Cyber security is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security.
Categories Of Cyber Security:
Cyber security has some categories which are:
- Network Security
- Information Security
- Endpoint Security
- Cloud Security
- Identity And Access Management (IAM)
- Internet Of Things (IOT)
- Internet Control System (I
- Network Security:
Network security helps in the protection of the underlying data from unauthorized users who are given unauthorized access. Network security is important to us because it helps us to keep the sensitive data secure from cyber attacks like disturbed networks.
Information security deals with protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and the availability of the sensitive system. Information security is a set of rules that guides the individual when using IT assets.
Endpoint security focuses on securing devices like computers, smartphones, tablets that connect to one or more networks. Antivirus software, endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools that detect problems in mobile device management (MDR)
That safeguards the endpoint from unauthorized users or persons.
Cloud security addresses unique challenges associated with cloud computing environments. Cloud security is from one of the disciplines of cyber security dedicated to securing cloud computing systems. Securing the systems involves the efforts of those cloud providers and the clients that use whether it is an individual or members working in a team in small business, large business or enterprise.
Identity And Access Management (IAM):
IAM is all about managing ,directing and controlling user access to system and resources. Multi-factor authentication helps us to ensure that only authorized users are given access.
Internet Of Things (IOT):
With the increase in the number of IOT devices, IOT security keeps eye on the secured devices that are connected and generate data.
Industrial Control System (ICS):
ICS security deals with securing critical infrastructure and industrial control systems, including SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, from cyber threats that can disrupt essential services.
