Implementing true security is essential in today’s era of increased security threats and crimes that yield large numbers of causalities. True security refers to comprehensive and high quality security solutions. For corporations, the days of ignoring security and hoping for the best are over. For homes, crimes always increase as the economy worsens making true security more important now than ever.
True security addresses traditional crime, but also new threats that continue to emerge and advance in sophistication including terrorism and hacking. The digital world we now live in requires significant security on our home and business computer networks to protect our information that can be stolen from half a world away. The statistics related to how fast unprotected computers are hacked when on the Internet are astounding so true security has to include protecting the computer systems we use.
The theories to follow as true security is implemented are the same as they have been in the past. Deterring threats is optimal, detecting threats that decide to pursue is critical, and defending against threats as they pursue is essential in the spirit of true security. The application of true security costs money and requires input from industry experts, like Orion Security Solutions, but trying to cut corners to save money typically results in an inadequate security design or implementation.
We look forward to seeing you here at The O or more insight into true security.
