Cybersecurity

Cyber security consists of technologies, processes and controls designed to protect systems, networks, programs, devices and data from cyber-attacks.

Implementing effective cyber security reduces the risk of cyber-attacks and protects against the unauthorised exploitation of systems, networks and technologies.

Cyber security essentially focuses on protecting computer systems from unauthorised access or being otherwise damaged or made inaccessible.

Under the GDPR and DPA 2018, organisations must implement appropriate security measures to protect personal data – or risk substantial fines.
