It is failry obvious that Information Security holds a very important stance in today's digital Era. The filed is rather new. Although cyber attacks have been around since history, it is only recently that a systematic study of Information Security has been undertaken. and in a very short span of time, this field has virtually dominated every other domain of computers in one way or the other. Every Organisation, every individual, faces unknown threats from unknown parties. Thus the study of Information Security is important, regardless of what role an individual has in the IT sector. It is always better to be safe and on guard than to regret later.
