Information and data are vital to the functioning of any organization. However, they are also the most susceptible to cyber attacks for various reasons. Cyber security focuses on protecting the networks, software and the system from accidents and attackers who are now becoming more persistent and innovative in the approach. What is involved is a combination of technology, processes and controls that develop cyber security practices that help build on data confidentiality and ensures the continuous availability of information to conduct business. It is therefore critical for organizations to have a strong security foundation with focused strategies to protect against and mitigate cyber attacks.
