There are different ways in which the computer system hardware and software can be damaged and this is through code injections and through network accesses and also through rogue operators.
Cybercrimes have significantly increased due to the high reliance and usage of computers, smartphones, smart televisions and other gadgets hence there is also a need for cybersecurity. Improvement in technology has led to the development of these computer systems that can be able to help you in your daily routines.

People who work in cybersecurity can be known and identified by some name terms that refer to their capabilities in fighting cybercrime. Individuals who can prevent hacking and destruction of information by accessing targets through breaking and penetrating into the systems are known as the white hat hackers. Due to the increased cases of cybercrimes, organizations can set up ways to combat this menace and prevent their systems from being hacked. Organizations need to identify where the threats originate from and also find out what can be targeted. Any data that can be deemed essential and can financially stabilize a person can be hacked. Companies can set up defense systems that can identify and counter attack the threats to the system before the loss of valuable information. A defense system can be able to identify a potential risk quickly and can take corrective action as soon as the threat is detected. An IT expert can be in charge of the computer department in the company and the expert should be capable of identifying any potential threats to the systems and come up with actions to take in case there is an attack.
To store, process, transmit controlled unclassified informational and to provide security protection to some of the non-Federal computer systems, a special coding known as Nist 800-171 is required to be entered in the computer system. Various departments of defense can require the Nist 800-171 compliance. Comply Up can be able to help individuals by providing the step by step assessment process to get the Nist 800-171 compliance.
