What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting networks and systems connected to the internet by predicting, detecting, and intercepting cyberattacks through technical tools such as firewalls and threat detection services.

Cyberattacks usually get access to a company’s systems in order to steal information, as well as damage or destroy data, sensitive information, and misconfigure security settings, impacting the operation, finances, and reputation of companies.

Cybersecurity is based on three fundamental goals: confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
