What are the two inherent characteristic of computers that make security so difficult?
Update, 14 July 2011.
There are many aspects or components of 'computer security' that attempting to identify just two characteristics is impossible.
Computer security first has three divisions:
- Physical security -- it might it be damaged, stolen, etc. or incur damage by way of the power supply.
- Systems security -- protection of the system and installed software - ensuring that programs are not tampered with and their function changed. Viruses are a big risk here.
- Information security -- protection of the Information stored.
This is sub-divided by
- 'Confidentiality' - can unauthorized people see it and
- 'Availability' - is it still there and accessible to authorized people when needed,
- 'Integrity' - is it still as correct as last time it was used,
- 'Transportability' - can it be safely and accurately transported aka network security.
In practice, the two biggest problems with securing computers today are:
- Computers are physically accessed by the humans. For example, you can 'touch' the computer and can thus place it at risk yourself with an arching spark of electricity. You can spill your liquid into it, or copy private data off to your own memory stick which you can them lose on a bus.
- The most popular operating systems -- whether Windows or Unix based -- are inherently insecure and lack the logic to provide a good basis for protecting software and data. Both were designed when security/ integrity were not important considerations. Integrity can not be 'bolted on' as an afterthought: it must be part of the philosophical design of the operating system. A system without integrity at its core can not be secure.
There are number of computers in a networks . To look after security of every link in the network is very difficult .

Which are characteristics of a good security plan?
Some of the recommended security software's for business computers are Kaspersky Internet Security, BidDefender Total Security, Trend Micro Internet Security and Panda Internet Security.

A small home network has been installed to interconnect three computers together for gaming and file sharing What two properties represent this network type?
Security is difficult to enforce as well as it acts as a P2P client / server setup.
There are inherent dangers in working as a security officer. Although this is the case there are many other jobs with equal or greater dangers and the dangers should be weighed by potential applicants.

What is a super-set of information security and includes security issues that do not involve computers?
If a small home network has been installed to interconnect three computers together for gaming and file sharing what two properties represent this type of network?
Difficult to enforce security. A computer that is responding to a file sharing request is functioning as a server.
Some security features provided with Macintosh computers are library randomization, application layer firewalls, sanboxes, application signing and secure guest accounts.
passwords in computers are used for security.
Computer security is making sure that one single computer is secure Network security is making suer that your network of computers is secure
To use only private computers To only use private computers.
Operating system protects the computers data from viruses and hackers on the network.. network security protects all devices, servers,m computers ,mainframes on the network.
Security was very tight and escaping was extremely difficult.
Enabling MAC address filtering improves security as only computers known to the network are allowed to join and any computers trying to join when their MAC address is not recognised are blocked.

Laptop security cables keep computers safe by securing them so they cannot be moved by anyone other than the owner. They can have combination locks so they are even more secure and immovable.

Answer Effective Network Security has many layers. It requires security features at the local level (on each individual computer, and on the network level. A network is group of computers that share a common connection and so therefore are on the same network. For example, every computer that connects and uses to your home wifi are on the same network. A network is a a group of individuals like i said. Therefore, computers themselves must… Read More

Some good and easy to install security software for business computers are Norton anti-virus and Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. Both software's are super cheap and can be installed within 5 mins.
No. Physical security measures refer to actual, physical barriers to prevent people from accessing a system or using it in a certain way. An example of a physical security measure would be using locks to prevent theft of computers, or keeping critically important computers in a separate place where they are not likely to be damaged or interfered with.
There are several uses for computers in shopping malls. Computers may be used by mall employees to carry out work responsibilities, and they may also be used as part of the mall's security system.
