Data security is the practice of keeping data protected from corruption and unauthorised access. The focus behind data security is to ensure availability and privacy while protecting the integrity of personal or corporate data.
Data is the unprocessed form of information stored as columns and rows in databases, network servers and personal computers. There may also be a wide range of information from personal files, such as corporate strategy and planning, intellectual property or market analytics. Unauthorised access of data can lead to numerous problems, and multiple recriminations.
Secure computing is perfectly achievable, but it takes the right mix of processes and technologies and must be implemented in such a way that it empowers bona fide end users, rather than hinders. Creating a secure computing environment demands an overall security strategy and a carefully assessed mix of technologies to create exactly the right level and configuration of security.
