(also file extension)
A file format is a standard way of encoding and organizing data in a file so that software applications can store, read, and manipulate it. File formats define the data structure, specifications, and metadata. They ensure programs can correctly process and display information. File formats also enable systems and applications to exchange data, making them essential for interoperability. Moreover, they are critical for security due to their inherent vulnerabilities, malware delivery, and data protection capabilities.
