Security and Privacy

23/02/2010

In a connected world, computer security is vitally important. Even if you only make use of computer for personal activities, and aren't too worried about protecting the information stored on your PC, if you don't take security precautions, you can end up causing problems for other people, if your computer becomes infected with some worm or virus, and without your knowledge, starts attempting to infect other people's systems.

If you are in business, it is far more important that you take measures to secure your computing environment, as you could find yourself unwittingly releasing data in breach of privacy laws, and possibly commercially sensitive to your business, if you don't have a serious attitude to maintaining good security policies.
