    What is digital security?

    Digital security is an all-encompassing term for the tools that are used to secure your identity, data, assets, and devices.


    Integrity makes sure that the data you’re keeping confidential and secure hasn’t been modified or corrupted. You also need to consider the source of the data. Can you be sure that it is coming from the right person, and that person is who they say they are?


    Lastly, digital security needs to work properly and run at all times for it to be effective. This happens by maintaining all hardware, performing hardware repairs in a timely manner, and ensuring your operating system is free of any bugs, worms, or viruses.
