Definition

Computer security refers to the protection of information whether on line or held on a computer system or similar - a PDA for example. With the growth of the internet and on-line purchasing and banking, computer security has become more of an issue. However, social networking also requires secure systems as people can have considerable amounts of personal information on-line which could aid credit card fraud and identity theft.
