Security is protecting something or keeping something safe. One of my battle buddies didn’t put up a tool today so he didn’t keep good security on it. Even though we told him to make sure he put it up. The definition of "security" depends on one's perspective. At the simplest level, security may be defined as "the quality or state of being secure, "freedom from danger," or "freedom from fear or anxiety." Of the many other levels on which one can analyze security, the most relevant here are individual, group, regional, national, and global. Our task is then relatively simple; we consider how security is defined at these different levels. What emerges is a framework upon which security agreements are constructed and implemented. Individual level, security is most often understood as safety. This safety includes freedom from harm, whether physical or psychological. Threats to an individual's security can produce the fear or anxiety. The most common forms of protection are legal structures that protect individuals from threats to their security. These include, but are not limited to, laws against murder, sex crimes, bodily harm, theft, and psychological harm such as coercion. The state assumes responsibility for constructing and implementing these legal regulations. Security can be related to one's ability to attain the fundamental physical needs of a home, food, and social-economic needs such as a job. The concept of individual security can therefore be linked to an individual's perception of her or his standard of living. There are many different types of security. Like I said before, it just depends on your perspective. The definition of security at the group level shares many similarities with the definition of individual security; as the individual expects to have security of person, so does the group. But at the group level, an important aspect of security is freedom from discrimination. While an individual certainly can be mistreated for her or his affiliation with a religious, national, or ethnic group, this mistreatment is more obvious and perhaps more successfully prevented when an entire group is subject to the same mistreatment. Group security may be interpreted as safety from threats to the group's identity. The national level of security is probably the most often examined and contentious definition of security. Internet Security is the most important aspect of information technology. It has been years since computer has been invented and to keep the information confidential we have to safeguard this information. The importance of integrating security measures into systems development. Every business has their own security systems to reach their goals of information security. The computer world created security systems in order to reduce risk, maintain confidentiality, ensure the reliability of data resources, and compliance with national security laws and privacy policies and laws. Cyber security is a big thing in my home town. We had class after class about it in high school. They would always tell us not to put out any of our personal information and never talk to anybody we didn’t know. Of course we all did though. We didn’t care at the time. Now that I think about it, I understand where they are coming from. You could be talking to an old man and think she was a girl your age. There are some messed up people in this world that would do anything to get you alone. I wish I would have paid more attention now. It’s actually a really serious thing and people really need to watch what they put on the internet. Colleges and jobs can even go on your face book and look at pictures or anything you put on there. If it’s a bad or illegal thing, they could refuse to…

During times of national crisis, we, as American citizens, may be less likely to think twice about being subjected to government surveillance. After all, it’s in the name of the greater good, and for the sake of protecting our country from terrorist threats, right? It’s not quite that simple. People shouldn’t be so quick to give up their privacy rights in the name of national security because this makes it too easy for the government to abuse their power and strip citizens of rights for reasons…

Security Engineers have discussed the possible effects of this situation on the viewing public. One area that is currently receiving attention…
which served as the base of how she lived her life. At the time of Condi’s childhood,
blacks were still looked down upon and treated with less respect and had less
opportunities than those of white citizens. Partly because of this was the reason her
parents were so strict and serious about raising her the right way. It was believed that a
black person had to be “twice as good” to be equal to a white person. The Rice’s strived
to be three times as good. Although they lived right in the middle of segregation…
Homeland Security to Activate ‘National License Plate Recognition Database’
“The Department of Homeland Security is set to activate a national license plate tracking system that will be shared with law enforcement, allowing DHS officers to take photos of any license plate using their smartphone and upload it to a database which will include a “hot list” of “target vehicles” (Watson). This system will track down license plate numbers that are seen through cameras or are voluntarily entered into…

the separation of power as well as guarantee individuals liberties. Australia has been dedicated to its democratic system for more than a century.
