What is Cyber Security ?
Cyber security is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cyber security and physical security.
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks and programs from digital attacks. These attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes.
Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people and attackers are becoming more innovative.

The cybersecurity industry remains a promising area of growth when it comes to career paths in tech and beyond. Remote work security risks, increasing ransomware attacks, and more all contributed to the increased need for cyber professionals. In fact, cybersecurity job postings saw a 65 percent increase during the pandemic.
According to an article by Business Standard, around 82% of Indian companies suffered a ransomware attack in 2020. Also, the cost of recovering from the impact of a ransomware attack in India tripled over the last year, going up from $1.1 million in 2020 to $3.38 million in 2021.
As the Indian government has been pushing to digitize the country, the enterprises too have rushed to digitize their processes and business operations. While this technological advancement has helped organizations to scale their business, it has also increased the risk of exposure to critical data and intellectual property theft. Ranging from cyber attacks on critical infrastructure to the new forms of the misuse of social media, India has been plagued by various cyber threats for years now.
India is in great need of cybersecurity specialists. As per reports from Business Insider India there will be 3.5 million cybersecurity jobs in India by 2025.
