Cybersecurity

 


What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. A successful cybersecurity approach has multiple layers of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, or data that one intends to keep safe. 

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting internet-connected systems such as hardware, software and data from cyberthreats.


What are the elements of cybersecurity

Maintaining cybersecurity in a constantly evolving threat landscape is a challenge for all organizations.

  • Application security.
  • Information or data security.
  • Network security.
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity planning.
  • Operational security.
  • Cloud security.
  • Critical infrastructure security.
  • Physical security.
  • End-user education.

Why is cybersecurity important?

everyone benefits from advanced cyber defense programs. At an individual level, a cybersecurity attack can result in everything from identity theft, to extortion attempts, to the loss of important data like family photos. Everyone relies on critical infrastructure like power plants, hospitals, and financial service companies.

Types of cybersecurity

  • Critical infrastructure security
  • Network security
  • Endpoint security
  • Application security
  • Cloud security
  • Information security
  • Mobile security

Types of cybersecurity threats

  • Phishing
  • Social engineering
  • Ransomware
  • Malware
  • DDoS attacks

  • Threat detection, prevention and response
  • Disaster recovery

Benefits of cybersecurity?

  • Business protection against cyberattacks and data breaches.
  • Protection of data and networks.
  • Prevention of unauthorized user access.
  • Improved recovery time after a breach.
  • Protection for end users and endpoint devices.
  • Regulatory compliance.
  • Business continuity.

RPA

RPA? How robotic process automation streamlines business processes Two kinds of RPA: Attended and unattended Attended automation Attended automation allows you to focus on more high-value work across your organisation. It does this by automating repetitive, manual, front-office activities and mimics actions you perform on your desktop or browser, like mouse clicks, by recording and playing back these actions in real time. Unattended automation By contrast, as its name suggests, unattended automation doesn’t require someone to be at their computer. Instead, unattended bots do the work by themselves recording and playing back actions. Because they can use triggers and schedule automated events, they’re ideal for accelerating the automation of high-volume tasks across your organisation. Faster ROI and improved compliance Because they don’t require custom code from the development team, bots are a very low-cost solution. They’re also easy to implement quickly. As a result, ROI from impleme

5G Technology

5G Technology What is 5G? 5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology. It is designed to increase speed, reduce latency, and improve flexibility of wireless services. It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices. The 5G network will also simplify mobility, with seamless open roaming capabilities between cellular and Wi-Fi access. Mobile users can stay connected as they move between outdoor wireless connections and wireless networks inside buildings without user intervention or the need for users to reauthenticate. 5G technology will introduce advances throughout network architecture. 5G New Radio, the global standard for a more capable 5G wireless air interface, will cover spectrums not used in 4G. New antennas will incorporate technology known as massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output), which enables mu

Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT)? IoT has become one of the most important technologies of the 21st century. Now that we can connect everyday objects—kitchen appliances, cars, thermostats, baby monitors—to the internet via embedded devices, seamless communication is possible between people, processes, and things. By means of low-cost computing, the cloud, big data, analytics, and mobile technologies, physical things can share and collect data with minimal human intervention. Access to low-cost, low-power sensor technology Connectivity Cloud computing platforms Machine learning and analytics Conversational artificial intelligence (AI) With IoT, data is transferable over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interactions. How does IoT work? An IoT ecosystem consists of web-enabled smart devices that use embedded systems -- such as processors, sensors and communication hardware -- to collect, send and act on data they acquire from their environments.
