Cyber security (also known as "information technology security") refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, devices, programs, and data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access.
Cyber security is important because government, military, corporate, financial, and medical organizations collect, process, and store unprecedented amounts of data electronically. A significant portion of that data can be sensitive information, whether that be intellectual property, financial data, personal information, or other types of data for which unauthorized access or exposure could have negative if not dire consequences. Organizations transmit sensitive data across networks and to other devices in the course of doing every day businesses Cyber security describes the discipline dedicated to protecting this information and the systems used to process and/or store it. As the volume and sophistication of cyber attacks grow, companies and organizations, especially those that are tasked with safeguarding information relating to national security, health, or financial records, need to take steps to protect their sensitive business and personnel information. For an effective cyber security, an organization needs to coordinate its efforts throughout its entire information system from end user to infrastructure to disaster recovery planning, and everything in between.
