Cybersecurity is the set of measures a business or organisation takes to protect data from damage, theft and being used as ransom. It covers all digital aspects of a business from information systems, to IoT devices, servers and the cloud. This includes protecting employee data, customer and supplier information, intellectual property, PHI, PII and more. It is important for businesses to recognise the benefits of having robust cyber security as it can improve brand trust, ensure compliance, boost productivity and even spark innovation.

There are a number of cyber attacks businesses can face, such as phishing emails, ransomware, distributed denial of service (DDoS) and man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks. Hackers can also exploit vulnerabilities in third-party and supply chain networks to gain unauthorised access.

A strong cybersecurity strategy requires both technical knowledge and problem-solving skills. It also needs to be continually updated as cyberattacks are constantly evolving and new technologies are introduced. As a result, this is one of the most complex aspects of managing a business.

It can also be challenging to get qualified in this field due to a lack of industry standards and training opportunities. However, the right qualifications can lead to lucrative career options in this fast-paced and dynamic sector.
