  • Security in Networks

    Basic Security Needs: \n\n- A computer is secure if you can depend on it and its software to behave as you expect.\n- No system is completely secure unless it is turned off (susceptible to being stolen).\n- Any time the system is on, it is susceptible to attack, from Trojan horse to Virus.\n- Proper installation and configuration of operating system required to secure the system to acceptable level of risk.\n- Preventing unauthorized access to sensitive data.\n- Protect files, memory and configuration settings from unwanted viewing and modification\n- Web security is essential for protecting web servers, web users, and their surrounding organizations."},{"left":"DEFINITION
