What is Cyber Security?

Cyber Security focuses on protecting computers, networks, programs and data from unintended or unauthorized access, change or destruction. Many businesses collect, process, and store a great deal of confidential information on computers and transmit that data across networks to other computers. With the increase risk of possible cyber attacks there is more need for cyber security to prevent an attack.   

What do Cyber Security Professionals do?

Cyber security needs to be taken seriously by everyone. Cyber security is a growth industry, with rapidly increasing demand for qualified professionals in government and industry. Today, almost everything we do depends on a digitized system of one kind or another. In cyber warfare, it is much harder to identify the attacker, and therefore to know how to retaliate.In a modern digitized world it is possible to paralyze a country without attacking its defense forces. Cyber security professionals try to prevent cyber attacks with firewall, etc.u

Am I suited for this Profession or not?

I am not suited for this profession. Most of the traits that are said to be needed to go into this profession are needed in a person, but not all the traits are needed. I lack almost every trait needed to go into the profession, yet someone that doesn't have all the traits could possible still get into the profession. The traits mostly just make a person more of an advantage against a person that doesn't have the traits. Even then I still don't think cyber security would suit me because of my traits, and interests.
