Abstract
A cyber security attacks are a major concern in critical systems of organizations and other businesses. With the fast growth of the technology, different challenges may influence data security. Cyber-attacks cause huge damages in critical systems, such as data breaches for sensitive data, denial of service, cost of attacks and further more damages. Therefore, organizations and big companies work hard in order to keep their critical systems secured from any potential attacks. This paper will discuss some common security issues and protections that help keep critical systems secured. In addition, two examples of attacks were given to show how important is to pay attention for cyber-attacks. Furthermore, this paper gives the suitable suggested solutions for these security issues in order to face any potential threats.
