The practices that are taken in the prevention of the network connected systems from hacking and fraud of the data that may be present in the system from fraudsters and hackers is what that is referred to as the cyber security. Almost all entities are conducted through the use of networks which includes the use of networked computers. Besides the entities, every other thing is nowadays computerized. There is therefore a need to increase the strategies and measures that ensure that data in the networked computers is protected. Failure to protect the data in a networked computer may cause both an individual and a business entity a lot of harm and threats.
The data present in the networked computers that have not been subjected to cyber security measures can in the context of banking be used in the illegal transaction of funds. The data may also be hacked in order for the hackers to obtain identification of other individuals which can make them use the identity of others in the commission of crimes. The foregoing gives the reason at which the business corporate and the individuals should subject the systems to cyber security policies. By understanding the reasons and the advantages of cyber security, then we can be able to understand why systems should be subjected to cyber security policies.
There is identification of the threats as well as the risks by the users when cyber security measures are taken. A component of cyber security measures known as the risk assessment makes this possible. The risks that may be available and others that may be potential are identified through the use of the risk assessment strategy. This helps the device users to come up with policies and strategies that can help curb these risks and vulnerabilities before they cause harm to the whole system.
The advantage of the cyber security is that the most important documents are ensured of safety and therefore cannot be lost. Some Data in a computer and other networked systems are so important in that if they get lost they can cause a great harm to the users of the system be it in the individual level or the corporation level. Therefore, proper protection of these documents should be done to the maximum. The achievement of such facts can only be done when proper ways and strategies to curb the cyber crime are established. Subjecting the networked systems into the policies and strategies put in cyber security can help to ensure that the systems are safe to use.
The cyber crime can be used in educating the users and employees of these systems. These users may include the employees of a certain corporation s well as other individuals who may be using the systems. The education received include understanding when the system is at risk of being hacked and also the preventive measures that should be undertaken.
