What is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is the application of technologies, processes, and controls to protect computers and networks from potential cyber-attacks. It aims to reduce the risk of these attacks and protect against the unauthorised exploitation of computer systems.

Sound knowledge and understanding of cyber security will help protect you against malicious attacks to access, change or delete sensitive data. Cyber security is used as a tool to prevent attacks that aim to disable or tamper with a computer system’s operations.
