IT security is about protecting information and information systems from unauthorized access and use.


Securing an IT infrastructure has many facets. They range from securing networks, cf., firewalls, intrusion detec-tion, to securing computers, cf., antivirus software, and to securing code, cf. security bugs and flaws. IT security is about protecting information and information systems from unauthorized access and use. Confidentiality, integrity and availability of information are core goals. Besides IT security, other security terms that are often used include network security, computer security, web security, mobile security, and software security.
