Security Management

  • Dinesh Chandra Verma

The goal of systems management is to try to keep computer systems and network running properly and flawlessly. In order to do so, computer systems must be accessible to the people who are authorized to use them, and not be accessible to anyone who are not authorized to use them. An unauthorized person can cause several problems in the operation of a system, including denying access to legitimate users, disrupting the operation of the system, or cause the system to behave in ways that could be detrimental to the users. As a result, security management is a key aspect of any type of computer systems management.
