Security in Today's World

Written by Paul Bliss

There are many things in life that are worth protecting. Our children, our valuables, our resources and of course, ourselves. Only twenty years ago, if security was mentioned, you were speaking of protecting your home. And you were most likely discussing a security system, monitoring, watchdogs, firearms and cameras.

Withrepparttar explosion ofrepparttar 132009 personal computer, andrepparttar 132010 internetís ease of access to information, security has now taken on additional roles. With over 605 million people online at any given moment worldwide, criminals are no longer bound by geographic location. Todayís cyber criminal can hack fromrepparttar 132011 comfort of his home just by getting online.

There are software programs that do nothing but scanrepparttar 132012 internet for un-secure ports and open networks so that they can enter into those unprotected machines to access critical information. There are many users who know little about internet security and rely on their ISP to provide it for them.

To look deeper into this topic, letís examinerepparttar 132013 qualities that make security both similar and different. With your home, you have a physical area that you can protect with fire and motion sensors, cameras, glass-break detectors and decals strategically placed to deter would-be thieves. For your computer, you protect a virtual space usually containing sensitive information relevant to your personal finances or key identity theft items such as family names and social security numbers. To protect these resources, one must install software (anti-virus, port scanners, Trojan hunting software, firewalls) as one level of protection. You can also add another layer of security through a hardware firewall of connectivity to and fromrepparttar 132014 internet or network.

Both home security and computer security have maintenance costs associated with them. Reliable home security will usually consist of a one-time fee to installrepparttar 132015 hardware in your home, and then an agreement to have 24-hour monitoring service for a given length of time. Computer security will consist of buyingrepparttar 132016 software and then either a monthly or yearly subscription fee to receiverepparttar 132017 latest information and protection from internet threats.

One difference betweenrepparttar 132018 two arerepparttar 132019 methods of monitoring. While computer security is only responsive whilerepparttar 132020 computer is active or online, home security monitoring is responsive at all times providedrepparttar 132021 system is properly armed.

Another distinction isrepparttar 132022 method of response. In home security, a human will respond by dispatching police, fire or EMS directly to your home or business site. On a computer,repparttar 132023 response is whenrepparttar 132024 software vendor becomes aware ofrepparttar 132025 problem, creates a solution, and has an update available for download.
