What is Internet Security



Internet security depends on specific resources and standards to protect data sent through the internet. It includes different types of encryption such as Pretty Good Privacy (PGP). 

Other aspects of a secure web setup include firewalls, which block unwanted traffic, anti-malware, anti-spyware, and anti-virus programs that work from specific networks or devices to monitor Internet traffic for dangerous attachments.

Internet security is becoming a top priority for both businesses and governments in general. Good Internet security protects financial statements and much more that can be handled by a business or agency's server and network hardware. 

Inadequate Internet security can threaten to collapse an e-commerce business or any other operation where data gets routed to the Web.


Internet Security :


Web security can be termed as the technical and managerial procedures applied to computer systems to ensure the availability, integrity and confidentiality of computer assets and services from associated threats and vulnerabilities.


Types of Internet Security:


Web security is divided into two (a) computer security, and (b) network security.

In general terms, computer security is the process of securing a single, standalone computer, whereas network security is the process of securing an entire network of computers.


a) Computer Security:


Technology and managerial procedures applied to computer systems to ensure the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of data managed by computers.


b) Network Security:


The protection of networks and their services from unauthorized modification, destruction, or disclosure and the provision of assurances that the network performs its critical functions correctly and has no harmful side effects. The major points of weakness in computer systems are hardware, software, and data. However, other components of a computer system can be targeted.
