What are the types of Cyber Security?

Your cyber security program protects you against threats and potential data breaches that can be fatal for businesses. Considering everything is related to the internet today, it makes sense to create a plan that’s as comprehensive and thorough as possible. Then, the number of threats and the odds of being a victim of a hack are lower.

To craft an extensive strategy, you must understand the available tools. After all, the best option is usually to mix and match the most suitable features to develop an impenetrable policy. With that in mind, you’ll find five of the most effective cybersecurity types below.

You can use the following to eliminate threats at their roots and prevent small issues from escalating out of control.

Network Security

Your network is on the list of your business’s essential assets. Without a working server, it’s hard to connect the company and share information, while working remotely is almost impossible. When this happens, productivity and output levels inevitably drop, causing the business to fall behind and increase wastage.

Unfortunately, networks are tough to secure since there are plenty of back doors that you may not see as significant. Here is a small selection:

  • Email accounts – employee and management
  • WiFi router
  • The cloud

The key is to guard against external threats by strengthening these weak spots so that hackers have fewer places to gain entry to your network. You can do this by:

  • Adding extra logins
  • Changing passwords
  • Implementing application security, such as antivirus programs, firewalls, and data encryption
