What is Computer Security ?

Computer security training should be the top priority of businesses that use computers or Internet-connected devices (IoTs) in their workplace. Even those who use mobile phones and tablets for work need computer security.

Fortunately, basic computer security is easy. Several measures such as password protection, two factor authentication, access control and email hygiene can be implemented easily.

But if your business depends heavily on technology; you would need to put in place more complex measures. This is because such dependence increases your vulnerability to cyber attacks. Today’s criminals are known to use vicious tools such as ransomware to disrupt businesses.

To protect the privacy of your computer files, and ensure that your computer is available when you need to use it, you need to ensure that your computer is secure at all times.

As you go through this course, we’ll introduce you to simple measures that you need to take to help secure your computer against threats, such as viruses.

We’ve divided this course into two parts.

  1. In Part 1, you’ll be introduced to malicious software and other threats to your system and data
  2. In Part 2, you’ll cover other important computer security topics, such as choosing strong passwords, using the Internet safely, and making sure that your computer is physically sure.

Use of mobile devices for everyday work inherently increases the risk of a security breach. Major security issues include mobile malware or viruses, use of the device in other people’s networks, firewalls, wireless networks, shoulder surfing, etc.

If you allow workers to bring in or use mobile devices for work, you need to put in place serious mobile device security measures. Beginning from inventory management, you need to have processes for mobile use, management of mobile applications, access management and data security over mobile devices.

To start with, enforce a BYOD policy. Along with this, you need to put in place mobile security measures such as application control, encryption, data backup, and remote wipe and control over devices that carry sensitive data.

Even in normal day-to-day use, mobile devices can put you at higher risk of a security breach. Major challenges include loss or theft of your devices, failure to encrypt data, lack of password protection, mobile malware, and fake apps.

Mobile device security policies need to be robust, and comprehensive in defining security practices. At bare minimum, your policies need to cover password security, secure use of apps, data encryption, remote wipe and device inventory.
