How Computer Security Has Evolved Over The Years

Hackers have become more skilled, and their attacks, more sophisticated and unpredictable over the last three decades. When large numbers of computers are affected, hundreds of industries can be slowed down, and hundreds of communities and millions of people suffer. The world is only too fortunate that cyber security has become more potent as well.

When the first computer worm wrought havoc in 1989, it succeeded in almost shutting down the entire web. It was a creation of the mind of hacker Robert Morris, and it made a lot of people realize that measures have to be taken that would allow good people to detect and prevent future attacks.

Antiviruses were planned after millions of PCs globally were crashed by the Melissa and ILOVEYOU programs. Technology experts came up with a number of programs that could give notifications to users and quarantine harmful programs.

Today, antivirus programs like Norton Anti-Virus, Avast, Bitdefender, and AVG all update regularly to combat unwanted programs, viruses, malwares, and more cyber-threats. Even operating systems nowadays have their own built-in security programs, such as Microsoft’s ScanDsk program. Anti-Virus programs today are well-equipped to handle a variety of threats on a variety of levels. Cyber-security has even evolved to the point where security programs can attach themselves to separate programs for very specific types of protection.

How To Manage An Office A/V System

Maintaining an A/V system doesn’t have to be necessarily done by tech professionals aside from the initial installation and routine checkups. However, the task of managing the system must be delegated to a person who has an idea how to clean, store, and troubleshoot the projectors, screens, audio systems, and other equipment.

Those who are not yet using wireless means for their presentations have to be aware of the respective cables for the projectors, and even wires for the microphones and speakers. These parts must be installed properly to ensure clear images and sound. In this case, it is best to assign a staff member who can manage the different wires and cables.

For collaborative work environments that utilize wireless connectivity, it would be more convenient for the staff if almost everyone on the team knows how to set up the equipment for presentations. Installing the supporting programs and learning how to mirror, hide, or split screens would make presentations easier. Knowledge in using remote presenters is also necessary.
