Wikipedia give the perfect technical description of network security. In laymen’s terms network security is about protecting your data which is precious and valuable.

Like anything that’s of value to you, your car, your possessions the best way to protect them is to make sure that the thief cannot break in the first place. Prevention is always better then cure.

If the worst should happen and you do get broken into the first thing you want to know is who, how and when. Once you have that information you want to react swiftly to get your property back. The same process applies to your data.

Whether you’re protecting a small business, a distributed enterprise or multiple businesses, your network security can get overwhelmed by operational disarrays, unseen risks and regulatory demands. Historically, efficient firewall management practices have mostly relied on dependable systems and operation control measures. However, frequent errors, misconfigurations and perhaps even violations of those controls remain to be constant challenges for well-run Security Operation Centers (SOCs).
