The protection of data against unauthorized access. Programs and
can be secured by issuing passwords and digital certificates to
authorized users. However, passwords only validate that a correct
number has been entered, not that it is the actual person. Digital
certificates and biometric techniques (fingerprints, eyes, voice, etc.)
provide a more secure method (see authentication).
After a user has been authenticated, sensitive data can be encrypted to
prevent eavesdropping (see cryptography).
Although precautions can be taken to authenticate users, it is much more difficult to determine if an authorized employee is doing something malicious. Someone may have valid access to an account for updating, but determining whether phony numbers are being entered requires a great deal more processing. The bottom line is that effective security measures are always a balance between technology and personnel management.
