Protect Against Hackers

Intrusion detection system

With the internet becoming such a huge part of life, both for people and businesses, cyber security is more and more important. 76 percent of organizations have said their reputation was damaged as a result of a breach of cyber security.

Especially with the next generation networks, cyber security is incredibly important. However, businesses are employing intrusion detection systems as well as intrusion prevention systems, which largely render people completely incapable of breaching cyber security systems and gaining access to privileged information.

For instance, in 2011 an international hacker gained access to roughly 3.6 million tax returns after breaking into computer files at the South Carolina Department of Revenue. Had the South Carolina Department of Revenue invested in next gen network security, this breach possibly could have been avoided.

But therein lies the problem. Intrusion prevention systems are crucial to stopping anyone who wants from breaking into confidential, secure information. Among the biggest threats to corporate data and systems traditionally comes from insiders, who have access to systems and data and potentially have the ability to do more damage than outside hackers.

Among the pieces of a powerful contemporary cyber security network is an enterprise firewall. They can be employed to keep out spyware, adware, viruses, trojans and worms, collectively known as malware.

Malware can cause security breaches by working as hooks for unauthorized people to grab onto sensitive information. But with the use of intrusion prevention systems, businesses and people can rest easy knowing their confidential information is as safe as possible.

Both the cost of a security breach and the cost for a lost or stolen record have declined in recent years. But with preventative methods, these costs can be made obsolete.

Buying New Iraqi Dinars


With all of the turmoil in Iraq, we forget that it once used the Indian rupee as its official currency. British occupation after World War I, led it to use the Indian rupee for its money. Even after the dinar came into use, the British pound and the dinar were tied at par value.

Today, many collectors look at the dinar and Iraqi dinar conversion as a viable collectors currency. It is legal tender and available for purchase by collectors and investors. While the Iraqi currency has been volatile, it has some allure to many people.

You can buy Iraqi dinar based on the Iraqi dinar conversion rate from registered brokers. In fact, there are billions of Iraqi dinars being purchased on a monthly basis. As part of your dollar to Iraqi dinar conversion, you can purchase new, uncirculated 10,000 and 25,000 dinar notes. The Central Bank of Iraq issues notes in 50, 250, 1,000, 5,000, 10,000, and 25,000 dinar denominations.

While the value is constantly changing, the Iraqi dinar conversion is now around 1,260 dinars to the dollar. The dinar may be more of a novelty than an investment, but you should do your research.
