What is Cyber Security??
Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.
In a computing context, security includes both cybersecurity and physical security. Ensuring cybersecurity requires coordinated efforts throughout an information system. Elements of cybersecurity include:
- Application Security
- Information Security
- Network Security
- E-mail Security
- Disaster Recovery/ Business continuity Planning
- End user education
Why is this so important? Because year over year, the worldwide spend for cyber security continues to grow: 71.1 billion in 2014 , and 75 billion in 2015 . And expected to reach 101 billion by 2018. Organizations are starting to understand that malware is a publicly available commodity that makes it easy for anyone to become a cyber attacker. And even more companies offer security solutions that do little to defend against attacks. Cyber security demands focus and dedication.
Organizations face many threats to their information systems and data. Understanding all the basic elements to cyber security is the first step to meeting those threats.
Now a days people are not aware of security and they don’t know what all things happening behind. If you consider in cooperate world like an enterprise business company, initially they are not concentrated on security aspects in IT. But after the major hit of Wanna Cry and Petya Ransomware they have started looking into the Security aspects in IT infa. Because they know about the after effects of the attack after seeing NHS attack.
If you take care of above mentioned security section , then we can assure you have completed a wide of inspection in Cyber security.
After seeing all these attacks small/medium/large companies without any comparison with company size they have started implementing many security measures. They knows that how a small attack will impact on their Business.
The hackers made the NHS doctors with use paper and pen after the major hit in the hospital. Considering the hospital business with other industries it have a huge impact since they deals with human life.
If we consider the wanna cry hit in NHS, all those worst situation happened by a small mistake of all unpatching all the devices after the vulnerability. Literally we can say before all the system admins are not aware of how patching will impact their day to day life. After the huge attack they came to know how it had affected.
