What is Cyber Security?
Cyber security is the protection of your computer and data from a cyber attack. In a nutshell, it’s about protecting your information from hackers and other attackers. Cyber security can be quite complex, as there are many different types and levels of threats, each with their own unique ways to exploit sensitive information.

Why is Cyber Security Important?
Cyber security is important because it protects our personal information and the data that is stored on our computers, laptops, and mobile devices. This can include everything from bank information to emails, social security numbers and even credit card numbers. Cyber security is also important because it helps protect our infrastructure from hackers and other bad actors who may want to harm us or our country. The cyber world has become increasingly complicated with the emergence of new technologies, so it’s important to keep up with the latest developments in order to stay safe online.
Cyber security is also important because it helps protect national security by promoting transparency and honesty within government agencies. In today’s world, there are many threats that could cause harm if not dealt with quickly or properly. For example, a hacker could steal sensitive military or government data or even compromise an agency’s computer network and cause severe damage to national security by leaking classified information onto the internet for everyone to see – something that shouldn’t happen!
How Does Cyber Security Work?
The goal of cyber security is to reduce the likelihood of an attacker accessing your company’s information. This can be done by implementing measures such as firewalls, antivirus software and encryption. There are several different types of attacks that can occur when someone tries to gain access to your network:
Phishing – A phishing attack happens when an attacker sends you a link in an email or social media post asking you to enter personal information. For example, they might ask you to login using your Facebook account or click on a link that directs you to another site where they want you to enter more personal details. The goal here is for them to get your username and password so they can log into your account without leaving any evidence behind for you to see (like cookies).
Social Engineering – This type of attack happens when someone tricks someone else into giving them their credentials by pretending
How to Defend Against Cyber Attacks?
Cyber attacks are on the rise. Your business is at risk of being hit by a cyber breach, and you need to know how to defend against it. According to Symantec, there were more than 2,000 data breaches in the first half of this year alone. And the number of organizations that have been breached is expected to grow from 40 percent in 2017 to 58 percent in 2021, according to a new report from Trend Micro. To avoid becoming the next victim of a cyber attack, you need to understand how hackers work and how they can find your data. Here are some tips for defending your organization from cyber attacks:
Understand How Hackers Operate:
Hackers are constantly looking for ways into any system they can get their hands on. They will use social engineering tactics such as phishing emails or fake websites that appear legitimate but are designed to get you to give up your password or enter sensitive information like credit card numbers or bank account information.
Watch Out For Suspicious Activity:
The best defense against hackers is not just monitoring network activity but also looking for unusual activity in accounts or web pages that don’t appear normal or have been changed since they were last accessed by someone else. You should also be on the lookout for telltale signs of a compromise
Conclusion: Cyber security is important and should be taken seriously.
