Cybersecurity is becoming more and more important to our lives every day, and its role in modern healthcare is just one example of that importance.

All of the terms related to cybersecurity can make learning more about it seem intimidating, but Xconomy has developed a helpful solution. On April 29, the site released a glossary of terms related to cybersecurity, defining everything from “advanced persistent threat” to “zero-day attack.”

Did you know that a “worm” is “a type of malware that is standalone (unlike a virus, which is attached to another program) and spreads to other machines by replicating itself”? If not, you will know it after reading through this glossary!
