Why Consider Security in IT Planning and Implementation?
Security is, without doubt, emerging as one of the most important elements in IT planning and implementation.
Companies and individual users alike are being bombarded with more, and more devastating, attacks than ever before – and many are not winning the fight against today’s new breed of IT criminals.
Experts explain that, in the past, hackers and virus-writers were typically youngsters trying to test the technical expertise and their reward was glory rather than money.
Today’s cyber threats, on the other hand, come from well-organised groups of real criminals who are in it for the money – and there is plenty to be made.
Malware (malicious software) has moved well beyond the nuisance element and today can not only bring a business to its knees by crashing strategic systems, but can extract information to use in crimes that the company isn’t even aware are being perpetrated.
Even the traditional virus – a piece of code that executes within another, legitimate, program – is now being used to manipulate data and create havoc.
Trojans – applets hidden within other, innocent, files and set to to trigger at specific times – have matured to being able to harvest information and send it back over the Internet.
Awareness Isn’t Just a Good Idea, It’s the Law
