Internet Security

Definition and Overview

Definition
Internet security is the practice of protecting and preserving private resources and information on the Internet.

Overview
Computer and network security are challenging topics among executives and managers of computer corporations. Even discussing security policies may seem to create a potential liability. As a result, enterprise management teams are often not aware of the many advances and innovations in Internet and intranet security technology. Without this knowledge, corporations are not able to take full advantage of the benefits and capabilities of the network. Together, network security and a well-implemented security policy can provide a highly secure solution. Employees can then confidently use secure data transmission channels and reduce or eliminate less secure methods, such as photocopying proprietary information, sending purchase orders and other sensitive financial information by fax, and placing orders by phone.
