Cybersecurity refers to the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.
Cybersecurity is a collection of tools, policies, security concepts, security safeguards, guidelines, risk management approaches, actions, training, best practices, assurance and technologies that can be used to protect the cyber environment and organization and user’s assets. Organization and user’s assets include connected computing devices, related personnel, organizational infrastructure, applications, services, telecommunications systems and networks. It also includes transmitted and/or stored information in the cyber environment.
Cybersecurity aims to ensure the attainment and maintenance of the security properties of the organization and user’s assets against relevant security risks in the cyber environment.

In today’s world, it is of utmost importance that organizations be prepared to protect themselves from threats in cyberspace.
Cybersecurity is a collection of tools, policies, security concepts, security safeguards, guidelines, risk management approaches, actions, training, best practices, assurance and technologies that can be used to protect the cyber environment and organization and user’s assets.
In the earlier session, we had focused on introducing important fundamental concepts related to cybersecurity. Introduction to cryptography, types of firewalls, different types of malware attacks and security managements were key topics discussed along with use of basic security administrator tools.
In this module, we will focus on advanced skills, tools and techniques needed to learn to protect the networks from different types of attacks, secure organizational assets, identify vulnerabilities, ensure the privacy of customers, and build secure systems and infrastructures.
