Cybersecurity refers to the state or process of protecting and recovering computer networks, systems, devices, and programs from cyber attack. Cyber attacks pose an evolving danger to businesses’ sensitive data. In recent years, these attacks have become increasingly complex due to attackers’ use of social engineering and artificial intelligence (AI) to evade traditional data security measures.
Cyberattacks usually involve:
- theft or unauthorized access of computers, tablets, and other devices
- remote attack on IT systems and websites
- attacks on data stored in third-party systems such as cloud devices and more
