Cyber-security is the discipline dedicated to protecting sensitive information in government, military, corporate, and financial organizations. It covers the entire network and devices used in these organizations to process, transmit and store data.

Security measures must be built into the organization’s processes, and everyone must understand the risks to their data. This requires a well-designed cyber security culture, reinforced by regular training for all employees.

The main entities that must be protected are endpoint devices like computers, smart devices and routers; networks; and the cloud. The technology required to keep this information secure includes next-generation firewalls, DNS filtering, malware protection, antivirus software, and email security solutions.

Attackers use a variety of methods to gain access to your system, including viruses that spread by attaching themselves to emails and other documents. They may also employ distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, in which multiple systems disrupt a server, website or other network resource.

Hackers are increasingly targeting individual devices that connect to the internet or other networks, such as smart TVs, voice assistants and connected baby monitors. These devices can contain passwords and other confidential information that hackers can use to break into your system.

Cyber-security is an ever-evolving field that is critical to ensuring the continuity of business operations. Regardless of industry, every organization must adopt this approach to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their data.
