In the computer industry, the term security, also known as IT security or cybersecurity, refers to the techniques which ensure that data which is stored in a computer or on a network cannot be compromised or read by anyone who does not have authorization. Computer security measures frequently utilize data encryption, which is the translation of data into a form which is unintelligible without a mechanism which is capable of deciphering it. Passwords, a secret phrase, word, or set of symbols which gives a user access to a program or system, are also often used. This category is devoted to sites about the protection of data and system resources from intrusion, unauthorized access or illicit use. Topics here include sites about biometrics, firewalls, and other solutions to prevent or remove viruses and malware.
