What is security and why is it a benefit?
Security is the degree of protection against danger, damage, loss, and criminal activity. Security as a form of protection can include structures and processes that provide or improve security as a condition. The Institute for Security and Open Methodologies (ISECOM) in the OSSTMM 3 defines security as "a form of protection where a separation is created between the assets and the threat. This includes but is not limited to the elimination of either the asset or the threat. Security as a national condition was defined in a United Nations study (1986), so that countries can develop and progress freely.
Security has to be compared to related concepts: safety, continuity, reliability. The key difference between security and reliability is that security must take into account the actions of people attempting to cause destruction.
IT Systems Security Courses
It has never been so important to business to ensure the security of their IT systems, with so many systems interconnected, sharing information and accessible in so many ways. The challenges for businesses are concerned with ensuring the security of the vast and complex infrastructure of computers, servers and networks, as although computing technology is used to provide new or improved services, it gives potential attackers new opportunities to cause damage by accessing or modifying sensitive information.
IT security, also known as data security is designed to protect an organisation's valuable resources in the form of information, hardware and software. IT security is incorporated in the overall safety procedures that businesses put in place to protect their assets in dealing with threats and dangers that may exist against the organisation and its activities. IT security focuses on establishing the potential threats and creating protection measures and often helps delegates gain an understanding the threats and how to deal with probabilities of being subjected to injury and to balance the costs of counter measures for protection against the value of what it protects.
IT security threats have many forms, including hackers and viruses, or theft of information on a computer or a network. The challenge for organisations today is to develop methods so that information can not be inadvertently destroyed (e.g backup preparations) or that the company has financial problems at the computer head (manual procedures which alternative approaches to computer breakdowns). Training and courses in IT Security, cover issues such as simple things like choosing a complicated password to protect a computer or implementing a firewall to close small gaps in the ports of large networks, and building a continuous secure network.
