Why bother with information security?
The basic reasons we care about information systems security are that some of your information needs to be protected against unauthorized disclosure for legal and competitive reasons; all of the information we store and refer to must be protected against accidental or deliberate modification and must be available in a timely fashion. We must also establish and maintain the authenticity (correct attribution) of documents we create, send and receive. Finally, the if poor security practices allow damage to our systems, we may be subject to criminal or civil legal proceedings; if our negligence allows third parties to be harmed via our compromised systems, there may be even more severe legal problems.

What is email spoofing/spamming?
· Email "Spoofing"
Email spoofing refers to email that appears to have been originated from one source when it was actually sent from another source. Individuals, who are sending "junk" email or "SPAM", typically want the email to appear to be from an email address that may not exist. This way the email cannot be traced back to the originator.
· Email "spamming"
Refers to sending email to thousands and thousands of users - similar to a chain letter. Spamming is often done deliberately to use network resources. Email spamming may be combined with email spoofing, so that it is very difficult to determine the actual originating email address of the sender. Some email systems, including our Microsoft Exchange, have the ability to block incoming mail from a specific address. However, because these individuals change their email address frequently, it is difficult to prevent some spam from reaching your email inbox.
What is a Hard Disk failure?
Generally speaking, a hard disk can fail in four ways that will lead to a potential loss of data:
· Firmware Corruption / Damage to the firmware zone
