Cyber Security
A cybersecurity is defined as a protection of internet system involving
hardware's, software, and other computer networks. The use of cyber security is
growing very fast due to increasing computer system and devices and it is observed that
most of users use wireless devices for communication purpose that are very less secure
(Abawajy, 2014).Security of consumer’s data is one of the major challenges in this
modern generation because hackers use complex malicious software to block the user’s
mobile networks. The main aim of this research essay is to understand the concept of
cyber security and analysis limitation of the cyber security system. There are main three
aspects of cyber security such as people, process, and technology. Processes are the
main key factors to implement an effective cyber security and most of the organizations
used this type of strategy to reduce cyber threats and attacks. This essay is explaining
the concept of cyber security, key factors that influence security threats and risks, and
limitations of cyber security.
Cyber security plays a significant role in the field of computer networks because
most organizations collects and process a large amount of data on computers and other
peripheral devices. an organization transmit data and relevant information from one
location to another by using wireless networks and hackers use malware software to
hack all personal information of any user. In the year 2016 around 2 million people
have faced the problem of cyber-attack in which attackers produce a large number of
traffic signals and transferred to the consumer personal accounts (Abomhara, & Køien,
2015).
There are various elements of cyber security, for example, network security,
application security, endpoint security, data security, cloud security, and mobile
security. The major challenge faced by the cyber security addresses the security related
threats and vulnerabilities. Most organizations and communities focus on their personal
details and they adopted advanced computer networks and devices to protect data from
attackers. According to recent survey it is identified that lack of security is very common
problem because consumers use unauthentic servers and websites which are developed
by the hackers (Baig, et al., 2017)Cybersecurity is one of the most important methods
to protect human private data and it has the ability to detect the cyber threats and

issues. Most of the information was hacked during the sharing process because hackers
detect the location of the user by using botnet and flooding process.
For which information and communication technology developed advanced
protection systems such as one-time password, cryptography, and encryption
techniques. There are many authors researched on this topic and they identified that
people and employees use unauthentic websites and they use simple passwords which
can be easily detected by attackers. There are main three security threats occur in the
computer networks such as denial of service attack, malicious attack and ransomware.
Bertino, (2016)described a onetime password technique to protect the human personal
details which are a part of cyber security. In which a pin number are transferred to the
users registered mobile numbers which are used only one time and it is observed that
this technique can reduce the issue of hacking or data breaching.
Every transaction a new pin number produced by computer algorithm and users
receive new password every time that improve the security of data. Malware attack is
very common cyber threats which occur due to lack of security and hackers attacks on
the user’s computer networks. In which hacker generate a complex algorithm and after
that, they identify the IP address of the user peripheral device. Generally, they block the
computer devices and encrypt the user’s personal information after that they demand
money to restore back their details. In the year 2013, the European Union developed a
cyber security strategy that is an open safe and secure cyberspace. This strategy
reduces the cybercrimes and other security-related issues and it is studied that
consumers use third-party application which are developed by malicious software that
records the private information of consumers (Boulos, Sargolzaei, Ziaei, & Sargolzaei,
2016).
The cyber security or information security is a kind of process that protects
user’s peripheral devices such as mobile phones, computer system and networks. Today
many organization use information security system that protects employees personal
details and it also identifies the threats and issues faced by the cyber security. There are
main two technologies used in cyber security such as authentication, and cryptography.
The network security is used to protect the computer networks from malware attacks
