Historical Laws and Security Page:1 There are many forms of security from the past that somewhat shaped the way security works today. There are 6 that played major roles in showing us that security has been around for thousands of years and how exactly the security worked in those times. The Code of Hammurabi The Code of Hammurabi was written by King Hammurabi in 1750 B.C.. This code was written for the King's rule over Babylonia. The code is made up of some 282 clauses. It's main focus put into modern terms would be “an eye for an eye”. The punishments that it outlined are considered, today, barbaric. Draco's Law Draco's Law was established in 621 B.C. by a Greek citizen of Athens who was chosen to write it. These were the first written laws in Greece. The majority of the punishments under the code were death. In fact, when a law is written today that seems to be very harsh it is referred to as draconian.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
