What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the practice of implementing technology, processes, and resources to protect interconnected systems from digital attacks.
It is the process of protecting an organization’s applications, data, programs, networks, and systems from cyberattacks and unwanted data access. Cyber attackers utilize new strategies and social engineering to extort money from businesses and users, disrupt corporate processes, and steal or destroy critical information. Cybersecurity threats are evolving and getting advanced in approach with increasing complexities of security challenges. Cybersecurity is a collection of different categories, including network security, application security, operational security, cloud security, information security, and disaster recovery.
What are the business benefits of Cloud-native security?
Protection from cyber attacks As organizations transform digitally, bad actors evolve their attacks to exploit system vulnerabilities. Implementing cybersecurity practices allows organizations to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover from cyber threats.
Business continuity Cyber-attacks and data breaches slow down the speed of business, sometimes even leading to downtime. Deploying cybersecurity practices allows organizations to ensure the smooth functioning of business with minimal or no downtime in cyber-attacks.
Improved business productivity and efficiency Cybersecurity technology also enables businesses to improve process efficiencies and user experience while protecting them from digital attacks.
