Cybersecurity is the mechanism to protect information technology equipment and data from unauthorized access. The most difficult task in today's IT sector is to keep information and data safe from prying eyes. When thinking about cyber security in today's world, the first thing that comes to mind is cybercrime, hacking, and data breaches, which are on the rise day by day. To combat this cybercriminal, all governments around the world are enacting cyber laws [1]. Despite the numerous steps taken to prevent such practices, cybercrime is on the rise. This paper primarily concentrates on the cybersecurity issues that will impact online learning on various platforms. Also, this paper goes over some techniques, policies, and practices that institutions and individuals can use to prevent or protect themselves from cybercriminals.
