Cybersecurity is a broad term which refers to the technologies, processes, and practices that offer protection to businesses and organizations against cyber attacks, data breach, and attempts to gain unauthorized access to the system. Protection of a business’s important assets such as networks, programs, data, and devices stand at the core of cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is also called information technology security.
Why is there a Need for Cyber Security?
Cybersecurity prevents organizations from losing precious and confidential data. As the saying goes: Data is the New Oil. In today’s day and age, data has become extremely valuable. All organizations; whether governmental, non-governmental, or privately-owned collect, process, and covert huge amounts of data to information on a daily basis. Cyber attacks are aimed at stealing confidential data and using it for malicious purposes such as blackmail.
If a company comes under cyberattacks, it faces the following damages:
- Economic loss: the organization’s vital systems come to a halt and cannot function properly. Loss of precious data and disruptions in day-to-functions can cost organizations huge sums of money.
- Reputational loss: When an organization comes under a cyber attack, it sends a clear message to the stakeholders that this organization cannot be trusted with their confidential and sensitive information.
- Fines and Penalties: Companies often find themselves in hot water with local authorities if they come under a cyberattack. Fines and penalties are imposed for lack of effective compliance with data protection and privacy laws.
