Improving the Security of Your Residence
A general definition explains security as resilience against or to have certain freedom from a particular external opposing force. We can also say that security is from any alarming forces. Apart from that, the term security has other ways in which can be used to put things into certain perspectives: for example, the availability of essential goods (like food security), absence of lack (financial security), containment (secure room), resilience from potential harm or damage (such as secure foundations), state of mind (such as emotional security) and secrecy (such as secure communication through a telephone line). Security forces, cyber security system, security cameras and so on are some of the examples of systems and acts that use the term security because they are obligated to provide certain types of security.
Referent or beneficiaries of security are the ones that are prone to undesired changes from its surrounding and they include people and social groups, ecosystems, institutions, objects and any other thing that has any kind of value. However, perception of security differ because one can’t truly know precisely how secure something really is. For instance, individuals take their money to the bank for safe keeping but few know that cybercrime is real. The money may be considered safe but it is not that safe especially when the bank has a weak security system that is probably outdated. Even a poultry farmer may provide all the needs to the poultry from scratch such as vitamins and vaccines and food and water but something like a bird virus may come from anywhere and take out their livestock. The poultry is not truly secure because if the bird virus happens, which rarely does, it will take a great toll on the farmer.
It is good to know that is it not really secure just because there is a security system in place. Take for example an antivirus for a computer, if you think that having more than one antivirus in your computer is better, think again. Two antiviruses in one computer is not recommended because they will not work the way they were meant to, it will be like trying to force two drivers to drive one vehicle at the same time which is highly impossible. Without tampering with the security system itself one can use certain methods to change the perception of security. For example, if a home owner puts a sign outside that shows that there are presence of security cameras everywhere then it will repel any intruder that comes. The method will still work even if they are not working at all.
Security is a very vital thing in our day to day life and the right procedures are to be followed if it is to be reliable and effective.
