Cyber security: Do you have the ANSA?
Kathryn Bennet explains the issues facing computer users today and what can be done to prevent cyber crime
The term cyber security describes the processes, practices and body of technologies that are combined to protect networks, computers, data, programs and applications from attacks, unauthorised access or damage, in particular, from hackers. The fundamental areas of cyber security include application security, information security, network security, end-user education and disaster recovery/business continuity planning. The threats are ever-changing, the hackers behind the attacks (hacktivists) are smarter and more intelligent than ever before, using social engineering and new techniques . . .
