The Importance of Network Security
Network security professionals are the guardians of privacy and finance when it comes to the highly technical world of computer science, internet networks, and e-commerce security. Network security professionals secure a company against hackers and criminals by protecting private documents behind firewalls and encryption. Network security analysts protect the company’s customers and clients by securing information exchanged online.
Analysts must also be able to identify and thwart threats not just to a company, but to a region, state, or country. The biggest challenge of this cybersecurity work is to regulate, secure, and oversee information without interfering with the flow to and from honest actors.
