Cybersecurity or IT security, is security applied to computers, computer networks, and the data stored and transmitted over these networks. This field is growing in importance because businesses and individuals are relying more and more on computer systems.
Today, computer systems include traditional personal computers, smart devices, such as smartphones, televisions and tiny devices, smart watches, television sets as a part of the Internet of Things. Just like computers have started including wider range of devices, the network is now a collective term used to include the Internet, private data networks, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other wireless networks.
Cyber security professionals create processes and mechanisms to protect digital equipment, information and services from unintended or unauthorized access, change, or destruction. They also implement measures to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data in use, transit, or at rest.
