Computer security also referenced as cyber security involves the protection of computer systems from theft and damage of hardware, software and information therein contained as well as potential disruption or misdirection of the services they provide.
Cyber security includes controlling physical access to your hardware as well as protecting against harm that may come via unsolicited network access, malicious data and code injection from external and internal threat sources. Malpractice by operators, whether intentional or accidental, IT operators are susceptible to being tricked into deviating from secure procedures through various methods of deception.
