The Importance of Cyber Security
Published: 4 May 2023
Cyber security is critical when preventing data breaches, identity theft and other types of cybercrime. As our society relies so heavily on technology, data security is constantly evolving. Caution continues to grow as more and more people are experiencing cyber threats and in turn, are investing in security systems.
What is Cyber Security?
Cyber security refers to the process of protecting any systems from threats and hacks. It involves securing software and data and can help prevent cybercriminals from gaining access to your network or devices.
Investing in a strong security system means that you can protect all categories of your data from theft and damage. These categories include personally identifiable information (PII), intellectual property (IP), protected health information (PHI) and many other forms of sensitive data.
Without cyber security, your system cannot defend itself from viruses and threats, leaving it vulnerable to cybercriminals. If a cybercriminal was to gain access to your devices, they would be able to share sensitive information, steal funds or even alter your data without you knowing.
Furthermore, to be compliant with current regulations, it is now compulsory to implement cyber security solutions into commercial systems.
