<title>Introduction to computer security</title>
<para>No one book can teach you everything about computer security. Computer security is not simply an item on a list that must be done once and then it is "completed". Computers are very powerful tools, and just as they can be used to teach, create, and produce, they can also be used for more nefarious purposes. By taking a proactive approach to computer security, and treating it as a process, you will be much more successful in keeping the security, confidentiality, and integrity of your data intact. You first need to identify your <firstterm>threat model</firstterm>; that is, what advisaries are you attempting to keep out? A sophisticated nation-state requires a much different security plan than a random hacker.</para>
