About this course
What is Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks and programmes from digital attacks. These are usually aimed at accessing, processing or destroying sensitive information, as well as extorting money from users or disrupting normal business processes. However, these are not the only sources of threats to information systems: failures, accidental events and irresponsible or improper use of resources and tools can compromise or destroy information managed by ICT systems.
Cybersecurity applies to various contexts, from business to mobile computing, and can be divided into several categories, including network, application and information security, operational security, disaster recovery and business continuity, as well as training and end-user awareness.
Why is it essential?
Globally, cyber threats continue to evolve rapidly and the number of data breaches increases every year. A report by Risk Based Security shows that, in 2019 alone, as many as 7.9 billion records were exposed to data breaches, more than double (112%) the number of records exposed in the same period in 2018.
As the scale of cyber threats continues to increase, International Data Corporation predicts that by 2022, worldwide spending on cybersecurity solutions will reach as much as USD 133.7 billion. Governments around the world have responded to this increase in cyber threats by publishing guidance to help companies implement effective cybersecurity procedures.
