What is Cyber Security

Cyber Security, (also known as Information Technology Security) is the protection of computer systems and networks from interruption of their service, theft or damage to their software, hardware or data.

Cyber attacks can cost organisations huge sums of money (including fines) but also cause damage to their business and loss of confidence by their customers and partners. There can also be loss of sensitive data relating to their business or customers and that can spread damage very widely.

The EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the DPA (Data Protection Act) 2018 require organisations to implement appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect personal data – or risk substantial fines.

Cyber security covers:-

  • Network security
  • Application security
  • Information security
  • Operational security
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity
  • User training

The technology is always changing and all organisations need to ensure they have the correct technology for the job and that it is kept up to date and protected against all threats.
