Security Measures of a System

The term System security refers to the technical innovations and procedures applied to the hardware and operating systems to protect against deliberate or accidental damage from a defined threat. In contrast, data security is the protection of data from disclosure, modification and destruction. Data privacy and security are issues that go beyond the scope of system development. They are actually a societal concern. Our organization depends heavily on the use of data bases requires special controls to maintain viable information. These controls are classified in to three general categories.
  • Physical securities are production from fire flood and other physical damage.
