What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is a field that encompasses the protection of data, networks, and software from unauthorized access, attack, or damage. Every company that collects, processes, and stores data has to protect its sensitive information (such as financial data, personal information, intellectual property etc). Government bodies, the military, large corporations, and medical institutions are now the sectors most dependent on cyber security, but as the number of sophisticated cyber attacks grows, more sectors will follow.
