System security refers to the measures taken to protect information systems from theft, damage to hardware or software, and disruption or misdirection of services. This includes controlling physical access to hardware and protecting against harm that may come via network access, data and code injection, and operator malpractice. With the increasing reliance on computer systems, including smart devices and wireless networks, system security is becoming increasingly important.
