Computers: Information Security
The widespread use of the Internet and intranets has resulted in an increased focus on security. Security threats range from damaging computer viruses to online credit card fraud and identity theft. Most organizations are now employing the services of security consulting firms which specialize in all aspects of information technology (IT) security. These firms assess computer systems for areas of vulnerability, manage firewalls and provide protection against intrusion and software viruses. They also play a vital role in homeland security by keeping track of people and information.
