Online Security is a branch of computer security that establishes rules and measures to protect against threats such as viruses, spam, and hackers, as well as enforce firewall and parental controls.
Online security involves the authorization of access to data in a network, which is controlled by the network administrator. Online security covers a variety of computer networks, both public and private, that are used in everyday jobs that conduct transactions and communications among businesses, government agencies and individuals.
