What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the field of action that intends to ensure the security and protection of information and of the corresponding technological infrastructures that are usually associated with Internet Security. This technology can be of corporate nature, such as servers, databases, routers, firewalls, etc., as well as information of individual nature, such as computers, mobile devices, or even IoT (Internet of Things) devices.
Data protection is becoming a considerably important area, not only for companies but also from a personal point of view, as the use of information technologies is growing exponentially, thus intensifying the need and risks related with the security of information.
Cybersecurity is a comprehensive area of activity. It is not limited to information technologies but its application also encompasses processes and people (users), as they are equally potential vectors of attack and targets for the exploitation of potential vulnerabilities with techniques such as Social Engineering.
Cybersecurity consists on working consistently to assess risk and to make management decisions and a structured mitigation of risks in order to minimize them to an acceptable level, given the benefits of such actions.
