Computer Security and Availability

Computer security is preventing and detecting unauthorized use of your system. It is said that the system which doesn’t allow any users to access its data and functions, has the highest security. In other hand more and more features and high performance will result in less secure systems. But such systems with no access, no performance and minimal features are simply useless in modern days. So we have to clearly balance between security and availability.
And another important fact about computer security in a enterprise is that the decisions regarding security ultimately should be driven by business requirements, not security requirements. Security requirements should be dictated by the business need, not the other way around.
A good article to refer about how to balance security and availability that I recommend is given below.
