It is essential to be aware of the different types of cyber security packages that are available at one’s disposal in order to enable sound judgment when it comes to choosing one. Listed below are some of the types of cyber security packages that one can consider:

Critical Infrastructure Security – This type is found in applications that contain cyber-physical systems like water purification systems or electricity grids.

Application Security – This cyber security type (found in antivirus or firewall) implements both software and hardware to fight the threats that appear during the development stage of an application.

Network Security – It secures the infrastructure behind the design like a two-factor authentication process to protect internal networks from intruders.

Data Loss Prevention – It is concerned with the processes and policies for the prevention of data loss and includes data storage policies and network permissions.

Information Security – Also known as InfoSec, this type of cybersecurity type protects both online and offline data from unauthorized access, disclosure, deletion, or any other form of malicious intent.

Cloud Security – This software-based tool prevents data corruption and addresses risks against on-premise threats.

End-user Education – End-user education involves training and educating the end-users and the general masses on the best practices to use when dealing with the internet and the online world."
