Elements of Security: Computer Security – Devices

Computer security is a vital element to keeping your business data secure.  Computer security prevents unauthorized access.  But first we have to understand what qualifies as a computer.

According to Wikipedia.org, “A computer is a general purpose device that can be programmed to carry out a finite set of arithmetic or logical operations. Since a sequence of operations can be readily changed, the computer can solve more than one kind of problem.”  Translation: any device that accesses your business’ data.

Desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone, and iPad are just a few examples of what qualifies as a computer.  All of these devices offer up access points to your data that can be compromised.

In the next few weeks, we will explore steps your business can take to avoid unauthorized access.  We’ll cover the importance of passwords, administrative privilege and console lock.
