What Is Cybersecurity?
Our world is more connected than ever, which can be both a blessing and a curse. With much of our lives existing in the digital realm, many of us expose ourselves to cyberattacks on a regular basis.
Fortunately, the field of cybersecurity has developed to enhance network security and information security for both individuals and organizations. Cybersecurity is a growing field of computer science, meaning job security and growth potential for years to come.
What Are Cyberattacks?
There are several different types of cyber threats and cyberattacks; malware, phishing, and password attacks are all common today.
Malware stands for malicious software, designed by cyberattackers to bypass firewalls and cause damage to a computer, server, or network. Often called a virus, malware can compromise your security because it’s designed to steal, encrypt, or delete your data and make money off you without your knowledge.
Another common cybersecurity threat is phishing, which entails a fraudulent attempt to gain personal information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details. Phishing often comes in the form of email, and can be difficult to identify.
