Security Planning

Computer security is the process of preventing and detecting unauthorized use of your computer. Prevention measures help you to stop unauthorized users (also known as "intruders") from accessing any part of your computer system. Security risks arise from the possibility of intentional misuse of your computer by intruders via the Internet.

 2AdvanceIT is concerned with three main areas;

Confidentiality - information should be available only to those who rightfully have access to it.
Integrity - information should be modified only by those who are authorized to do so.
Availability - information should be accessible to those who need it when they need it.

 

These concepts apply to home Internet users just as much as they would to any corporate or government network. In the same way, you may want to keep the tasks you perform on your computer confidential, whether it's tracking your investments or sending email messages. Also, you should have some assurance that the information you enter into your computer remains intact and is available when you need it.
