Definitions: What does “Cyber Security” mean for a Home Network?

Cyber Security is defined as the set of processes, practices and technologies to protect computer assets from intentional cyber attacks by malicious entities like hackers, cyber criminals and pranksters. Typical attacks exploit vulnerabilities in computer software, use fake websites to trick individuals into giving away their credentials, and the use of sophisticated malware to cause harm to personal data, and to steal information and credentials.
For home networks and computers, cyber security at minimum requires the use of updated versions of software, firewalls, anti malware suites and strong passwords on WIFI and other network devices.
