What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. The attacks are usually targeted at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money or interrupting normal business processes.

Implementing effective cybersecurity measures can be challenging because there are more devices than people with attackers becoming more innovative each year.
