Cyber security refers to the safeguarding of devices connected to the internet that protect against numerous risks in cyberspace. It involves protecting software, data, and hardware, as well as assisting in the prevention of fraudsters gaining access to devices or networks. Companies need cyber security to protect their data, cash, and intellectual property. Individuals require it for comparable reasons, despite the fact that intellectual property is less of a problem and the risk of losing critical information, such as family photographs, is greater. When it comes to public services or governmental organizations, cyber security assures that the public can continue to rely on them.
