Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting data, information, programs, systems, devices, and networks from unauthorized or malicious access and use by external sources on the internet.
Cybersecurity programs and policies should consider the interplay of people, processes, and technology to support the knowledge transfer (KT) of established practices regarding the shared responsibility of protecting data and information. The right cybersecurity approach will be able to implement layers of protection that account for various devices, programs, networks, and data that an organization aims to protect.
As businesses use more devices and complicated networks to offer their products and services, the challenge and importance of effective cybersecurity strategies and procedures continue to rise sharply.
