthorized access or being otherwise damaged or made inaccessible.

It is important because the government, military, corporate, financial, and medical organizations collect, process, and store unprecedented amounts of data on computers and other devices. A significant portion of that data can be sensitive information, whether that be intellectual property, financial data, personal information, or other types of data for which unauthorized access or exposure could have negative consequences. Organizations transmit sensitive data across networks and to other devices in the course of doing business, and cybersecurity describes the discipline dedicated to protecting that information and the systems used to process or store it. As the volume and adulteration of cyber-attacks grow, companies and organizations, especially those that are tasked with safeguarding information relating to national security, health, or financial records, need to take steps to protect their sensitive business and personnel information.
