Is computer security important in nowdays?

--Originally published at Renato Gutiérrez Blog

Today we live in a world almost; not to say, totally connected thanks to the different communication systems, from the classic like the telephone calls and instantaneous text messages, through the messages of Whatsapp to a whole universe of applications lodged within the internet, like the networks social, digital newspapers, business systems, among others.

In addition, access to the internet was recently considered a human right, since it is considered that a person who does not have access to it, is almost uncommunicated and could present a disadvantage to compete (UN in Expansion, 2011).

Because virtually all of us have access to information through the Internet and its derivatives, it is of the utmost importance to protect the information and/or resources that we are interested in keeping in private and consistent information that is not altered (integrity). confidentiality and above all we could be interested that it is always available for your use.

These three concepts attack them in a precise and in depth way the subject of computer security, so it is useful to us at least to know that there are different tools to protect our resources from some malevolent hands. At the end of everything, in this world, we are not alone and it would be convenient to safeguard the security of our resources, which in some cases may represent an advantage over our competitors; in the case of a company.
