By luckyher ·
How secure is our security in this high tech-world in our digital age now and toword the future that we are going forward? will we all be in a win-win situations at the end or some winners and some losers or perhaps even heros and vilians? uuh.....do all of us feel lucky and secure?....will there ever be a such 100% plus security in this high tech world of ours? why can all of us have peace of mind and working together for a better safe, secure and clean high tech-world toward the future? are we in the digital age yet? what will it be next? will it be safe?

There is absolutely no such thing as 100% secure anything in the digital age. We are certainly there already and have been for quite sometime. Things are getting progressively better as our understanding of things increases and with better encryption algorithms, etc.

The best security paradigm that we can really hope for is one that places such time constraints on an attempt at cracking, hacking, etc., that it isn't feasible for anyone to bother attempting.

There will always be winners,losers, heroes, & villains regardless of our collective efforts, so there will never be an entirely safe & secure place as long as there are people that feel there's something to be gained by proving that security can be circumvented.

The only truely safe system is the one in the locked room that is not plugged in. Not a very useful server, but fairly secure.

The best security is to use your firewalls, virus protection, proxies, etc. Be cautious, download only from known good sites, virus scan everything, keep your scanner up to date, patch your systems, review your logs, etc. Be paranoid, use complex passwords, change them periodically.

Good Luck!

Data security is only as good as the user community wants it to be. As an administrator you can lock down the system so tightly it cannot be used. All user access levels and remote access are compromises. As long as we deploy OS's (not just Microsoft's) that are not secure we will ALWAYS have security violations. Some crackers consider themselves heroes for being smart enough to break in to someone else's system. Some hackers consider themselves heroes because they illustrate code weaknesses. Ae they villians if they teach us something ? As far a a clean , secure and safe high-tech world it just won't happen. High tech manufacturing produces a different kind of pollution vs traditional mfg. methods.

Security for the enterprise requires evaluation of benchmarks of competing platforms to get one that really can be made secure & to follow the vendor reccommendations to make it secure & to have the technical staff stay on top of evolving info to keep it secure.

In reality there is a turn over of management to people willing to sacrifice security in the name of benefits from add-ons that compromise security & undermine tech staff access to continuing security education, or undermine corporate support for a sensible security policy.

For end users of the internet, the prospects are dim - look at viruses & con games & spam & identity theft & pedophiles ,,, and on the gov front poor pay means our society is saying that teachers & police are not important.

Some users are maturing in asking for better marketplace products but still drowned out by people demanding lowest price no matter what consequences.

There is no security in this crazy world...
Usualy we speak about risk level: acceptable, not acceptable.
When one "thing" interoperate with other "things", they are vulnerable by definition. Moreover, if you accept risk level in the current situation, you can`t relax, because "security is not a product, security is a process".

With best regards,
Vlad.
