Security on the Web

--Originally published at TC2027 – Titel der Website

I found a german article in the internet about Web-Security. The article was posted from the website


Here the most important topics about this article.

Nowadays web-security is more important than ever. Every internet user can be in a super short term a victim of internet criminals.

This dangers are waiting for victims:26470633086_6fb28ceeb7_z.jpg

Trojans, spyware, scareware, phishing – these are real threats to your money, your data and your integrity. When you’re on the Internet, you do not have to know every technical term. But you have to know what dangers lurk where and how to protect yourself from them. We have summarized the currently biggest dangers for you here.

A recommendation is also to protect your reputation in the internet. the talk is about blogs, forums and wikipedia. Nowadays anyone can publish virtually anything on the internet. So it is always important to think twice about the stuff you may post. Otherwise you can be victim of Cyber-Mobbing.

Anyone surfing the internet in Germany or running their own website has to follow hundreds of laws and regulations – and must count on a false step or a wrong decision with warnings, fines or even criminal consequences.

You do not have to be an IT professional to be reasonably safe from data thieves, scammers and rip-offs moving through the Internet. It is important that they protect themselves against the greatest risks and protect themselves where necessary.

“El que nada debe, nada teme”

“If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear” it’s a very common phrase (my parents use it a lot), and when it comes to our daily lives on the web, it’s used a lot (specially by the government).

At the time, the only way to do this was to write some kind of master key capable of unlocking the device (and every other iPhone too). Obviously, Apple refused because creating such a powerful backdoor into their devices would have easily fired back to they customers (either by hackers finding a way to replicate this master key or straight ahead by being used by the government for surveillance. Looking at you, NSA).

Whenever these kind of news rise up to the mainstream media, again, you get your typical internet user making use of that phrase I started this post.

“Why are iPhone users so against this backdoor the FBI is asking for?
It’s gonna help them get the bad guy! If they have nothing to hide they shouldn’t have nothing to fear!”

But if you stop for a second and think about it, this famous phrase doesn’t even make sense. As Edward Snowden would put it:

“…Privacy isn’t about something to hide. Privacy is about something to protect. That’s who you are. That’s what you believe in. Privacy is the right to a self. Privacy is what gives you the ability to share with the world who you are on your own terms. For them to understand what you’re trying to be and to protect

Web Security

IF Security == “The state of being protected or safe from harm”. THEN Web Security == “Keep a web server and its applications protected or safe from harm”.
