What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security is about the protection of Individuals and Organizations from Cyber Attacks. Cyberspace is a fifth generation warfare domain and has recently attracted attention of many developed and developing countries. The reports of government websites being hacked and sensitive data being stolen by foreign groups are not new anymore. Effective cyber-attacks not only can compromise personal user information but can also cripple entire nation’s infrastructure. Cyber Security has been therefore recognized as a global problem, transcending national boundaries. It is a rapidly growing challenge with new sophisticated zero-day attacks costing economies Billions of dollars annually. It particularly affects the developed world, but developing countries are at higher risk due to the lack of expertise and shortage of security professionals with adequate skills and experience to effectively combat this rising threat.
