All computers connected to networks are vulnerable to security violations from outsiders as well as insiders, and to virus infections and other forms of computer crimes. Information systems security refers to precautions taken to keep all aspects of information system ( e.g., all hardware, software, network equipment, and date) safe from unauthorized use or access. That means that you have to secure not only the personal computers on people’s desks but also the notebook computers, the handhelds, the servers, all levels of the network, and any gateways between the network and the outside world. As result, the need for tight computer and network security has increased dramatically. Rapid development of automation processes and the penetration of the computers in all fields of life have lead to appearance of a range of peculiar problems. One of these problems is the necessity of providing effective protection to information and means of its processing.
