Basics of IT Security

Basics of IT Security

IT Security or Information Technology security is a method to protect data present in anyone’s computer. This could range from home users to corporate, government, and security establishments. Attacks on computer systems include internal users and external threats and any IT Security policy needs to consider both these aspects of the attack.

With the invention and growth of the internet, cybersecurity adds to the woes of data theft with a multi-pronged attack from across the globe. The ever-growing dependence of the Internet for doing business and mobile devices communication necessitates businesses to have a policy on IT security and to protect their IT networks.

Though larger organizations understand the IT security & cyber threats and implemented systems to safeguard their network, many small to medium companies are unclear about the possible attacks. Many SME’s tend to ignore as they feel they won’t be a viable target.

In fact, all internet-facing organizations these days are vulnerable to attack and the question is when you will be attacked. The majority of the cyber-attacks are automated exploiting the known vulnerabilities in the prevailing hardware/software. Most of the time the attacks are not to a specific organization and random.

Security is a wide range of the issue and it needs to be addressed from a physical layer to cloud.
