Cyber security, also referred to as information technology security, is the act of protecting data and information systems from unauthorized access, unlawful modification and disruption, disclosure, corruption, and destruction.

Governments, military, corporations, financial institutions, hospitals and other businesses collect, process and store a great deal of confidential information on computers and transmit that data across networks to other computers. With the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attacks, ongoing attention is required to protect your sensitive business and personal information.

Network & Cyber Security: Threats and Methodology

Malicious software Known as malware, this threat includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, rootkits, adware, and other types of unwanted software. Everyone has heard of a scenario in which a user’s computer was compromised to some extent due to malicious software.

Unauthorized access. The threat of access to computer resources and data without consent of the owner. It might include approaching the system, trespassing, communicating,
storing and retrieving data, intercepting data, or any other methods that would interfere with a computer’s normal work. Access to data must be controlled to ensure privacy. Improper administrative access falls into this category as well.

System failure. Computer crashes or individual application failure pose a threat to your data security. This can happen due to several reasons, including user error, malicious activity, or hardware failure.

Social engineering. A sophisticated threat involving the act of manipulating users into revealing confidential information or performing other actions detrimental to the user. Almost everyone gets e-mails nowadays from unknown entities making false claims or asking for personal information; this is one example of social engineering.
