Cyber Security and Networking

Digital Age

Everyone knows that security is essential in the Digital Age. Information Security, Network Security and Cyber Security are terms which we come across everywhere these days. There is definitely some confusion around these terms, in part because there’s a significant amount of overlap between them.

Information security

Information security dates back to when humans began keeping secrets; in the early days, physical files and documents were kept under literal lock and key. Once the business world began using computers, network security became essential to protect the electronic network infrastructure of these vital systems. The advent of the internet changed everything, adding once-unimagined technological capabilities but also creating new vulnerabilities; and giving rise to a critical new industry of cybersecurity.

Cyber Security

Cybersecurity is a subset of information security that deals with protecting an organisation’s internet-connected systems from potential cyberattacks; and network security is a subset of cybersecurity that is focused on protecting an organisation’s IT infrastructure from online threats. Though the terms are often used in conjunction with one another, cybersecurity is considered to be the broader discipline, with network security defined as one aspect of information and/or cybersecurity.

cyber Attacks

We at proficient understand the importance of preventing cyberattacks and offer solutions to the protection of data and systems in networks that are connected to the internet. We also have solutions to the process of taking software preventative measures to protect the underlying networking infrastructure from unauthorised access, misuse, malfunction, modification, destruction, or improper disclosure, thereby creating a secure platform for computers, users and programs to perform their permitted critical functions within a secure environment.
