For most people it is very difficult to understand IT-Security and also the need to apply it…. To me it looks sometimes like that people see a computer as a modern typewriter and/or a game console, but that’s not the case, I will try to explain to you a computer in a visual manner so that you might able to understand better why there is a need to protect your computer and also why a computer is in danger to get a virus, trojan, and other malware infections. Why a computer could become a possible Cyber-Weapon who is attacking web sites and perhaps also your Government’s web-sites!
English: Forewarned is Forearmed! Deutsch (German): Gefahr erkannt is Gefahr gebannt! French (Français): Danger connu est danger vaincu !
By seeing the above chart you see what were the attacks in 2011, so imagine how that will be in the future! It will not become better, not so fast, anyway! So, protect ALL your devices where there is a mini-computer involved, thus meaning also your iPad, iPhones, Mac's, Windows PC's, any smartphone... You will certainly one day work with "Bring Your Own Device" (#BYOD) and if not secured and updated constantly these devices will be risk for your company, school and Government! Or would YOU like that your digital device will take part in an attack of your own Government!?

In French (en français) :
Stay secure and think on your responsabilities while using "Bring Your Own Device" [BYOD], advice ;)
