What is Cyber Security?
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These cyberattacks usually aim to access, modify or destroy sensitive information; Extorting money from users or disrupting normal business processes are the main targets of cyber attackers. Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is particularly difficult today because there are more devices than humans and attackers are becoming more innovative.
