What are the 5 types of Cybersecurity?

Robust cyber security measures are becoming increasingly important. Cyber security safeguards sensitive digital information from unauthorized access, damage, or theft. There are various types of cyber security, each with a different focus and purpose.

  1. Network security protects networks from unauthorized access, protecting all data transmitted over the web. Network security measures can include features such as virtual private networks (VPNs), intrusion detection and prevention systems, and firewalls.
  2. Application security: As the name suggests, application security focuses on protecting software applications from cyber threats. This cyber security type includes access controls, encryption, and consistent software updates to address known vulnerabilities.
  3. Cloud security: Cloud computing has become increasingly popular in recent years, and with it comes a need for solid cloud security measures. Cloud security focuses on protecting data stored in cloud-based applications and services, ensuring that it is secure and confidential.
  4. Endpoint security: This type of cyber security focuses on securing endpoints such as laptops, mobile phones, and other devices that have access to a network. Endpoint protection measures may include anti-virus software, firewalls, and regular updates.
  5. Internet of Things (IoT) security: Having more and more devices connected to the internet, ensuring the security of these devices is crucial. IoT security focuses on protecting internet-connected devices from cyber attacks and protecting the data collected by these devices.
