Cyber security comprises of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect computers, programs, networks and data from hacking, damage or unauthorized access. Cyber security is also sometimes conflated inappropriately in public discussion with other concepts such as privacy, information sharing, intelligence gathering, and surveillance. Cyber security comes into picture as well as we encounter cyber crimes. To avoid giving cybercriminals the initiative, it is important for those involved in the fight against cybercrime to try to anticipate qualitative and quantitative changes in its underlying elements so that they can formulate their methods appropriately. The importance of being acquainted with the effects of cyber crime keeping in mind the recent activities that have taken place and offering solutions to protect an individual and/or an organization from them is laid down in this paper. Types of cyber security and cyber attacks are listed in this paper. It also throws light on the state of cyber crimes and cyber security in India. A gist of Indian cyber laws is presented in this paper as well.
