Computer Security

Computer security is the protection of computer systems and information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. It is a broad field that encompasses a wide range of topics, including:

  • Network security: This is the protection of computer networks from unauthorized access or attack. It includes things like firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and security policies.
  • Application security: This is the protection of software applications from vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers. It includes things like code review, penetration testing, and security testing.
  • Data security: This is the protection of sensitive data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or destruction. It includes things like encryption, access control, and data backups.
  • Operational security: This is the protection of computer systems from threats that arise from human error or negligence. It includes things like user training, incident response procedures, and security awareness.

Cybersecurity

Cyber security is the practice of protecting computer systems and networks from digital attacks. These cyberattacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users via ransomware; or interrupting normal business processes.

There are many different types of cyber security threats, but some of the most common include:

  • Malware: Malware is software that is designed to harm a computer system. Malware can take many forms, including viruses, worms, trojans, and ransomware.
  • Phishing: Phishing is a type of social engineering attack that involves sending emails or text messages that appear to be from a legitimate source. The goal of phishing is to trick the recipient into clicking on a malicious link or providing personal information.
  • Data breaches: A data breach is an incident in which sensitive data is exposed to unauthorized individuals. Data breaches can occur due to a variety of factors, including hacking, human error, and system vulnerabilities.

Cyber security is a critical issue for businesses of all sizes. In today's digital world, businesses rely on their computer systems and networks to operate. A cyber attack can have a devastating impact on a business, including financial losses, reputational damage, and loss of customer trust.

Cyber security is an ongoing challenge, but by taking steps to protect themselves, businesses can help to mitigate the risks of cyber attacks.
