For most people it is very difficult to understand IT-Security and also the need to apply it…. To me it looks sometimes like that people see a computer as a modern typewriter and/or a game console, but that’s not the case, I will try to explain to you a computer in a visual manner so that you might able to understand better why there is a need to protect your computer and also why a computer is in danger to get a virus, trojan, and other malware infections. Why a computer could become a possible Cyber-Weapon who is attacking web-sites and perhaps also your Government’s web-sites!

But let us start first with some funny videos who will explain to you also about IT-Security in a visual way…

Introduction

Try every time to see a computer as a technical machine, which it is, and when connected to Internet it is your vehicle who navigates you trough the Data Highway (Internet). So, vehicles as you know need sometimes maintenance and may also represent (even new ones) technical problems which may effect the security for you and also for the community.

Some questions to wake you up to critical-thinking, if you permit ;)

Explaining the dangers of infected computers and the dangers to your Government also:

        • Would you allow a person  entry with contagious disease into your home or institution? An epidemic would be the result!
          • An infected #computer is same ===> epidemic danger!
        • YOU know that when driving your car that you could hit a person by accident!? Do you realize that this could happen also virtually (in Internet) with your computer!? This person’s computer would get also infected and this person would need to repair its computer which would cost money as most people don’t know how to get rid of an infection! Are YOU aware that YOU are responsible for that!?
  • Are YOU a good patriot? Would YOU help to defend your country and Government against attacks? So do so also on Internet! Learn the basics of IT-Security!
  • Do YOU know that Cyber-Criminals earn more money than others with Drugs, and that with YOUR computer!?
  • Do YOU know that Cyber-Criminals are better organized as Police and FBI and…?

What did we learn so far?

We learned already:

        • We need an antivirus and a firewall. This is the absolute minimum for any computer!
        • Internet (the virtual world) is exactly the same as the real world. There are bad and good guys. We need to protect us and the community against the bad guys!
        • Any computer with Windows, Mac and Linux Operating Systems and…, are vulnerable! Nobody is perfect!
        • We can’t trust any web site! Some web sites are infected and malicious! By “drive-by-download” we will infect also our computer by visiting such a prepared web site!
        • We need critical-thinking when working on Internet!
        • Our own computer could become a #cyberweapon and helping to attack our own Government!
