What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is the practice of protecting electronic information by mitigating information risks and vulnerabilities. Information risks can include unauthorised access, use, disclosure, interception, or destruction of data. Data can include but is not limited to the confidential information of a business or individual users. 

Cyber security includes implementing policies and procedures to protect networks, computers, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorised access. 

Threats can come from various sources, such as viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, and adware. Cyber security also includes measures to protect against denial of service (DoS) attacks, phishing attacks, and other cybercrime.

The need for cyber security has become increasingly important as computers and the internet have grown. With more and more businesses and individuals using these technologies, there is a greater need to protect sensitive information from cyber threats. Cyber security is not just about protecting data but also about ensuring that the systems and networks that store and process data are secure.

There are several cyber security risks that businesses and individuals face. Cybercriminals are constantly devising new ways to exploit weaknesses in computer systems and networks. As such, it is crucial for companies and individuals to stay up-to-date on the latest cyber security threats and to take steps to protect their data.

Businesses and individuals can take many cyber security measures to protect their data. 

These measures include:

  • using strong passwords and password management tools
  • encrypting sensitive data
  • implementing two-factor authentication
  • using anti-virus and firewalls
  • keeping software up-to-date
  • restricting access to data and systems
  • regular backups of data
  • learn about phishing scams, be very suspicious of emails, phone calls, and flyers.


Cyber security is an essential issue for businesses and individuals alike. By taking measures to protect their data, companies and individuals can help reduce cybercriminals’ risks.

When should I think about cyber security for my business?

Cyberattacks are an increasingly common form of attack that can significantly impact companies financially and operationally. The reputational damage associated with security defence breaches is also becoming more prevalent in today’s world, where everything seems accessible through technology such as smartphones or tablets.

Cyber security is a top priority for every business, and you must have the right tools to ensure your company stays protected. A cyber security strategy will help deter malware attacks, keep data safe from hackers who want access at all costs, and provide peace of mind when travelling abroad or engaging on social media sites like Facebook.
