     Not a few years ago, the world began to go through a dramatic transformation where new technology was invented and became the new standard of life. However, as new technology became the new standard in human lives, a problem arose, hacking. Hackers can now hack into devices and retrieve sensitive information and can do malicious actions to your device. Cyber Security, an important institute, was created to counter hacking.

     In the recent years, Cyber Security has risen to become one of the most important technological  factors we need. Each year, thousands of government and business data is breached and billions of dollars are wasted in order to pay ransoms or retrieve files. Cyber Security specialists are hired in order to retrieve data so money loss is minimized. Specialists also attempt to remove malware in order to prevent further data loss.

     Data breaches are incredibly expensive and very frustrating to deal with. The average cost for data breaches in the United States totals almost eight billion dollars. In order to counter hackers, cyber security workers interpret computers in order to make them more protected. They implement certain types settings that can be turned on for better security. One example of a setting that should be turned on is two factor authentication, which makes accounts harder to get hacked in by requiring a second password or a code. A good cyber security system could protect businesses against further attacks.

     As technology becomes more widespread, malware and virus attacks become increasingly common. Cyber Security is a crucial system that is needed to protect other systems and viruses against malware.
