What is computer security?

Security can be defined as the state of well being of information and infrastructure that are stored inside our devices.



Computer Security is the protection of computer resources and other information that are stored and processed on a computer system.



Why then do we need computer security…

#1 CIA

Computer Security is needed in order to protect the Confidentiality, Integrity and availability of computer systems and resources.


If will ensure that information is available when they are needed and that it is coming from the expected source.



#2 Complexity 

You also need to know that computer administration and management has become so complex and this has provided more avenue for attacks.


For instance, some of us like to have many apps on our devices. The truth of the matter is that the more app that you have, the more medium for hackers to attack your devices. 



#3 Evolution of technology 

Another major is that the evolution of new technologies has focused more on ease of use than security. Some of the new devices try to make their devices easier to use and they do not try in any way to make their devices difficult so that more people will appreciate their products.


This also creates an avenue for hackers to attack legitimate users.


#4 Network paths

Also, when two or more devices are connected to share resources together, it will create an avenue for network attacks.


In this case, once the intruder is successful in attacking one of the devices, it will also spread to other devices on the network as well.
