They can come in many different forms. A common one is malware, or malicious software and in-turn they can come in differing variations to infect your devices, including:
These threats alone demonstrate how important it is to have reliable security practices in-place, in-line with your cybersecurity strategy.

Types of IT Security
- Endpoint Security
- Cloud Security
- Internet Security
- Network Security
Endpoint security provides protection at the device level. Devices that may be secured by endpoint security include mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. Endpoint security will prevent your devices from accessing malicious networks that may be a threat to your organization. Advanced malware protection and device management software are examples of endpoint security.
Applications, data, and identities are moving to the cloud, meaning users are connecting directly to the Internet and are not protected by the traditional security stack. Cloud security can help secure the usage of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and the public cloud. A cloud-access security broker (CASB), secure Internet gateway (SIG), and cloud-based unified threat management (UTM) can be used for cloud security.
Internet security involves the protection of information that is sent and received in browsers, as well as network security involving web-based applications. These protections are designed to monitor incoming internet traffic for malware as well as unwanted traffic. This protection may come in the form of firewalls, antimalware, and antispyware.
Network security is used to prevent unauthorized or malicious users from getting inside your network. This ensures that usability, reliability, and integrity are uncompromised. This type of security is necessary to prevent a hacker from accessing data inside the network. It also prevents them from negatively affecting your users’ ability to access or use the network.
Network security has become increasingly challenging as businesses increase the number of endpoints and migrate services to public cloud.
