The terms security and cybersecurity are often used interchangeably referring to the profession narrowly defined as a team of professionals who leverage technologies and processes to defend an organization’s systems and networks from attack. However, this narrow use of security sells the field short – there are in fact a number of key functions under the security umbrella, one of which is cybersecurity, all of which are essential to the success of the organization. Some such functions are: physical security, fraud prevention, privacy, business continuity, disaster recovery, and risk management, although there are still more. And though the security field is defined by the technical “hacker” persona, people with backgrounds, skills, and interests of a wide variety have all found success under the umbrella of work in the security field.
