FIGURE 1-4 Threat and Vulnerability A threat is a set of circumstances that could cause harm. However, we can see a small crack in the wall—a vulnerability that threatens the man’s security. If the water rises to or beyond the level of the crack, it will exploit the vulnerability and harm the man. There are many threats to a computer system, including human-initiated and computer-initiated ones. We have all experienced the results of inadvertent human errors, hardware design flaws, and software failures.

For example, you want your email messages to be just between you and your listed recipients; you don’t want them broadcast to other people. And when you write an essay, you expect that no one can copy it without your permission. These three aspects, confidentiality, integrity, and availability, make your computer valuable to you. But viewed from another perspective, they are three possible ways to make it less valuable, that is, to cause you harm. If someone steals your computer, scrambles data on your disk, or looks at your private data files, the value of your computer has been diminished or your computer use has been harmed.
