4 Reasons Why You Need Computer Security



There are many of us that are so careless about our devices. How many of us password our system or devices. Some do not even believe that it is neccesary to add strong passwords to their devices. This makes it very easy for intruders to have access to your devices. In this article, I want to talk about four reasons why you need computer security. Follow me as we are going to look at some of these reasons together in this article.

Computer Security is needed in order to protect the Confidentiality, Integrity and availability of computer systems and resources. If will ensure that information are available when they are needed and that it is coming from the expected source.


#2 Complexity 

You also need to know that computer administration and management has becomes so complex and this has provided more avenue for attacks. For instance some of us like to have many apps on our devices. The truth of the matter is that the more app that you have, the more medium for hackers to attack your devices. 


#3 Evolution of technology 

Another major is that evolution of new technologies has focused more on ease of use than security. Some of the new devices tries to make their devices more easy to use and they do not try in any way to make their devices difficult so that more people will appreciate their products. This also creates an avenue for hackers to attack legitimate users.


#4 Network paths
