Cyber Security 101

Threats, Remedies and Tools

Course Description

Cybersecurity refers to the practice of protecting computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from digital attacks, theft, and damage. It is a critical issue for organizations and individuals alike, as the increasing reliance on technology and the internet has made it easier for cybercriminals to access sensitive information and disrupt operations.

There are many different types of cybersecurity threats, including viruses, malware, ransomware, phishing attacks, and denial of service (DoS) attacks. These threats can come from a variety of sources, such as hackers, nation-state actors, and even disgruntled employees.

One way to protect against cyber threats is to implement strong security measures, such as firewalls, antivirus software, and intrusion detection systems. It is also important to educate employees on best practices for cybersecurity, such as creating strong passwords and being cautious when opening emails or clicking on links.

In addition to technical measures, organizations should also have policies and procedures in place to respond to cyber incidents. This may include having a incident response team, regularly backing up data, and testing disaster recovery plans.

Another aspect of cybersecurity is data privacy. Personal information, such as names, addresses, and financial data, should be kept secure to protect against identity theft and other forms of fraud. Organizations that handle sensitive data, such as healthcare providers and financial institutions, are required by law to follow certain data privacy regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in the healthcare industry and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union.
