WHAT IS CYBER SECURITY?
‘Cyber threats’ are various malicious activities aimed at compromising computer systems or networks. Phishing, malware, ransomware, and hacking are all common cyber threats.
Cyber Security is the term used for the various countermeasures that together safeguard digital technologies from cyber threats thereby preventing unauthorised access, damage, financial and data loss.
Cyber security can be improved by non-technical staff with basic actions such as strong passwords, two-factor authentication and remaining vigilant against phishing attacks.
More technical cyber security measures include data encryption and firewalls.
