What is Cyber Security and why is it important?
Cybersecurity is the process of guarding against digital assaults on systems, networks, and programmes. These cyberattacks are often intended to gain access to, change, or delete sensitive information; extort money from users; or disrupt routine company activities.
Cybersecurity is vital because it safeguards all types of data against theft and harm. Sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and government and business information systems are all included. No business can protect itself against data breach operations without a cyber-security programme, making it an easy target for thieves.
