What do we mean by cyber?

Cyber security is ensuring the protection of systems, networks and programs for digital attacks.  Often referred to as ‘Cyberattacks’, they often attempt to cause system damage, reputational harm, interrupt normal business practice or to extract money from the target.

A career in Cyber security has huge scope and can specialise in one area, be more generalist or be very varied in day-to-day responsibilities.
