Why Cyber Security Is Important

by EC-Council


People and businesses rely on computers every day to keep operations running smoothly. When a malicious attack undermines a company's cybersecurity, both money and data are at risk. Cybersecurity encompasses all the methods used to protect computers, servers, and internet-connected devices from malicious behavior.

Strong cybersecurity doesn't just rely on understanding malicious threats; it also relies on knowing how to prevent or eliminate them.

The International Council of E-Commerce Consultants, also known as the EC-Council, is on a mission to protect the internet-connected economy from cyber attacks. In this course, the EC-Council shares its standard best practices for protecting both businesses and their users from common vulnerabilities found in both physical and digital spaces.
