IT Fundamentals of Cyber Security


The Internet in India is growing rapidly. There are two sides to a coin. Internet also has it’s own disadvantages is cyber crime-illegal activity committed on the Internet.
Crime committed using a computer and the internet to steal a person’s identity or illegal imports or malicious programs. Cyber crime is an activity done using computers and the internet.

Data and information systems are available when required.
