What is Cyber Security?

The term Cyber Security has transcended into the workforce with many labor categories and requirements to become employed. There are terms such as Computer Security, Data Security, Information Security, Network Security, and Information Assurance that relates to Cyber Security.  The major difference is based upon organizational data and how its used. For instance, Data Security defines databases and the procedures to protect storage, transfer, and access of critical data, while Network Security addresses  the source and destination of traffic between networks and infrastructure devices such as firewalls, router, switches,  and Intrusion Detection devices. So, what is the true definition of Cyber Security? Some say it's just  "Security Lost in Space" while others think of just hacking and the prevention of data leaks. Whats yours?
