About Cyber Security

Cybersecurity is the protection of Internet-connected systems, including both hardware and software systems. It can be also defined as securing data against unauthorized access by hackers or other computer systems. This field has growing importance due to the increased dependency of mankind on various kinds of computer systems. After the invention of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, smartphones, etc., a higher number of people are storing data on the cloud i.e. the internet. A broader term is given to these things called “Internet of Things”.

There are a few kinds of cyber-security listed below –

  1. Application Security
  2. Information Security
  3. Network Security
  4. Operational Security
  5. End-user education

After the advent of technology and wireless network each day there is a rise of new threats to the data stored on the internet due to which engineers and scientists constantly try to find out methods to stop the threats and hacking. The traditional approach of data security on the web is limited to the bigger known threats which leave behind the other small & undetected threats that tend to destroy data efficiently.

Hence, keeping in mind NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) have recently updated their guidelines in its risk assessment framework that recommend a shift toward continuous monitoring and real-time assessments.

Cybersecurity is a growing field in IT sector and there are a number of good jobs abroad with a good salary.

There are a number of types of cyber-security threats mentioned below

  1. Ransomware – a type of malware which involves an attacker locking the victim’s computer system files.
  2. Malware – is any file that harms a computer user like viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware.
  3. Phishing – it works through fraud emails that resemble emails from ethical sources with usually an intention to gain information like credit card details, login information.

There are various kinds of subjects in cybersecurity, some of them are listed below –

  1. Computer systems
  2. Information management
  3. Cyberlaw and ethics
  4. Investigation techniques
  5. Risk management
  6. Technical report writing

Some of the programs famous for cyber-security in California are
