Security matters to everyone, especially electronic security. We often take for granted the ability to conduct our lives without hindrance or harm. But the world is constantly under threat from those seeking to wreak damage and destruction, disrupt the technological infrastructures on which much of our modern lives depend, or steal our assets or identities.
Electronic security systems employing high-definition video and audio surveillance, coupled with networked communication and storage, have long been applied to guard and protect commercial enterprises, public buildings, industrial plants and transport infrastructure.
Recent hardware developments make it possible now to deploy comparable security capabilities in low-cost consumer products. These offer effective protection for individual family homes, while also supporting attractive features such as web-based access, allowing images to be monitoring remotely from any location.
Latest trends in homeland security measures include new types of scanning equipment for air, rail and sea terminals, designed to detect everything from human stowaways to concealed weapons and sample traces of explosive compounds, covert surveillance and communication tracking techniques, and integrated systems that carry out sophisticated analysis on Big Data information sets.
Security in the online world becomes ever more critical with the constant threat of catastrophic attacks by a growing band of cyber criminals set on exploiting any vulnerabilities that may exist – whether in websites, apps, programs, the underlying fabric of the internet or ultimately the naïve way in which net users often communicate and interact based on implicit but sometimes misplaced trust.
All types of digital traffic are potentially at risk: commercially-sensitive business data exchanges, infrastructure systems control and status information, financial transactions and much more. Effective protection and assurance must build upon robust methods that create secure schemes for data communications, storage and processing, based on the use of cryptographically strong algorithms. Capable systems need to comprehensively support and sustain three fundamental aspects of information security: confidentiality, integrity and availability.
