Cyber security is about how to secure our data or how to present our personal data(sometimes called privacy) like a website authentication, authorization.

But network security is all about how to secure our internet or intranet, like if we take an example of banks then how we secure link between ATM and data center, either we use VPNs gateways firewalls and even antivirus installed on a server is responsible for the network security.
