What is the Difference between Network, Cyber and Info Sec?

Network security, cybersecurity, and information security are all related concepts, but they have slightly different meanings and scopes.

Network security refers to the protection of computer networks from unauthorized access or attacks. It involves the use of various hardware and software technologies to secure networks and prevent intruders from gaining access to sensitive information. Network security focuses on protecting the network infrastructure, such as routers, switches, firewalls, and other network devices, from attacks and intrusions.

Cybersecurity, on the other hand, is a broader term that encompasses network security as well as other aspects of security related to information technology. Cybersecurity involves the protection of computer systems, networks, and digital data from unauthorized access, theft, and damage. It includes a wide range of technologies, policies, and practices that are designed to secure digital assets and prevent cyber attacks.

Information security refers to the protection of all forms of information, including both digital and non-digital data, from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, modification, or destruction. Information security covers a wide range of topics, including confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, and compliance. It involves implementing appropriate controls and measures to safeguard information from various threats, such as cyber attacks, human error, and natural disasters.
