(BQ) The book examines the elements of computer security, employee roles and responsibilities, and common threats. It discusses the legal requirements that impact security policies, including Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Detailing physical security requirements and controls, this updated edition offers a sample physical security policy and includes a complete list of tasks and objectives that make up an effective information protection program.
Multicast and group security (Artech house computer security series) is a handbook for engineers, architects and other practitioners working in the field of Internet security. It presents detailed coverage of security technologies and techniques for IP (Internet protocol) multicast networks from the leading developer of the standards. It also examines important security issues relating to other group communication technologies. Algorithms and protocols for multi-party secure communication are included.
Describe the types of computer security risks Describe the types of computer security risks Identify ways to safeguard against computer Identify ways to safeguard against. Identify ways to safeguard against computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, denial of service attacks, back doors, and spoofing. Discuss techniques to prevent unauthorized computer access and use. Explain the options available for backing up computer resources.
WHY SECURITY As computers becoming a part of our daily routine, we end up in leaving some of our sensitive information on our PC’s. These starts from Password’s, E-Mail Id’s, Credit card numbers, online banking details etc. Then there is another risk called viruses and spyware when you are online. There is only one fundamental difference between a virus and spyware, viruses are written for destruction and spywares for gain. When we speak about computer security what it means is that, how we can prevent intruders from entering our systems.
As our society grows ever more reliant on computers, so it also becomes more vulnerable to computer crime. Cyber attacks have been plaguing computer users since the 1980s, and computer security experts are predicting that smart telephones and other mobile devices will also become the targets of cyber security threats in the future.
If you think computer security has improved in recent years, The Myths of Security will shake you out of your complacency. Longtime security professional John Viega, formerly Chief Security Architect at McAfee, reports on the sorry state of the industry, and offers concrete suggestions for professionals and individuals confronting the issue.
Why is security so bad? With many more people online than just a few years ago, there are more attackers -- and they're truly motivated. Attacks are sophisticated, subtle, and harder to detect than ever.
After you read this chapter you should be able to: Describe various types of network attacks, and identify ways to safeguard against these attacks, including firewalls and intrusion detection software; discuss techniques to prevent unauthorized computer access and use; identify safeguards against hardware theft and vandalism;...
