We have all heard stories of companies being harassed by viruses and malware. When this happens, huge amounts of money, confidential information, and infrastructure can be stolen in just seconds. These attacks often involve little in the way of investment or risk on the part of attackers, which come from anyone from individuals to hostile state-sponsored agencies.

The field of cybersecurity revolves around ensuring the security and integrity of the many interconnected electronic devices that make up our current modern life, and are used in big companies and at an individual level. Those that are most critical include:
