Summary

As the world's computers become more tightly interconnected through always-up Internet links, system security becomes more important. Those who wish to do you harm or to use your system in harming others can attack in many different ways, ranging from tricking you or your users into revealing sensitive information to physically stealing your hardware to breaking in remotely using any of several techniques. Keeping one step ahead of the crackers in all these areas is a challenging task. You can make a good start by taking a few precautions, such as picking good passwords, removing unnecessary servers, and keeping your software up-to-date. You should also watch for news of security breaches so that you can update your system quickly when it becomes necessary.
