Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting your computer hardware, software, and data from disruption, theft, or damage. It consists of layers of protective software and hardware that guard potential weak spots in computers, networks, and programs. It also includes keeping people informed of potential cyber threats and the right actions to take in case of an attack.

It’s like installing locks on the doors and windows of your house so thieves can’t get into it. In computing, that translates to installing security software that locks cyber thieves out of your computer.
