Cyber security is comprised of an evolving set of tools, risk management approaches, technologies, training and best practices that protect networks, devices and programs from attacks or unauthorized access. Cyberattacks can cause serious problems like data breaches, network outages and loss of customer trust.
As the world becomes increasingly interconnected and technology driven, cybersecurity is a major concern for businesses of all sizes. A strong cybersecurity system can help businesses build trust with customers and retain them.
In addition, a good cybersecurity infrastructure can help businesses remain compliant with regulations and avoid expensive fines. Regularly conducting a cybersecurity risk assessment can help identify any weaknesses or vulnerabilities that can be exploited by attackers and be remediated before a cyberattack occurs.
The use of technology is an important part of cybersecurity, including systems like computers, smart devices, routers, networks and the cloud. Technology that helps prevent or combat cybersecurity attacks includes DNS filtering, malware protection and antivirus software as well as firewalls and email security solutions.
Another critical component of cybersecurity is the ability to monitor and supervise remote work environments. Many employees are required to work from home or other locations outside of the office, and these devices can present a higher risk to the company’s network and data if they are not under constant IT supervision. Solutions such as mobile device management (MDM) software can help enterprises supervise these devices and limit the ways that attackers can reach enterprise data. MDR
