IT Security

What is IT Security?
Virus? Only viruses ?
No. Startup Items, cookies, wrong registry entries all fall under IT Security.
When we talk of viruses, we talk about floppies and internet. The general perception is they slow down the system and slows down every other system because they spread. But then what about Trojans? Trojans just wait to know what you are typing. The moment it knows you are typing your bank password, your bank balance becomes zero. The typing and password typing is difficult for any Trojan to distinguish. It might be easy if your user name for a site is your name itself.
If you want my opinion on IT Security policy, the first principle I suggest is acceptance of the fact that everyone spreads viruses. Including you.
The second principle is 360 Total Security. Use this software.
The third principle is buy a non Windows firewall. And disable Windows Firewall. I am not against Windows Firewall, but it is only important if you are the administrator. And why did I say disable Windows Firewall? It is because two firewalls will slow down the system.
So, use 360 total Security software. And if you can afford it, buy GlassWire Firewall suggested by 360 Total Security.
