    What is IT Security?

    Information Technology (IT) security are the systems, tools, and processes to address security concerns of data confidentiality, privacy, and integrity, as well as protecting IT assets from any potential threat. IT security is a wide field of security practices, including cybersecurity and  Information Security (InfoSec). IT security might include hardware security, and uptime and system configuration considerations. Network security is a huge part of IT security, so firewalls and system-wide security protocols are included in this category.

    What makes up strong IT security?

    A strong IT security posture includes the right experts, processes, and tools, in addition to automated solutions and support. A real-time IT asset inventory, an incident response plan, and a plan for endpoint protection should be included in this overall strategy. On-premises security, such as who has access to data centers, might also be included in the IT security playbook. Ensuring that cloud data is secure from cyber attacks, that apps and Internet of Things devices are secure, and that the network is not vulnerable to cyber threats is critical.
