Cybersecurity is an element of information technology (IT). IT refers to the use of technology to process, store, retrieve, and transmit information. Cybersecurity, on the other hand, is the practice of protecting computer systems, networks, and sensitive information from unauthorized access, theft, damage, or disruption. Cybersecurity is an important component of IT because it ensures that information and computer systems are secure and protected from cyber threats and attacks. Without proper cybersecurity measures in place, IT systems and the information they store could be vulnerable to a range of cyber threats, including viruses, malware, hacking, phishing, and other forms of cybercrime.
