Having gone to many organizations, data remain the most important asset. In real sense data, security refers to protect data from corruption and unauthorized access. Computers’ data requires high security from internal and external threats. This threat includes virus attacks, accidental deleting of data and natural disaster from the internet.

The online has issues with theft of data through browsing through the site and shop online. The theft of data in an organization leads to lose of massive money. However, when browsing online, the organization should enhance data security, especially from hackers. This is because online has hackers who target corrupting with ca company's database and even deleting the important files of the company.

Although data loss can occur in any reason, a company can take possible measures, which include having a backup on their critical data. The data security in a company can be enhanced by use of backup software, which enables keeping of data in CDs and other hard disks. Backup method enables a company to be saved from data loss.

However, companies can install an antivirus program in their computers. The program should be updated regularly to enable scanning on data in the computers. The anti-spy ware program is necessary for the data security. Meaning that company which wants to secure the data can install this program in the computer for regular scanning.

Companies can maintain data security in their computers by installing firewall software in the gateway computer. The software blocks the accession of data from internally or externally. It is advisable to avoid opening the links from unknown sources.

On the other hand, when transmitting data online, it is better not to disclose the process to people. If a company wants to protect their computers, they have to look for the latest operating system like patches and security updates then download.

In the server room of a company, only the authorized people should enter the room. This will help to maintain the physical security of the company. Nevertheless, the company should train the employees on the different computer threats and the guide them on how to use the security software to eliminate the data threats.

Some companies install the network software. The software enables the company to monitor the work of their network users. Furthermore, these companies use 128-bit SSL encryption to transfer their files online through FTP.

The company’s data can be more secured when anti key logger software is installed in the computer. However, less access by employees in the server increases the chances of securing the company’s data. The company can protect the computer network through implementing a firewall in computers in the company.

Data's protection can be enhanced by use of password. This is true since the password protects critical documents. Nevertheless, the company must implement strong passwords, which are not exposed to everyone. Regularly, a company must update the software inventory with data recovery software.

Company should never forget to update all the computer browsers in the computers, also update the operating systems.
