Security and Cybersecurity
Security is a balancing act between the defender and the attacker. When you talk about security, you think about a guard carrying a big old shotgun and guarding the assigned territory. While that still exists, it is essential to realize that the attackers have changed their course. Instead of carrying a weapon while covering their face with masks, they opted for a much reliable defense, the computer. Yes, we now have more hackers than attackers.
Hackers are ingenious criminals who play smartly by hacking websites and steal crucial data from a company; we call these cybercrimes. Tough times call for stringent measures, thus came in cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is to protect all sensitive data ranging from health information to government and industry information systems. Keeping the hackers away is like a job of tech police. Sounds exciting?
