Computer and Data Security : A fact that is a concern for all large businesses in today’s technological age is whether and how secure the data that is kept on computers is. It is a fact that several times malicious software has been found on users and financial information, tender offers, customer lists and even personal information and documents have been leaked. The interception of such information can be disastrous for a company operating not only in the private but also in the public sector.
Antivirus can stop such software at a satisfactory level.
Given the proper use of these programs. It is not enough to install an antivirus or firewall on every computer in the company, the user must also know how to use the program. Hackers have full knowledge of these programs and can easily mislead users and sometimes even the protection programs.
A user can be deceived by methods such as phishing if they only need to know one of the e-mails we contact. The would-be hacker creates an e-mail account exactly the same as the one we are used to exchanging daily messages with and sends us a picture or a link that says something about our area of interest. When this link is opened, if it is “well done” it is not recognised by the firewall as a virus, but even if it is not so professionally done who would imagine that the e-mail he regularly talks to has been sent by malware?
The above is one of the many ways they use to access personal data. An experienced user might recognize the malware and not open it, but it is not enough to be just one knowledgeable user as attacks of this type work in chains. If one computer is attacked by the company’s system, it is very easy to attack higher levels through other techniques.
Staff should be trained in electronic data security and computers should be regularly checked for harmful software, which may not be recognised by the window or Linux protection system, but which may have unauthorised access to files on our computer.
