CYBER SECURITY refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. Protection of Internet-connected systems – hardware, software, and data – from cyber attacks has become very necessary in the fast-paced twenty-first-century business world. Information security is equally vulnerable and hence security has been designed to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

CYBER SECURITY

                                                                                                        A Beginner’s Course

CYBER SECURITY   refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. Protection of Internet-connected systems – hardware, software, and data – from cyber attacks has become very necessary in the fast-paced twenty-first-century business world. Information security is equally vulnerable and hence security has been designed to maintain the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

ELEMENTS OF CYBER SECURITY:

  • Application security
  • Information security
  • Network security
  • Operation security
  • Disaster recovery / Business continuity planning
  • End-user education

One of the most problematic elements of Cybersecurity is the constantly evolving nature of security risks. As a result of such security risks, investments in Cyber Security technologies and services are increasing since 2017. Gartner predicts worldwide spending on information security products and services would reach $ 936 million in 2019.

TYPES OF CYBERSECURITY THREATS:

  • RANSOMWARE – A type of malware – an attacker locking the victim’s computer system files – typically through encryption – and demanding a payment to decrypt and unlock them.
  • MALWARE – Any file or program used to harm a computer user, such as worms, computer viruses, Trojan horses and spyware.
  • SOCIAL ENGINEERING – is an attack that relies on human interaction to trick users into breaking security procedures in order to gain sensitive information that is typically protected.
  • PHISHING – is a form of fraud where fraudulent emails are sent that resemble emails from reputable sources. However, the intention of these emails is to steal sensitive data, such as credit cards or login information.
  • CYBERBULLYING – is an act of frustrating or giving trouble to innocent computer users by posting negative remarks about them

WHAT CYBER SECURITY CAN PREVENT?

Cyber Security can help prevent cyber attacks, data breaches, and identity theft. It can help in risk management. When an organization has a strong sense of network security and an effective incident response plan it is better able to prevent and mitigate these attacks. As an example, end-user protection defends information and guards against loss or theft while also scanning computers for malicious code.

CAREERS IN CYBER SECURITY:

As Cyber threat landscape continues to grow and emerging threats, such as the internet of things, require hardware and software skills, it is estimated that there are 1 million unfilled Cybersecurity jobs worldwide. IT professionals and other computer specialists are needed in security jobs such as –

Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) – Every company has one such officer               Security Engineer – who protects company assets and Quality Control                                         Security Architect –  responsible for Planning, analyzing, designing and testing                         Security Analyst –  Quality Control, security audits and protecting files
